Re: Another WinFixer infiltration...this time on www.wfaa.com
I took a look at the source and found zedo. That seemed to ring a bell, as they haven't always had a sterling reputation.

The new zedo:
It seems they have grown up a bit and are now the third largest company in their market. As the first and second companies have been acquired, I would think they are trying very hard to clean up their image and would be very sensitive to any suggestion of impropriety.
Nonetheless, I was able to find what sounds like a similar problem on the travelpod web site. It's a long thread, but very informative. It seems zedo serves ads in rotation and when they have exhausted their supply, they serve google ads through the zedo servers. In this case it seems to have been a google ad that was hijacked.
