The Google Security Blog reported that Malware is a growing issue as a single malware source has infected 60,000+ hosts. While there will be no page rank effect it will effect site traffic as your website will show up with "This Site May Harm Your Computer" tags in the google search listing. Since 2005, Google has been sending e-mails to webmasters of infected sites, informing them that they are in violation of Google Webmaster Guidelines. Removing malware from a site is doable but getting the tag in the google search is not as easy or fast. Can anyone speak to this.

You will need to remove the malware and request for a re-consideration. This can be done using the Google Webmaster Tool.

That's true... Your information is correct ... Google is showing a warning in RED color when someone is trying to browse your website.

You need to find out the malware (which is usually a javascript, SQL Injection kind of malware), remove it and request for reconsideration at stopbadware.org.

Mostly the tag is removed withing a week.

And it is the week lag time in getting the tag removed that is the issue. This might be an area where stopbadware.org and Google should work together to cut this time down to 24 or 48 hours at the most. One week of potential visitors seeing that tag could be a major hit. Not to mention anyother alerts that could be generated by firewalls and anti-malware software that people use on their own computers, which is could be even more of a PR nightmare.
