We are facing an issue with Google AdWords marking as Malicious. Whenever we create a Google Ad Google disapproves it.
We also tried with a default Ghost installation too, but the error is the same. Has anyone else faced a similar issue?
Any help will be great.

View and fix issues by going to the Policy Manager. For each issue, you can do one of the following:
• Edit your ad to fix the issue. Saving your ads after editing them will automatically resubmit your ads for approval. As such, you do not need to submit your ads for review again manually.
• For ads with destination issues, first fix your ads’ destination page, then hover over the ad’s “Status” column and click the “Appeal” button to submit your ads for review.
We review most ads within 1 business day. Some reviews may take longer if an ad requires a more complex review.
If you have successfully fixed the policy issues, the ad’s status will change to “Eligible” after some time.
