This site may harm your computer

Hold on! I’m not saying that this site (ychittaranjan.wordpress.com) will harm your computer! Its the message that i saw now amongst some of the Google searches I ran today! And its surprising to note that its been showing since a few weeks! Funny…I must be doing all safe searches as I did not see this notice till now :mrgreen:

The warning’s part of Google’s ‘Concerns about content in our index’:

We want our users to feel safe when they search the web, and we’re continuously working to identify dangerous sites and increase protection for our users. This warning message appears with search results that we’ve identified as sites that may install malicious software on your computer

Via Google Support

So, how does Google know that the site in question is a malware spreader? Maybe they’re getting some help from the StopBadware.org people. Maybe they’re using IE 7’s Report this site feature!

Clicking on the errant link in the search page opens up a warning message that urges user to pick another result from the search results or continue to the site at your own risk. Hmm…..good suggestion. But in my search query, 4 or so results had this warning and the remaining results didn’t seem relevant! So what do I do then? I chose to post this :mrgreen:
