    Google have designated the 'Ubuntu Tweak' site as one that may harm your computer.

    Many Ubuntu users have adopted this piece of software for making changes to the Ubuntu desktop.

    I wonder has the site been hacked?

    The software itself has been around for a year or so and is unlikely to be malicious...well, at least I hope so.

    Has anyone else heard anything about this?

    Looks like a blog-style site. Could it be there is unmoderated commments that point to malicious sites?

    Hello,
    Nothing special that I've noticed. But why do you need it?
    You can tweak anything you want without any special help.

    Strictly speaking, I don't need it. Linux is so tweakable that some restraint is necessary as I've found out to my cost in the past.:D
    Really, the only feature that I need is the one in Desktop/Gnome/Complete lockdown of the Panel.

    It's easy to delete a panel if one is not paying attention and sometimes the panel items move about during reboots.

    The scripts for Nautilus handy too but I can get those else where.

    I doubt I'd take that seriously except if there are links on the site to other harmful sites. But if running Linux, pretty much nothing can touch you anway, so there's no worries there. Win is another story of course...
