    The Wordfence security plugin is showing me the same message. The issue is not in the WordPress site or the Contact Form 7 plugin; it’s simply that Contact Form 7’s Readme contains a URL that Google has flagged as a malware site. Here are the details from Wordfence:

    File contains suspected malware URL: /home2/optimwis/public_html/globalpartssource/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/readme.txt
    Filename: wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/readme.txt
    Bad URL: http://www.t r a

    Google does show “This site may harm your computer.” below http://ww w. t r a n s l a t o n l i

    Thank you for reporting this. I just emailed to the owner of the problematic site (Armenian translator). Hopefully he can fix it soon.


    Please let me know when or how it will be fixed.

    I don’t know as I’m not the owner of the site.

    Look at the spelling… I believe that the site is misspelled. There’s no “I” before the “o” and after the “t”.

    This problem has been resolved. The site is safe now.
