Apparently the ads inject into Firefox, edge, and chrome. Read the above link for full details, can also steal credentials and stop updates. Win 10 Defender detects it.

This distribution system offers up software for download that unwitting victims run.
So it would seem easy to avoid. Just don't accept software download offers.

Depends how it is offered. Some might go for free Games download.
