These requirements apply to your ads and any software that your site or app either hosts or links to, regardless of whether the software is promoted through the Google advertising network. The following isn’t allowed:
Malicious software or ‘malware’ that may harm or gain unauthorized access to a computer, device, or network

How to Prevent Malware Attacks on WordPress Websites?
Check the status of your site in the Google Search Console. If you haven’t used Search Console before, enter the URL of your website and click ‘Add a property’ to see its status. You may need to verify that you own the site.
If the Search Console doesn’t report any problems, your site could still have security issues that were detected by Google Ads. Consult with your webmaster or web hosting provider to investigate further. Learn more about how we identify malicious or unwanted software.
Removal of Malware or any unwanted software.
Google provides resources and instructions to help you fix your site through Help for Hacked Websites. If you can’t fix the ad’s destination, update the ad with a new destination that complies with this policy.
Edit the ad.
Editing the ad will resubmit the ad and its destination for review. Most ads are reviewed within one working day, but some can take longer if they need a more complex review.
