Chrome identifies this website  as unsafe as it contains malware

 

This forum is  safe and contains a wealth of distribution forum. I have used it for a long time

This website has distro reviews.

 

http://desktoplinuxreviews.com/

 

http://distrowatch.com/ and has free weekly topical linux online news

According to VirusTotal, Google SafeBrowsing doesn't flag it. Also, I'm not receiving any warnings when accessing it via Google Chrome.

What's the point of posting this here? What do you want us to do?

Sorry for being imprecise

 

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ is flagged as unsafe by Chrome while http://linuxforums.org/ is safe.

Alright, what about it? What do you want us to do? You should report this as a False Positive to Google.

Presumably because something posted on it has caused it to be flagged.

 

VirusTotal reports vary for the two ....

As Aura says, if you believe it to be a FP then report it as such.
