This is a website that a friend of mine works on: url deleted for safety concerns and in the last few weeks, Google is labelling it as being harmful with this warning:
This site may harm your computer
It is a small site with no much on it, and I am trying to help my friend find out why they would think the website is not safe? I don't have access to their FTP to know what files they have, but I do know they have some .JS files.
What else could give this warning?
thanks a lot

does the website use any kind of form input, querystings or connect to a database without sanatizing the data first?
if the answer is yes then most likely your site has been compromised, if the answer is no then it is the whole shared host machine i expect.
Have your friend contact the host and have them check the site and clean it if necessary.
Might not necessarily be the case here, but many attacks the past year or so have come from keyloggers on local machines, especially the iframe injections. Have your friend do a deep anti-virus scrub and also a deep cleaning with something like malwarebytes.
