Re: flydogy = Warning -> Malicious Sources/Malnets

Malicious Sources/Malnets
Sites that host or distribute malware or whose purpose for existence is as part of a malicious network (malnet) or the malware ecosystem. Malware is defined as software that takes control of a computer, modifies computer settings, or collects or reports personal information without the permission of the end user. It also includes software that misrepresents itself by tricking users to download or install it or to enter personal information. This includes sites or software that perform drive-by downloads; browser hijackers; dialers; any program that modifies your browser homepage, bookmarks, or security settings; and keyloggers. It also includes any software that bundles malware (as defined above) as part of its offering. Information collected or reported is "personal" if it contains uniquely identifying data, such as email addresses, name, social security number, IP address, etc. A site is not classified as malware if the user is reasonably notified that the software will perform these actions (e.g., it alerts that it will send personal information, be installed, or that it will log keystrokes).

Riskware When Doing A Google Search
On one of my Google Chrome accounts I get a message "Website blocked due to riskware" whenever I try to do a google search on a specific account. The other account I use for google chrome has no issues. I tried scanning and a few other things but not sure what this is and why it is showing up. Is it something I should be worried about? Could this be a serious threat?

Re: flydogy

The only way I have found to resolve this issue is to uninstall Chrome and then do a fresh install.  This has resolved this issue on my windows desktop and laptop.  I did a fresh chrome install over a week ago on my desktop and have had no issue since.  Just did a fresh install on my laptop today and everything seems good.

In Chrome with Norton Safe Web extension enabled I do a search in Google and then click to open a site that comes up from the search.  No matter what website I try to open (including Norton's) I get "Malicious Site Blocked, you attempted to access https: // /metric/?wid= 52743".
