Default BSPlayer Ads used to spread trojans!!!

I just got BSPlayer Lite installed on my Adnroid Tablet/PDA and immediately
got ads claiming (in Russian) I should immediately update Skype. Same ads appears when I watch videos etc.

Being an experianced PC service engineer I have explored suspicious ads and links and found that final link points to generic SMS pay trojan which are widely spreaded in Russia (because of total corruption trojan owners, cellular carriers and police here are in deal). Such trojans send SMS messages to special short numbers so your account becomes immediately empty.

As I said ad claim in Russian that I should update Skype
I've especially taped ad to open page. Then explored links from Android device and from PC.
As you tap ad BSPlayer opens browser and goes to:
ht___tp:// 2c4
This link is just redirect to:
ht___tp:// 2e4
On this stage fake Skype page opens which claims in Russian that
critical update for Skype is available.
If you tap Download Skype link at the bottom JavaScript performes and opens:
ht___tp:// v2d4w2e4&nb
This one is redirected to direct download URL:
for Android or
for PC, depending on that is "User Agent" field of your browser

As I understand ads are region specific so it may be necessary to use Russian proxy and/or OS regional settings to see that ad from other regions.

Please perform actions to stop such a dangerous ads ASAP!!!
Thank you!

You should report this issue to AdMob, the ad provider.
