4shared.com reported as malware site by google chrome
I thought of searching for a file in the 4shared.com and planned to do a search in the website. I have normally logged into to the website and done a file search, since 4shared offered free cloud storage services and also paid storage services, we can able to get the public files which the users have shared. We can also download those files which was publically shared by the users and i have also planned to download a file like that.
But after going to the search window in the 4shared.com website in Google chrome, what i found is Google chrome was showing the 4shared.com search website as a malware site and asking to return back in order to maintain our security. The page which i have got is displayed below.
You can check for the address tab, after seeing this i was really shocked. Before two days only i have downloaded a file from that same 4shared.com website but today it was showing as a malware site. Anyway after seeing this i tried to get through the security notice and tried to proceed and found that that web link was asking for some suspicious downloads and a pop up is coming every time when i tried to proceed.
I have also manually done a file search and tried to download a file which was publically shared by the users and while i was trying to access the site for download it was still showing the same security issue and reporting it as a malware.
Still i had some doubt that may my computer has affected with some malicious malware and tried to access other free cloud storage provider but other websites are working fine without any issue and i have also checked my antivirus and internet security and found that it was up to date.
So guys try to be cautious before using the 4shared.com website and avoid using the website till this issue was cleared by them.
