Hundreds of users choose to have their computer infected with a virus

badad.pngWired has a story about a security researcher who paid for a Google ad saying “Is your PC virus-free? Get it infected here!”

The ad was loaded onto pages 260,000 times and 409 users actually clicked on the link! That means that out of every 1000 times a site was loaded showing the link, 1.6 users actually clicked to get their computer infected.
