Chrome And Firefox Marks Bit.ly Links As Malware


Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox has marked the bit.ly links as malware. Any Chrome or Firefox user who tries to access bit.ly links will see the following message:


Google states : "We tested on the site over the past 90 days, 669 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent."

"Malicious software includes 200 trojans, 185 exploits, 152 scripting exploits. Successful infection resulted in an average of 3 new processes on the target machine."

Bit.ly is not hosting any malwares on thier servers. But some customers are using the bit.ly to cover their malicious website links.
