AdSense Video Ads Trigger Security Alert in Norton

3 comments

Jennifer reports that Norton Internet Security has started displaying an intrusion alert warning when a Google AdSense video ad is displayed.

It is not clear why the alerts have started showing up now, considering that the video ads have been out for a couple of months. It is possible that something was changed with either the AdSense code or Norton Internet Security. According to Jennifer:

“It is also worth noting that this alert is triggered by video ads appearing through the regular AdSense JavaScript used by regular publishers. It is not a problem only affecting premium publishers or publishers utilizing some of the special AdSense video ad beta tests.”

If you are an AdSense publisher, this is something to look into.
