See this question on Meta Security SE: security se reported by chrome as a suspected phishing site

They mention this question on Security SE: Is the Facebook login form using SSL without https in the URL?

Note the dates of that question. I'm still getting the error. Do I just have a caching problem, or is Google still flagging this for other people?

    It's still flagging it. I just tried it and got the warning. I used the "Report an error" link. – jonsca Oct 23 '11 at 8:18

  • Nothing unusual viewing it through the Android default browser. – John Oct 23 '11 at 15:59
  • Firefox and Chrome do not report anything on that link (anymore). – Time Traveling Bobby Oct 23 '11 at 16:35

    I flagged it as a false alert using Google's report form, and posted a link to this discussion. We will see whether that helps any – Pëkka Oct 23 '11 at 17:25

This is out of our control.

Basically, it looks like some combination of "security", "facebook-com", and "https" gets Google all hot and bothered about phishing. It's... understandable, although incorrect.

All we can do is suggest people report these false positives to Google, a number of the dev team have.
