Microsoft's Live Search has now announced that they will now take action against the sites which they deem questionable in terms of malware. As a result, the main link has been disabled and the visitors can only visit the site in question by clicking a special link in the warning box.

“Live Search is proud to announce that starting today we are taking action against this plague. As Live Search crawls the web, we assess whether a page contains any malicious elements or exhibits any malicious behavior, and then flag questionable pages with a warning message.”

If you find that your site has been flagged, then you can solve the problem and get back to the track by using Live Search's webmaster tools.

Here's a screenshot of what a warning would look like:
