After listening to a recent episode of the Data Security Podcast, I was intrigued with Comodo’s free VPN product. I went to www.comodo.com to see what it was about, and then clicked the link on their front page to “Learn More” about their EasyVPN product.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this:
Aha! A clue. “Advisory provided by Google Desktop.” I see. It turns out that Google apparently thinks Comodo’s EasyVPN landing page is bad. I wonder if this is related to Google’s outage a few weeks back, when every page returned in a search result was marked as malware. Clicking the “Why was this site blocked?” button in Firefox yielded a similar page with more detail.
So, who do I trust? Is Comodo up to no good, or is Google just really Goofle again today?
UPDATE: Comodo send me a direct message via Twitter just now (the morning of 20090225), saying they’ve fixed the problem and that the warning will soon be removed. As of now, it’s still there.
UPDATE: Comodo has fixed the problem, as was reported on the Data Security Podcast this week.
