Is a harmful website ?


I am using 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 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,

    Spoken to support, they seem to think this may be a false positive.

    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.

    Options has been verified to be clean and the appropriate rating is now updated in F-Secure Browsing Protection. The search results produced by should appear correctly from now on.
    This was a false positive case.
