Hi, all of a sudden all downloads from file hosting site are getting blocked as "may contain virus or spyware" regardless of file type. The download gets to the very end before displaying error. Can some one please look into this? Thanks

    This isn't coming from us, that's because the site ended up on Google's malware list:

    Depending on the type of error, there may be a link on the warning page that allows you download the file regardless.

    If you believe this is in error, you can temporarily turn off malware protection by going to Preferences, Security, and unchecking "Block reported attack sites" and/or "Block reported web forgeries." We don't recommend doing this unless you have to, and obviously it is not a supported configuration.
