Sourceforge pidgin download page blocked by google chrome as malicious

Tried to get pidgin-2.10.11 for windows from, and after the 5
second delay on sourceforge, was greeted by a red page in chrome, saying
the site was blacklisted. I downloaded the file anyway and chrome deleted
it after the download completed, calling the .exe 'malicious' as well.

Virustotal says the file is clean (
), maybe someone at google should be politely asked to drop
from their blacklist ?
