I just received this message while I was trying to visit the home page of Dzogchen Blog:

"Warning: Something's Not Right Here!
dzogchenworld.ning.com contains content from http://www.ustream.tv, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.

Does anybody else have the same problem?

It seems your anti-virus software or malware protection software is acting strange.

USTREAM is a legit website, and has a global audience - just like YouTube. It is not "known" to distribute malware at all.

What is going on however, is that Google has flagged USTREAM as a dangerous site that may possibly harm your computer. And what is the competing site of USTREAM? YouTube. Who does YouTube have a partnership with? Google. So, easy solution for Google then, go with the smear-campaign: Flag any and all links from USTREAM as "dangerous".

My anti-virus software and malware protection software has no problems with USTREAM at all.

Dronma, I got the same message too..I just ignored it for the reasons listed above. In fact there was a virus a while back called the "google redirect virus" and by a few other names. If you were using any other browser besides google chrome you would do a google search and when you clicked on the link it would take you to some totally unrelated site. Did it on IE and even on Firefox. I am almost convinced that somebody at google created it. The virus came out not long after google chrome was created. That virus is damn near impossible to get rid of.

Something happened on Ustream this morning. Malware warnings were everywhere. Ustream is aware of the problem and has been working to fix it. I don't know what happened and won't speculate. I'm still using Ustream. Better not to transmit sensitive info though.
I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.

It was simply reported as suspicious to Google Safe Browsing. It should be fine now. Go here to check:

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diag ... ustream.tv

There is no malware being served by Ustream and this is not a redirect.
