At the time, it was better to not allow banners to be clicked since a
vulnerability was present. OpenX has released another update that may fix
the issue. Can you somebody please confirm that this has been fixed? I have
enable the links again for testing.

This is terrible and egg on our face as a appsec org, the purpose of it is
to run ads with links to content and drive advertising.

There is a problem with Open X (the advertising program used to run the
ads).  It has been this way for several months, and as far as I know there
are not any pending fixes or upgrades.

How come the banner ad's do not link to the website that they are promoting?
