Teaser ads are supposed to trigger interest in a specific event or a product (Teaser). Despite the fact that the company might be proceeding in Russia legitimately, security researchers worry that its advertisements are anything but intriguing and useful. Their layout resembles deceptive Russian ads that are labeled as unfit to be viewed or interacted with.

Fake news are polluting the web more and more, and users should not help creators of these vicious ads to earn even more money.
