A web programmer is claiming he found a trojan that reformats Google referral buttons into text ads, the purpose of getting someone to click through to an alternative site.
Shown is a rectangular text ad, but Google doesn’t offer such sizes for its referral buttons. The biggest Google referral block offered is 468 X 60, for a banner, and 120 X 60 for a block. The glaring example shown is a 336 X 280 text ad. So either the web page developer left a lot of whitespace (or in this case, bluespace), or we are not getting the full story here.
