    Google Chrome shows me red alerting page when i try to open this site. Is this false or may be the forum was cracked?

    Google probably detected that someone posted a phishing link in the forum and tagged the site as dangerous.

    A link to that link?
    Is this a new way of censorship?
    So I can post a "dangerous" link to a website of my enemies and it will be blocked by a click of a finger??

    When we live in a world where people measure AV products on how much it finds and block without any verification, this is hat we get.... hyper oversensitive sh#t where false positive is for some reason valued...

    @SventBent Personally, I do not think it is a false negative.
    @encode Could be a link or an executable, I do not know.
    It is also not censorship, just a warning to visit at your own risk.
    BTW, you can report a detection problem to Google (there is a link in their advisory screen).
