YouTube promoting Zango via!

I already knew Zango weren't gone for good, contrary to popular belief, as ZangoCash (a favourite amongst the PPI (pay per install) crowd) is still very much online. However, I wasn't expecting this;

As shown by JohnC (Malware Domain List), this clearly shows Zango being peddled courtesy of a video on YouTube, that's been posted by (congrats to those running MGF - you've now been added to hpHosts - we don't like malware, which is exactly what Zango is).

Is this a one off? I doubt it, is YouTube directly involved? I doubt it - but it shows yet again that sites that allow user content to go unchecked, is always going to lead to trouble.
