Note the red circle in front of my hub in the Google search results below:
Avira Safe Search in Mozilla produces this:
Bing does exactly what Chrome does, as you can see below. Note that the PetHelpful hub is not flagged.
It is a false flag from Avira. Probably HP had a malicious ad at some time and Avira has never got over it.
Google and Bing do not show those indicators. It's done by some add-on you have that may be taking data from places like Avira (as Will pointed out). Maybe your Chrome installation had add-ons included that are giving you those false flags.
I get no such warning either. You might be able to whitelist it in your anti-virus application, and then clear your browser cache.
Thank you. It's not my computer, so I won't be changing any settings, but I'll point out that their virus protection isn't accurate.
My main concern is that HubPages has to be added as an exception. If the Avira algorithm "sees" HubPages as a source of Malware, won't it hurt traffic?
I didn't choose, buy, or install the software; it was just what was on my friend's computer.
Avira is a good product. I think this issue is why I uninstalled it though. If I remember correctly I messaged them about it to tell them why I was going to go with something else. I guess the 'good news' is more and more people are browsing with smart phones.
