Google Chrome Temporarily Blocks Twitpic Over Malicious Malware Threat

Google has blocked millions of Twitter accounts, saying that the micro blogging site’s picture sharing service, Twitpic, is a ‘malicious threat’ to computers.

Google’s malware inspector on Sunday has for some reason detected as a threat. As a result, if user trying to access the site from using any browser link, user will get a malware notice. In addition, if user uses Google Chrome, pages as well as Twitter pages that rely on the service will result in a blocking prompt as well.

The Internet search massive blocked access to Twitpic and any photos hosted by it from its popular browser Chrome as well as from search results in other browsers, portrait millions of Twitter accounts unreachable for several hours.

It is undecided whether Twitpic posed a reasonable security threat to users, or if the block resulted from a glitch in Google’s malware detector.

Earlier this morning Google's diagnostic page results for described the site as "suspicious", but also showed tests exposed no malicious software or "suspicious content".
