Google is Encrypting Ads to ensure safety

Advertisements shown by web sites are vulnerable, making us vulnerable. The problem has existed since when web sites began showing advertisements. In Ads Take a Step Towards “HTTPS Everywhere” Google has announced that it is working on ensuring that encryption (using the HTTPS protocol) is used for all advertisements shown on its web sites, including YouTube, to hopefully keep us safe from attacks made through advertisements. All YouTube ads already use the secure HTTPS protocol. Google intends to have most advertisements that it serves up on its web sites to be fully encrypted by late this year.
