To Whom To Believe: Google Or McAfee?

I use McAfee suite on one of my computers. It has McAfee Site Advisor which should help with knowing which Web sites are safe and which are risky or dangerous. Today (April 2, 2009) I was surprised that McAfee warned me in attempt to access some of Google’s services with red mark and message:

74.125.77.132 may try to steal your information.

Why were you redirected to this page? When we visited this site, we found it may be designed to trick you into submitting your financial or personal information to online scammers. This is a serious security threat which could lead to identity theft, financial losses or other dissemination of personal information.

I checked and found that this IP address belongs to Google.
