Torrent Site Demonoid Blocked by Google

Google is warning users of its search engine that if they visit file sharing website Demonoid, they could find malicious software being downloaded and installed on their computers.

Anyone searching for the site, which relaunched earlier this year after a lengthy period offline, sees a message warning that "This site may harm your computer".

If they decide to click through, they are taken to a Google "Malware Warning" page rather than the website, suggesting that they return to Google and pick another search result, or continue at their own risk. The page also points to a diagnostic report explaining why Demonoid has been blocked.


Google said, “Of the 75 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 4 pages resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed user consent.”

The ban has now been lifted. In a statement, the site said, “We run content from a lot of ad networks in our ad banners, and a lot of banners from each. One of those banners started serving malware, so we disabled all ads until we are 100% sure of the culprit and get it removed. We are also taking the proper steps to get us out of all the blacklists.”

Demonoid described as a “vacation”, the site is now back online. The site said, “Sorry for the hassle. One of those banners started serving malware, so we disabled all ads until we are 100% sure of the culprit and get it removed. We are also taking the proper steps to get us out of all the blacklists.”
