Yesterday I logged into Search Console to find this message:
These urls host malware or unwanted software downloads
Affected URLs: N/A
As a seller of downloadable software this was a bit disconcerting.
I simply requested a review, saying I don’t distribute malware, my code is codesigned etc and today I got the “all clear”.
However they did include more explanatory information. I’m a bit worried it might happen again, but here’s what they linked to:
The odd thing is they didn’t notify me of this, like they do for mobile usability and Core Web Vitals errors… I had to log in to see it.
So if you sell downloadable software, check Search Console!
