Are those machines still running as "root" and open to the net?
I hope not. To the best of my knowledge the problem is gone. The article said they would place a legitimate ad first then replace it with a malicious ad second. I didn't get any indication the ads are self perpetuated. They got busted and servers were confiscated. I'm guessing after a few days the possibility of getting this virus/bad ad is gone.
Buyer protection is for when you buy something and it isn't delivered..or doesn't do what it said it would etc..
Or doesn't do what it said is what I'm basing my dispute on. The claims were fake, the solution was fake. Maybe I'll get my money back...
