Drive-By Down­load

This is the term used for a device which becomes infected with mal­ware solely by vis­iting a web­site. Web­sites affected often con­tain rep­utable offers and have been com­pro­mised before­hand to dis­tribute mal­ware. Simply “surfing” to an affected web­site is enough to infect a device.
