I noticed that On 16 October 2016, Virus total showed 1/68 malicious test: Quttera had at some point found 2 blacklisted links https://1drv.ms/u/s!apeaqvkh2n2egka4l93svfkgfjl3s and https://1drv.ms/u/s!apeaqvkh2n2egksgeounzk6qyug2 which quttera, phishtank and succurri say are still /potentially malicious

Hi Hotdoge3, thanks for bringing these to my attention. The "malware" that is claimed by Quttera is none. The service found a link to the popular sandboxing program Sandboxie on my website and -- for reasons unknown to me -- flagged Sandboxie's website and thus the link pointing to it as malicious. This is a false positive and I have contacted the service to resolve the issue. The second issue that you found, that Scumware flagged a single file on the site as problematic, is another false positive. The file is clean which you can check on Virustotal for instance (it is flagged by five of the 50 or so antivirus engines, but those are false positives).
Good, informative Tech Blog site, always interesting. Relies on ads for finance. A trusted site.
