Unfortunately, those ads you mention are rampant. Many sites don't care who they sell ad space to. So those scammers get ads on normal websites. I constantly see the "follow this one simple tip", and "penny stocks" ads. This is how malicious Flash ads get spread, too. A company not caring who they sell to, and the ad company slipping in Flash exploits.Even Blizzard got nailed by this. They are usually careful who they sell ad space to, but one time a malicious ad got in on the forums, and it was trying to install rogue antivirus software on people's systems, but the CM's didn't believe the many people claiming it, until one finally found it themselves.
