Post Why is Stashbox identified as a threat by Norton Internet Security.

http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=stashbox.org

Assuming that this is a false detection but the possibility exists that the site was infiltrated by hackers and malicious code was placed there. Either way if anyone can comment and shed light on this that would be helpful.

People have used stashbox to store some naughty virus-laden files. We delete those when we see them or get complaints, but apparently some have been missed and then flagged by Norton =/

Thank you Dan for the logical and thoughtful explanation. That all makes sense.
