    I was testing my connection speed with SpeedTest.net, and as soon as I selected the nearest server (Seoul in my case) I was alerted by Chrome that the connection is infected:

    http://www.speedtest.net/ (going to this site is fine, connecting to the server in Seoul might be dangerous). I don't want to investigate any further.

    See pic Google information

    a) did try to download on 31-7-2009 once (possibly due to a google web crawler agent visit)
    b) did not act as passing station
    c) did not host malware

    It is normal for a site testing your download speed to download something?

    Possibly because South Korea is so close to North Korea, plus some links to a Russian site, therefore it got some extra minus points in the analysis and the download speed check made it flagged.

    I have been testing my connection speed at least once a month (with the same server) over the last year and Chrome has never complained. I was wondering whether other people registered something similar. I live in Seoul, and most people here believe North Korea has no official internet network (in terms of public access anyway).
