I have just received the following email - Hello,

We wanted to alert you that one of your sites violates our advertising
policies. Therefore, we won't be able to run any of your ads that link to
that site, and any new ads pointing to that site will also be disapproved.

Here's what you can do to fix your site and hopefully get your ad running

1. Make the necessary changes to your site that currently violates our

Display URL: <edited by a Community Manager as noted below>

Policy violation: Malicious content
Details & instructions:

2. Resubmit your site to us, following the instructions in the link above.
If your site complies with our policies, we can approve it to start running

Repeated violations of our advertising policies could result in a
suspension of your AdWords account, so it's important to address any issues
as soon as possible by reviewing our policies. To learn more about AdWords
suspension policies, please visit

I have been unable to verify my site using this link however I instead downloaded the Google Adsense tool which was able to verify my site. Unfortunately my site doesn't appear to have been verified elsewhere and I am unable to achieve this.

I am miffed to say the least!

Any help would be appreciated.
