I was looking for some information in Google, there was some note like,"this website can harm your computer,use it at your own risk", something like that. I never opened it but could not figure out the meaning of this. Any ideas? How could opening a website harm my computer?
That would be a website that has been known to host malware in the past. So you could get your computer infected by visiting that site. You do not have to download files deliberately to get infected, this can happen simply by your browser interacting with an infected site.
Viruses could be automatically downloaded, too many pop-ups, etc.
Thanks, but who wants to... oh, I see, automatically. Well, why Google allows that?
Google can't control what shows up on searches.
I thought they do control for some extent. May be not. I wanted to open that website anyway but something hold me back, I am glad I didn't. My virus protection next to nothing.
A site may produce a warning even though it is currently clean. The warning pertains to known issues in the past. Webmasters can request to have their sites checked and then removed from the blacklist.
On the other hand, Google does have the power to exclude sites from its searches by de-indexing them, if it so wishes.
