8th case of a Weekend AdWords Phishing Ad for AdWords account logins

Hello,

 

I am used to seeing AdWords Ads with phishing landing pages almost every weekend.

Here is another one on the search term "adwords" , location Bucharest, Romania, browser language=english. See screenshot in the link

 

https://goo.gl/2BvumZ

 

The click ID is this :

https://www.google.ro/aclk?sa=L&ai=CkVMz1NtGVuDuB-KrywP8kZ7gDrfCysQH38-v4JMCi5nxBQgAEAIoA2CDpeGF6BvI...

 

It is leading initially to http://blobik.xyz/a48w/ , but the final URL I am seeing is this domain http://adwords-bgd.xyz/

 

The complete final url is this 

 

http://adwords-bgd.xyz/ServiceLogin_service=adwords&continue=adwords.google.com-um-gaiaauth_apt3DNon...

 

Here is the landing page screenshot :

@MosheTLV Please forward this to the appropriate security team.

I currently have the reply feature disabled so I am sorry I could not be able to answer in this thread.

 

As advised I will report the phishing page at https://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/

but this form does not request proper information for phising using AdWords Ads. It only requests the landing page URL.

 

And after the previous report last week,  the phishing AdWords Ad was still active for more than 24 hours,from Friday to Sunday, so I suspect that whoever reads phishing reports from that form is also not working during weekends.

@Adrian B;

Google asked to report, during the weekends, to the team monitoring scam,  through the link I provided, OR  AdWords feedback form  was updated to include a direct link to report phishing. (The last option on the form)

https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/4578507?rd=1#ts=6006595

Both links report directly to   engineers monitoring network safety.

Thanks!
