Google Malware Alert – I am safe, are you?

As state by Google’s security engineer Damian Menscher in Google’s official blog 

Today is like any other and you open the google search page. And if you see the alert message on it. It means that your computer is affected with malware. Google has noticed that this malware is redirecting unual traffic to its servers. G worked with several companies and its security engineers to figure out why this traffic being sent. Later it came to a conclusion that it is because of the malware. “As a result of this discovery, today some people will see a prominent notification at the top of their Google web search results:”

“This particular malware causes infected computers to send traffic to Google through a small number of intermediary servers called “proxies.” We hope that by taking steps to notify users whose traffic is coming through these proxies, we can help them update their antivirus software and remove the infections”.
