"Malicious file" warning: an issue from Chrome itself

If you downloaded Cubik with the Chrome (Chrome17 or higher), you've probably seen it saying Cubik is a Malicious file.

Sadly, this seems to be an issue from Chrome itself.

If you are interested and/or want to know more about this issue, I encourage you to read the following thread:

Many more threads like that exist and no solution have been answered yet from Google.
That "Malicious check" from Chrome is a nice idea but is not done correctly currently... And that make small publishers annoyed by this false positive warning, like BDcraft.net.

Please note:
BDcraft.net is a safe website and you can check that here: And - by the way - Cubik is a software which is now used by thousands of users (Cubik LITE + Cubik PRO) and nobody reported any bad thing about it (except some bugs ^^).
