"Maladverttising" cause for suspension[ Edited ]
July 2016 - last edited July 2016 by Buzzb
Is it possible that by working with third party ad network whom may be serving unknown advertisements that serve malware can cause publisher to have account suspended for malware?
We have account suspended, and despite all available 3rd party reporting tools for malware, are getting clean bill of health (<edited by a Community Manager as noted below>). The only option we can figure out is that an ad network set to fill advertising inventory is serving malware. Google Adwords rep shared outbound url that was detected, but we can't find the url in our source code.

Hi @Brad O,
Yes, in general publishers are held responsible in such cases because they are the ones who allowed bad ads to serve on their sites/apps. You must check with your third party ad network to ensure no such ads are allowed to be served on your site. You can give them the URL Google rep gave you. It will help them dig in better.
