They didnt send me malware, werent overly intrusive and didnt generally get in the way of a fast browser experirence - cf lot of US news sites post GDPR stripped all the adverts and they run at 10% of the download size and page load many many time faster
But the malware is the real issue. Sort out the security, stop reselling the ad platforms 6 layers deep and dont take 20 seconds to page load.....
In the Uk they are done through the DVLA to the registered owner - ie the Takata airbag recall got my 2008 car recalled late last year. But even with that central register its a still problem, and even more so in the IoT world where things never get patches even from large well known manufacturers
