    Hi,

    every time i look for the "phpbb" keyword using the integrated Google search box in Firefox 1.5 i see a Google virus warning (see screenshot)

    first time it happened me was looking for "phpbb attachment mod". so i try different keyword and now i notice the message appears when i look for 'phpbb' plus any other keyword. o_O

    This no occurs when i go directly to google.com and make the search.

    ...uhmm... have to do a complete virus scan. but i did one some few days a go with: nod32, ewido, a2...SB, adware.... and online scan .... what else? no virus found.

    have you see this message?

    yap, got the warning as well and no viruses here either.

    on further testing, it appears that any keyword(s) containing "php" will generate that warning.

    php works. bb works. phpbb does not.
    You can fix it by not using the built-in google search in your browser.

    Oh nevermind, you already figured that out I see :D

    This happenned to me yesterday, for any word searching, but only when I use the Tor software.
    So I use the word search through torified Firefox, I got the virus/spyware warning; Then use the same word search with FF directly connected to internet, I got the search result and no virus/spyware warning.

    This happens for the search string "mysql php" thru Internet explorer 6. The first page loads but the subsequent pages throws the virus warnings.
