Interesting report of stolen Bitcoins, a phishing scam involving a Google ad. I just confirmed that the phishing ad is still running on Google on a search for blockchain.

The ad says the URL goes to The URL displayed on mouseover on the link is to a Google redirector, But when you click the link you go through a few redirectors and end up at, which is allegedly a phishing site. It sure looks suspicious; that page goes straight to a “type in your password” page, which the real site hides behind several clicks.

I don’t much care about the Bitcoin part of this, but Google should really not be selling ads with fake URLs on display.
