Adwords campaign rejected. For Google Matomo javascript is a Malware

I had prepared an adwords campaign but the campaign was rejected and the google assistance told me that “you need to remove the Matomo javascript as it is a malware”. Why?

That’s quite something. Just to make sure that they aren’t correct, can you please make sure that the matomo.js file hasn’t been modified by some other software on the server (it isn’t completly impossible that some malware searched the server for .js files and appended something to all of them).

Can you paste here the content of your matomo.js so we can check if it’s been tampered with?
