Guardian in phone hacking advert shocker!

Here's one for Media Monkey - Media Guardian carrying ads on how to tap mobile phones, linked to its stories about the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

It was spotted by Patrick Smith who writes on his blog: "I’m reluctant to post this because it is the kind of thing that could happen to anyone, but it does show the danger of auto-serving ad systems."

Quite right, get Nick Davies to investigate.

We've now blocked the specific urls in question, and are working closely with Google to prevent any similar adverts from appearing in the future.
