Just a few minutes ago, my antivirus started picking up the google ads as phishers. Every link I click on brings up my AV (which gets pretty annoying).
I don't recognize any of them, so I assume google got a new batch of ads that happen to be phishing ads.
Can anything be done? I personally don't want to have to turn off my AV.

other than ABP you could attempt to report the ads to Google, or if they are adsense find out what site the ads are supporting and in the adsense block those ads from popping up

I use Firefox but was going to convert over to Chrome today. Adblock was very nice though.
Ads are no longer showing up as phishers on my AV (Kaspersky). Ended at 3:19.
Someone may have reported them already,

Enable Kaspersky's ad-blocker.

Somewhere in the settings. I uninstalled it about a few weeks ago. I also believe it wasn't included in KAV, only in KIS. In KIS it should be enabled by default. Anyways, my point was that I never see any ads and wouldn't even notice a difference. :o
