I have not seen this warning at all - neither last night or today, in Chrome or Firefox.

There is a warning with that link, but it say this:
What happened when Google visited this site?

Of the 1 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-01-31, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.
This site was hosted on 5 network(s) including AS14618 (AMAZON), AS31988 (ARISTEIA), AS16509 (AMAZON).

Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?


Over the past 90 days, netseer.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

Has this site hosted malware?


No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.

What type of ads are you getting? Is the warning for the same site? 'Cause the site is clean as shown above.

I also shortly after this received the same warning in reference to the same 3rd party cm.netseer.com site from another site unrelated to guru or curse.

Contacted the Curse dev team just in case and received this as a response: "As per the ad network there was a cookie sync with a domain that google blacklisted, but no risk of actual malware spreading."

Thanks for reporting the issue.
