Twitpic is one of the most popular site for sharing photos and videos on Twitter. The service has been around for a while and is used by a sizeable audience. However, Google Chrome has apparently detected that Twitpic poses malware risk and has started blocking it.


Twitpic

The website is currently listed as ‘malicious’ on Google’s Safe Browsing Diagnostics page. The listing for the website reads thus, “Site is listed as suspicious – visiting this web site may harm your computer. Of the 12029 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-12-30, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.”

Twitpic has been quick to state that Twitpic does not promote any such activities which may be a threat to its users. The service has dished out a brief official statement which reads, “Working to fix the google chrome malware notice when visiting Twitpic.com as this is not true or the case, trying to contact google”

Apparently, Google Chrome’s security alarm has triggered simply because someone with nefarious intents loaded malicious code onto the Twitpic website. That may have caused Chrome to block the page.

Google has resounded similar sentiments in its report, “No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days. In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.”

In light of this, we do hope that Twitpic would soon be unblocked and become accessible through Google Chrome.
