I am using duckduckgo.com as my default search engine and whenever I click on any links from a duckduckgo search F-Secure Internet Security 2013 issues an alert saying that duckduckgo.com is a harmful site and not to visit the site.
Is duckduckgo actually harmful or is this a false positive message ?
thanks for your help,

I would very much like a more definite answer to this question as DDG is my main search engine. Is there a problem with DDG or is the problem with F-secure? This could do a lot of harm to DDG's reputation if it is not solved quickly. Thank you.

Indeed Victor is right, it is a false positive. Our Malware team has verified that Duckduckgo.com is harmless and we have updated the cloud. The search results produced by duckduckgo.com should appear correctly from now on.
