Hi

In the last few days I have been unable to go from a google search to the tinycore site.

So if I search google for microcore and want to jump to the site:
https://www.google.dk/interstitial?url=http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/

Then I'm intercepted at a google site stating that it contains Trojan worms and malware - see this page:

I saw that too.

I usually connect to the website with Firefox from my Tiny Core setup (which presumably isn't a big target for malware) but I've also connected with Chrome and IE from Windows boxes and AFAIK haven't had any problems.

That is a mirror of the tinycore site...

I had noticed same issue yesterday with google searches related to ibiblio.org but totally unrelated to tinycore.

I found this problem, too.
Only Google Search via   distro.ibiblio.org  reported this problem.

However,  http://www.tinycorelinux.net/  always was working perfectly,

I downloaded tinycore-4.7.7 with ubuntu for test and compared their md5sum with older downloads and it seemed ok.
TinyCore, SliTaz, LinuxMint, Tails, Mac ...

I was also not able to either Login or Open tinycorelinux.net from my any of the browsers. The error message - "your IP addrs is blocked due to spam protection...or something like that.." and asking for entering some Key shown on the error page.
I thought it was some problem from namesrver side blocking. But was able to view forum messages , thru Google searches. Wiered, but then after some months, every-thing was fine. Still wondering, what was the problem ?

The issue of ibiblio.org is unrelated to tinycorelinux.net.
