yes, seeing the same on our site: http://bitcoin.lift-institute.com/lottery/

really annoying! first google shuts down our AdSense account, now it blocks the Site due to a CoinURL-Ad... does anyone know if the Malware Alert is Legit?! Or maybe its just Google taking action against Bitcoin and AdSense competitors?!

LIFT loves you!

I had to remove CoinURL ads too, as I feared not only the effects of the bad impression new users would get of my website, but also any degradation of its position in terms of search ranks.

I think I saw someone say Firefox was blocking it too but that doesn't seem to be the case here. Right now it seems only Google and one or other blacklist is listing coinurl.com, but I get the impression these lists "learn" with each other.

Hm... does coinurl actually contain malware, or is this an unethical business practice by google ? The ads sported by coinurl looks much like google adsense ads, but if Google is using their power to give warnings to all users on any site incorporating coinurl, that's really really bad, and evil.

I would think that could even be grounds for a lawsuit, if it's not really malware, but malicious blocking.

The site is now also blocked in firefox, with some more info here:
http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?hl=en-US&site=http://coinurl.com/

So, legit malware ?

for firefox too... had to remove coinurl from my sites. I think there is one malicious site in the ad system, that's why gugl blocked it.

Sorry guys!  I was approving ads last night and someone must have hidden malware on a page (or added it afterwards).  It has been removed, the domain is under review again by Google, this will be sorted out by the end of the day.  Please don't abandon ship, this is bound to happen when we have millions (!!) of links being shortened and ads going through, it's just the nature of the beast.

There is more attention towards CoinURL than ever before.  I just hired another full time staffer to help out.  Far from abandoned!

*facepalm* omg I didn't realize how this is actually a brick wall of notification on EVERY site with a CoinURL ad...   oooooh dear I'm glad we've done everything we can on our end and waiting for Google now.

I'm going to do a promotion to make this up to you guys.

My experience with getting out of Google's blacklist is bad (back when I had to use free domains, this was oh-so-frequent), with it taking sometimes a week. Fortunately my sites had nowhere the traffic of CoinURL, and well, you get what you pay for.

You should also contact Mozilla.

They said a couple of hours for review so hopefully this is sorted out sooner than later!

I just tried from 4 different systems, including one that was a fresh install that had never had firefox opened before and it loaded the page without warning!

Looks like it's just chrome now. Mozilla has cleared things up, yet chrome is still spewing out malware warnings all over my Litecoin block explorer because of my coinurl ad http://explorer.litecoin.net
