I wish Google would screen their advertising buyers a little better.Just like when you hit a legitimate site, and they have a Flash exploit ad which forwards you to a fake "antivirus" site which tries to convince you that your system is infected, and you need to install their "antivirus". They need to screen their ad buyers better.

Didn't Google have another "Sponsored Link" problem awhile back that was a fake site that downloaded a keylogger or virus or something? I think it was even a WoW site?Anyway, lesson learned, never click the Sponsored Links, since Google doesn't appear to screen them at all.

Yes, they did. After many people complained about it, they took it down.They don't screen these damn things. You purchase advertising space, you get in.

I came here to bring up the same point. Google is royally falling down on the job here. They were running a service off their search engine that would warn you if you clicked a dangerous site. That service seems rather worthless considering it's not even going to protect you from links they are handing you.The fact is by running these ads, they are endorsing the links contained within. Google needs to take a lot more heat for this.
