It is important to note that Chrome blocks this site as “enganoso,” but Bing and Edge don’t. It’s also worth mentioning that the deceptive ad doesn’t show up every time on any system. This most likely means that it may be targeted geographically. Researchers were only able to reproduce the deceptive behavior in Microsoft Edge.

It appears that the ad was circling the Web earlier this year, em abril, when Microsoft removed it. Several months later, and the ad is back in an identical form. The current status of the ad is that it has once again been removed by Microsoft. A empresa, Contudo, hasn’t provided any explanation as to why the ad appeared to be served from google.com. It’s also unclear whether the general issue has been entirely fixed, which means that such behavior may be seen again in the future.
