    I had my site hosted on fastnet (UK) before it was launched and after the transfer was done, my visitors were getting warning that there is malicious content on the site! It was a corporate site and absolutely no malicious content was there. The only thing I?ve found is some images still hosted on fastenet instead of my site. Can this cause the problem? Many thanks for your help!

    I'd verify the theme you chose, and any plugins if this is a CMS based site like Wordpress or such.

    Hotlinking an image shouldn't produce a malicious content\malware warning.

    Dienummer,

    Have you tried (or have you already) submitted your site to Google Webmaster Tools? Usually they can tell you if there is malware on the site. Otherwise you might want to scan the site with security software or have a professional take a look at it. Sounds like there may be a malicious program running. I would also reach out to the hosting provider to see if they know anything.

    If all those avenues fail, check things that you recently installed like third party applications, plugins, widgets or things like that to see if they are giving the warnings.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn
