Why Malware Warnings Took Over the Internet Today

The Atlantic

Unlike NetSeer, those that carry the temporary Google warning have no harmful content on them  — and users who see the warning pages shouldn't worry about malware infections, according to NetSeer and The Guardianone of the dozens of affected sites. It's unclear if Google meant to block both the domain that serves the ads, as well as the NetSeer company website.

Meanwhile, NetSeer claims it has removed all the malware from its own website and is working with Google throughout the day to take its domain off the Chrome blacklist, as the company explained in a statement:

Our operations team went into all-hands-on-deck mode and we have successfully cleaned the site of the malware issue. We are also working with Google to do an expedited review of the site and remove the site from the malware impacted site-list so that browsing behavior can be restored for all users.

So, whenever that happens, all of those foreboding messages popping up across the Internet should disappear, too.
