We are currently researching our network partners in conjunction with Google Tech to ensure that whatever Advertiser is serving the Malware is removed. We believe the steps we have taken have already resolved the issue on our end and now we are just waiting for Google to confirm the removal of the offending party.
We apologize for any inconvenience this warning may have caused. Our primary goal is to ensure the IZEA Media network is safe and we take any possible attack on our services and Influencers very seriously.
UPDATE FROM IZEA CEO, TED MURPHY:
Our team has been working diligently to resolve this problem. We have determined that the ad was not served by any direct IZEA client, but rather through a well-known partner network that we use to backfill some inventory.
We have removed all third party networks except Google for the time being. We are working to clear this alert on our end, but we do suggest you look at all third party networks. I apologize for this issue. Clearly the partner network did not intend to let this slip through, but it certainly is a “pain in the arse” as noted below.
