TwitPic, a Twitter picture sharing app, was recently labeled as maleware by Google Chrome. The Google block affects both users and non-users of the app alike as pictures uploaded to Twitter with the app simply yield a foreboding red screen instead. Chrome also displays a warning screen when accessing the site from it’s regular browser.
TwitPic first acknowledged the issue in a tweet around before 10 a.m. PST, and as of 4:48 p.m. PST stated that they had audited TwitPic users and removed any offending accounts.
No word yet on how long the malware blockage will continue after said audit.
At approximately 17:30 PST TwitPic posted the following:
Additional tweets suggested clearing the Google Chrome Cache if problems continue.
