Well, they are.
Funnily enough, it isn’t just Google. Malwarebytes have been flagging a lot of known good websites and CDNs as malware recently. I wonder what the cause is. Heuristics gone haywire, maybe?
Malwarebytes give a lot of false positives, it is valid as complement to eliminate some PUPs and adware but even for this the Panda Cloud Cleaner is a better choice, Panda also is better as AV in Windows, if you don’t want the Defender, which is also very good novadays.
Ok, well seen Google and YouTube, some spyware have XD
One could just read Google’s TOS to consider their services as malware. Blocking Google domains makes sense for a software pretending to protect you against adware and spyware.
