Google has changed the way they handle warning searchers of sites that may contain malware on them.

Great, but difficult. It my hurt some small companies if it requires digitally signed software on these download pages.
It is more difficult than deleting spam pages from the SERP's.
Example: With default options installed on IE 6.x this Norwegian page (http://www.dinspillside.no/)(with a picture of my daughter's son Mathias) gave a warning when you tried to download the chess (sjakk)program. It is compiled with Borland C++ builder about 10 years ago. Internet Explorer 7.0 downloads the files without warning.
This is not easy. May be the final solution is to digiatally sign all downloadable programs in one or another way. It will favour large companies with resources and it will be a disaster for scammers / spammers.
Great Google. Can we aplaude, excellent Google?
