LQ Has Malware?


Just stopped by here for the first time in a long time, and I was presented with this by my Google Chrome. It even popped up in the upload window to add the attachment of this screenshot. I'm not sure what they would have picked up, but something here has angered the Google gods. From the sound of the message in the "Details" page, somebody probably posted a link to something fishy on one of the forum topics. Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know.

Interesting. They visited the site two days ago, but have found nothing in the past 90. Yet the site is still dangerous.
Quote:
The result was no malware being downloaded or installed.
Did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.
No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.
This kind of nonsense is why I do not have warnings enabled. I stopped using them after Debian's social contract on their home page was reported as dangerous, with the same kind of warning as this one. "We have found nothing, ever, but the site is dangerous. Really." Debian's social contract is not even a site. Only one part of a site. So the problem of false reporting is not limited to fora. Yet another reason not to use Google. As if there were not enough already.

I turn off all of the google tracking regardless of browser, so no problems here...
