    Posted an article on my blog this AM. This afternoon, when using the Google Chrome Browser I am receiving the following warning… Working fine in the other browsers (Firefox, IE, Opera):

    Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer!
    The website at whatsonmypc.wordpress.com contains elements from the site http://www.thejakartaglobe.com, which appears to host malware – software that can hurt your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Just visiting a site that contains malware can infect your computer.
    For detailed information about the problems with these elements, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for http://www.thejakartaglobe.com.

    The blog I need help with is whatsonmypc.wordpress.com.

    I’m sorry but WordPress.com does not have any control over how Google and Chrome display their security warnings.
    I think the message will go away if you remove the image from thejakartaglobe.com.

    You can find out more by visiting this page:

    Just to follow up: The warning whatsonmypc was seeing was because of an image on their blog that pointed to a http://www.thejakartaglobe.com image URL. Once the image to the blocked site was removed, the warning went away from their blog.

    If you see a similar warning on your blog, make sure to check the image URLs you are using to make sure none of them are blocked.
