Ib.adnxs.com is shown in the communication log (live)

QubesOS was installed with the support of someone with a test release version. As you can see in the image, there seems to be a communication directed to ib.adnxs.com. Is it possible for Linux to be infected with this malware? The only thing I can think of is that I was browsing pornhub and hitomi.la with Firefox. I didn’t think it was possible to get infected via a browser.

The communication log in the image is from a monitoring package called ntopng from PFSense (which allows admin login only from certain ports and blocks admin login from ports that connect to the net).

It’s just some AD site, install some adblock in FIrefox.

Thanks. I’ve been looking into this and it seems that installing Windows apps installs adnxs.com malware and causes WindowsDefender to warn them. I only have Untrusted, Youtube and other distribution sites open right now, but I just checked and they are no longer in the logs, so it may have just been a temporary connection.

I will add Adblock to Firefox and see how it goes for a while longer.
