serve.bannersdontwork

Anyone heard of this malware? On another forum I frequent a few members are reporting seeing some odd hyperlinks in other posts. One member reported seeing something about addbannersdontwork. Doing a Google search sends me to a Firefox forum issue which further reports about serve.bannersdontwork.

When I Google that I end up with a bunch of links to removal but none of these sites look like reputable malware removal sites like Malwarebytes, etc.

Based on my experience with Hosts files & the like - me thinks it's a nasty ad-server that should be stuck in your Hosts file or Restricted Sites zone or both.

If you find something that is infecting from that, let us know.
