Malicious File Alert

Today i am getting malicious message alert when i try to download any file with chrome.
It says website may be hacked try again later.
Not had this come up before.
Tried https://edgeemu.net & www.c64.com and both are ok for
downloading.

Wonder of technology, this filename-based malware detection mechanism. The bad guys will never be able to figure it out.

Thanks Perff!

Quoting Mr Ammo
In the meantime, just turn off the protection for malicious sites/software in your browser.

Just what I did in FF yesterday.

Hadn't even known yet that browsers come including pesudo security snake oil nowadays /o\ Do they want to make Avira, Norton, McAffe, Acast and other annoying shit bankrupt?

Anyway, interesting solution approach, thx, Perff

PS: works on FF too now with nonsense activated ^^

The life span of this work-around by Perf has ended.
Both firefox and google chrome are complaining^H^H^H^H^H^ warning again that the files are malicous / virus / malware.

This marking of a file as suspicious based on how frequently it is downloaded is dubious to me altogether. Is something that is rarely downloaded inherently dangerous? I don't buy it. :D Especially files in a non-executable format...
