Of course, the Magic.wizards.com website is not considered to be malicious or unethical; However, Magic.wizards.com is consciously financing a malicious advertising network to promote themselves and malicious advertising networks utilize unethical advertisements and show advertisements that promote malware, adware, spyware, and other serious computer threats. This means that Magic.wizards.com is supporting malware and the spread of malware by deliberately paying its distributor.

Advertisements displayed by malicious advertising networks are typically aggressive and deceptive. Malicious ad-networks show advertisements including pop-up ads, pop-under ads, and in-text ads that legitimate ad-networks such as Google AdSense don’t. Some advertisements are designed to trick people into downloading malware. For example, they flaunt updates and media players that don’t exist and instead download malware when clicked.

Malicious advertising networks are usually used by websites that contain content legitimate ad-networks recognize as prohibited such as websites that contain video streams, torrents, and adult content. These websites use the networks to generate revenue although the networks may be malicious and penalize them in some way.
