Fake ads on Google

Warning: Google is hosting fake ads for the well-known, open-source password manager KeePass. People at Malwarebytes say the ads go to a look-alike site that installs FakeBat malware.

Problems:
1. Google's own Ad Transparency Center says the ads were paid for by Digital Eagle, one of their "verified" advertisers.
2. The ads look so real they can fool security people.

So think twice before clicking an ad even if Google offers it to you...
