I thought that goo.gl is google's version of tinyurl.com So guessing that it is warning you that the redirected website has malware on it.

The redirect site was actually Feedburner, Google's own RSS consolidation/management service. Makes it even funnier.

The way their algorithms work, *any* site that someone uses a goo.gl URL to redirect to that contains malware could potentially flag the whole goo.gl domain... you'd think they'd have thought of that one ;)
