Oh dear, not good news, especially for google and its advertisers.

A London-based team of security researchers has exposed a scheme which inserted unauthorised adverts into Google's YouTube.

Spider.io discovered two programmes which placed ads on YouTube's website when viewed by affected PCs. It said the plug-in had been promoted as tools to download videos from the service. It said some directed users to malware.

This was in breach of YouTube's rules.

Nor the YouTube publishers, I would expect.
