Default Found it!

I found the ad campaign that seems to be responsible for this -- it's titled "Emanace - Free Xbox". I was taking a closer look at all 468x60 campaigns and noticed that one of them wasn't clickable. Very odd, I thought -- who ever heard of a banner advertiser not interested in users clicking on their ad?? When I right-clicked on the picture in the ad to get the location of where it is served from, I saw something very familiar:
_http://www.searchplain.com/ADSAdClient37/GetAd/J43/TF=_NEW/1011/SC=LG/LOC=R/ID=0006BFFD968BB8AD/
I guess they are using the referer string to load a clean ad when viewed in the FastClick publisher interface and a virus carrying version for the rest of websites.
