#fail – Malware in asiaone.com

Here’s an interesting finding. As I was looking up for a piece of news in Singapore, Google returned the following results, take a look at the 4th one that leads to asiaone.com, notice the text that says: “This site may harm your computer”.

Intrigued, I clicked on the link just to see what might happen. As expected, I got the further warning from Google.

It looked to me Google was very serious with it’s warning. However, as a very inquisitive person, I went ahead and entered the web page link directly into the address bar of my browser. And this is what I got:

I had to tick the “I understand that visiting this site may harm my computer” checkbox in order to reach the web page. Anyway, while I was there, I did not really spend time looking around to find what might be considered as malware to Google, but this goes to show — a giant website like asiaone.com, possibly built by a truck load of computer science or IT experts which cost them hundreds of thousand dollars, would still give you shit like this.

Footnote: I was using Google Chrome. I haven’t tried this with other browsers, why don’t you give it a shot?
