Re: Malware through ads...

The research pair said there was very little advertising networks could do to prevent the attacks.

My first thought when I read this was, "Why not?" It's not as though at least one app store has made a reasonable attempt at controlling their process. This shouldn't be that much different. Ads generate enough revenue to be able to support some in-house vetting. Taking control of the process rather than allowing their customers to have free rein would go a long way toward filtering out the riffraff.
