From a news article May 22, 2010


Quote:
A Google spokesman said the company had discovered malware in ads from DoubleClick on its own and halted them. "In this case, we stopped several of the ads in question on the same day, independent of this report," he said.

"When our automated system is able to identify a problem, we immediately stop serving the affected ads, and then work to refine our security measures to help capture and disable similar ads for all DoubleClick publishers and advertisers," the company said in a statement.

"DoubleClick's ad serving products maintain a security monitoring system that screens ads and is constantly adapting to respond to new developments, yet publishers are in control of what ads they serve when using DoubleClick services," the Google statement said. "We encourage publishers to maintain good quality processes, especially in terms of the networks and advertisers they deal with, and we provide tips and tricks at 'link here' ."

However, the Google spokesman said it was highly unlikely that malware was served on Google, adding that DoubleClick ads do not run on Google search.

Google bought DoubleClick (for 3.1 Billion USD). Apparently, DoubleClick had some bad adverts with viruses.
