I just noticed that on my own sites as well as here at Hubpages, Google's doubleclick ads are serving malware.
My Avast! anti-virus is showing it as a Google doubleclick ad. A search shows this has happened numerous times with doubleclick.
They are an ad sponsor that shows ads in Google's adsense blocks. So now you know, hope they get it fixed soon.
Hmm, now I am getting the same warning on all my embedded youtube videos. Google owns youtube. I think they are having a major hacking problem right now.
Wow, I'm even getting it on Google's homepage! Someone must be targeting Google with hacks today, this is going to be messy.
I'm starting to wonder if Avast! is sending out false positives with their last update. I'm getting flags on many sites and all facebook applications.
Another hubber said his Avast! was flagging Hubpages, same anti-virus as mine. It has happened in the past that Avast! gives out false positives.
I think this is the problem for anyone using Avast! anti-virus:

Basically an update resulted in many false positives. However why I'm getting them now I'm not sure.
Sorry, one more thing. If you have Avast! anti-virus, update it to the most recent one today! Otherwise you will be getting false-positives. I just did and all is well now.
That's all, nothing to see here,,,, move along now,,,

For the past 5 or 6 hours I have been dealing with some fraud and identity theft that I discovered and I'm now really weary of my online security; I hope some HP "techies" can help... I use the Windows 7 built-in firewall and I use the free version of Avast for antivirus. ...

Everytime I try to pull up a Hub Page or edit a Hub Page, my Avast kicks in and tells me Malware has been blocked. I tried it in Firefox and Chrome and got warnings on both.
