Malware block from FT ads

Anyone else getting errors from the endpoint protection software blocking traffic to known malware hosts from what looks to be embedded ads on FT?

The domains I am seeing identified as suspect are:

ibclick.stream [104.24.127.254]
reichelcormier.bid [95.211.129.235]
v91-u.valuehost.ru [217.112.35.57]
an.yandex.ru [93.158.134.90]

The ibclick.stream is from FlyerTalk, our in-house tool for GDPR policy tracking.

The rest admittedly look like long-tail external domains associated with ad bidding / slots - this looks to be triggered by the ad technology stack, not nefarious - depending on your opinion on the ads
