    Strange, today while researching various cases I made an attempt to visit the Lian-Li website
    and was informed that it has been blocked by google (and mozilla firefox) for deploying malicious software.

    Here is an image of the report.

    Can anyone offer a more detailed explanation / speculation regarding this?

    That's odd. "20 pages resulted in malicious software being downloaded" and "No, this site has not hosted malicious software in the last 90 days."

    Looking at their explanation, "In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message." I wonder if it's infected ads or forum postings (if they host a forum).

    I believe lian-li's site was hijacked a few ago temporarily, that might be why that warning is/was there? That wouldn't explain the info about it being in the last couple of days though...

    Ah, that may be why. Maybe it just took them awhile to get things cleaned back up. I checked their site today and it no longer sets off any warnings.

    When did Google become the net cops?

    They didn't become net cops, but around a year and a half ago, through Google Labs, they released Googles Safe Browsing API.
