None of the other options for flagging the article apply, but I think it's wrong to leave an article containing such dangerously wrong advice published on the site, where other developers who don't understand the error will blindly copy the code and believe that they're protected.

I would go for the existant "extremly poor quality" or the "innacurate / misleading"
actually misleading would fit, don't you think?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Was somewhat surprised to see one of those questionable "Important Notice! Updated drivers are critical for your PC to function correctly! Check for drivers now!" ads in the header. Does a programming/computer using specialist website like CP want to be associated with such tactics? Most of us are knowledgeable enough to resist, but a newbie may get infected because they think CP really condones the product.
Did the ad have a little "x" in the top left? If so, click it and report it - we remove the crap ads ASAP. If it didn't then please take a screenshot and copy the URL and email it to me (chris@ codeproject).
Those ads aren't acceptable. I've asked our AdOps team to dig in and ensure they are blocked.
We use a third party provider to backfill ads during slow times and we do our best to really trim them down to relevant ads, but unfortunately some slip through, hence our own "report this ad" system. Sometimes 3rd party ads simply don't appear in a form our system can spot. We had a meeting on this issue today and Yuriy's going to dig in and beef it up a little more.
Baffling. Unless there is a small chance Google has a redirect misdirect between banner and add (which doesn't make sense either)? I don't know, and you probably won't either, but the fact that many searches for popular and useful software turns up links to malware _before_ the actual software's site doesn't give me great faith in them. Nor does the fact that without verbatim search on, it is almost unusable for me. (But with verbatim it is fantastic.)
It's about the points gained in the latest 24 hours, not all time. Are you sure you have gained more than 165 points the latest 24 hours? And as Kornfeld Eliyahu Peter said, it is a cached list, so it takes some time before it's updated.
