This was reported on the qgis lists 
I tried to do some further digging for QGIS, and (because I have
godaddy/DNS access for qgis.org) registred:
the sent you to this page:
and only show use the msg above. There is also the possibillity to get
sample url's for the malicious pages, but for what I tried all these
lists are emtpy!
There is the possibility to do a 'malware review request' which I did
just 6 hours ago, and now I receive the message:
"Google has received and processed your malware review request.
Unfortunately, http://www.qgis.org/ appears to be still infected with
malware that can harm visitors. Google will continue to display a
warning whenever a user clicks a link to your site from our search results."
BUT again: NO url's or further info :-(
@markus were you able to find another osgeo-url which gave this msg?
I'm not sure what Google meant by 'infected networks', we probably all
have the same network ranges...???
But as a sidenote: Nyall also noted that dash had the same msg 
Anyway, if somebody has further info, please let us know.
