    My ad campaigns keep getting this message when i create a new ad and won't get approved. I'm using a cloaker, is there a way to bypass this ?

    It has nothing to do with this.

    Or this:

    Check your WP plugins. Google's in-depth scan is picking up some malware somewhere.

    You can check your safe page here - https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home and see if it reports the exact location of the issue.

    Don't use cloaker before you create ad. Cloaker comes in place after your ad have been approved and ran smoothly for some time

    That's good for you, but this has nothing to do with text.

    The Google bot is picking up some form of malware either on the landing page itself or through the site crawl. The most common source of this issue is malicious code injected into WordPress plugins.

    adwords malicious or unwanted software probably your landing contains the virus or fake virus things, dont use cloak before the ads get approved.

    Alright, so, this is probably caused by some malicious code in your landing page. Since you mentioned using cloaker, as far as I know, you need to paste the PHP code in your landing page or upload the index file.

    May be google is able to catch that.

    Try changing your cloaker. Or get your campaign approved first, then cloak.

    If in case you are using multiple accounts or had multiple accounts suspended in the past, and those accounts have a domain registered on a common name or common hosting, this can still happen. Another scenario is when shared hosting is used which i doubt you'd be using since shared hosting have 1 ip for 1000's of sites and because of any other site on that ip, it can be flagged permanently for malicious code warning.

    What about the domain registrant details? Are the domains being used registered on same name?

    Can I crack a cold joke here please?

    If a single cloaker cannot work, you can try double cloaking tools.

    Hope It Helps,
