Google safe browsing diagnostic page says:

 

  Malicious software includes 2 trojan(s).

Hi,

Bleepingcomputer hosts a lot of malware removal software, such as DDS, ComboFix, Flash_disinfector, win32kdiag, etc..
Sometimes anti virus programs mistakenly classify those as malicious as an example you can check out the links in this post: link. (Admittedly it's old but the problems remain the same).
So the detected trojans from google where probably legit programs wrongly detected as trojan. Not real infections.
