I'm just browsing SO questions and I see an ad for the Photo SE. This one in particular: alt text

I'm intrigued, so I click on it, and do you know what greets me? This:

So I was just wondering why this was showing up? I'm running Chrome 9.0.587.0 on Windows 7 (64-bit)


It should be noted that just navigating to photo.stackexchange.com does not cause this warning to popup. However if you try to click on that exact question you still get this warning.

It looks like Matt Grum's Website is hosting malware - intentionally, or unintentionally, because he links to his site in a response to that question, it is throwing the malware warning.

@yes, i don't have mod on there, i've asked on our internal chat for someone to do it (if you have mod on there go for it) –  Zypher Nov 29 '10 at 16:51
    
That seems to have fixed it - Chrome 7 doesn't report anything suspicious now, and I suspect different versions are using the same anti-malware service. –  Piskvor Nov 29 '10 at 17:06
