Malware Warning on Google Chrome
Possibly a Residual Alarm from a Previous, Now Fixed, Infection?

I'm searching for a solution now-- apparently this virus is being inserted all over the web (there are references to it everywhere, if you google it).

Google Chrome even blocked the Google-owned YouTube.

Until we get this fixed you might want to keep off this site. Maybe turn off the computer.

Explanation? Gabe did what I didn't and read to the end.

The errors are similar to the experience of many Chrome users earlier in the week, when error warnings spread wide Monday morning after a Silicon Valley web-advertising company's website was hacked with malware.

In the earlier case, Netseer's corporate website was infected, which caused Chrome to block it; however, the company's ad-serving infrastructure and corporate website had the same domain, so any ad served by Netseer caused Chrome to block the page.

Google did not immediately respond to an email request for comment Saturday, outside normal business hours, but said in response to Monday's incident that it does not comment on individual malware cases.

Well, that's not as clear as I'd like it, but what I think it means is that this is a false warning, at the moment.

I think it means that, at least. I think it means that malware was detected, and now all of Netseer is being blacklisted by Chrome, despite the fact that the malware problem is (again, I think this is what they mean) now handled.
