It seem that Google and Fixfox  flags Bit.ly website and the links of it. While Bit.ly links are working fine on Safari and Internet Explorer, the problem was initially limited to Mozilla’s Firefox and Google Chrome, though Firefox now seems to be working fine for us.

Google itself states:

“Site [Bit.ly] is listed as suspicious – visiting this web site may harm your computer. Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 31 time(s) over the past 90 days.”

Google adds that from the 91,854 pages it tested on the site in the past three months, “669 pages resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.” This included 200 trojans, 185 exploits and 152 scripting exploits.

There is no news yet from the Bit.ly blog or from there Twitter page
Lets hope that this problem gets solved soon
Keep following we will be updating the news
