What is http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/ pagead/test_domain.js ?
I was getting Kaspersky Security Alert as stated below everytime I browse website's with Google Adsense Content Advertisement in it.
"Application Google Chrome contains link to web page http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/ pagead/test_domain.js used to steal password, credit card number or other confidential data. Denied"
So, got bit worried whether this virus threat was a real threat or a false alert , so just browse the Net to find out more about googleads.g.doubleclick.net
Found out that there is nothing to worry about, as Google bought DoubleClick in 2007 they have some integration things to sort out and there is no harm.
To confirm the status, I sent an email to Kaspersky Virus Lab as stated below and the Virus analyst confirmed it was a false alarm.

Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed in the next update.
Thank you for your help.

Virus analyst, Kaspersky Lab.
Referrals from googleads.g.doubleclick.net are clicks on your AdWords ads showing on the content network - specifically, ads showing on publisher sites in the AdSense program - for which the destination URLs have not been tagged .
As Google acquired double click back in 2007 they started to integrate it into their systems. Some of the ads on the adwords platform are now being served from doubleclick systems hence you see that URL as a referrer. Note this will mostly reflect tr
