I have a site where people can upload files easily to send over email/etc. There is quite a bit of volume in terms of uploaded files and files expire automatically after a few days so usually it is not an issue.
A few days ago however, someone uploaded a file named "Crossfire2.0 New Cheat Update2019-2020.exe" (sha256:a31850c1eeb5e606a9b4c2fac56a723661178946bffed3fa7ab2051b60a3349c) which Google found to be harmful, and blocked the whole site from Google Chrome:
My question is: is there a way to tell Google to not block the whole site and let us know if this happens? There's a reporting system on the site and I'd be happy to provide Google an API to report harmful files so the team here can review these. Unilaterally blocking the whole site on Chrome, which is the top browser at least for our user base, is an issue. If it can't be helped then it's fine for Google to block the single problematic page.
Please can we avoid blocking the whole site when only one page is involved for file hosting sites?
