Google Flags Ustream.tv as Malware; Should it Be Allowed to?
What if one of your biggest competitors was given authority to label your business as legit or harmful? Would that be fair?
Well, I just tried to visit ustream.tv–the popular live streaming video site–and was greeted with this warning:
Now, I am a conspiracy theorist through and through, so immediately I start making the connection that YouTube is somewhat of a rival to Ustream.tv and that this just doesn’t smell right.
Does anyone have any deeper insight as to what is going on here? Surely if Ustream.tv can host malware, then YouTube can too. Judging by the warning above, it doesn’t appear that Google has even found any recent malware, so it looks even more suspicious.
Chime in if you have anything to add, while I go back to my tinfoil hat.
P.S. I originally discovered this issue while trying to visit a site that had a ustream.tv video embeded on it. Suffice to say, if this is not fixed quickly, ANY site with ustream content will be flagged as suspicious for malware!
