Repl.it: deceptive site ahead?

URGENT! URGENT! URGENT! URGENT! URGENT! URGENT!
I tried going to the site where one of my sites was hosted in the Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers. ( https://netos.ebp11.repl.co ) When it did, I got this message:

When I went to edit the site, the editor URL was described by Chrome as dangerous.

The editor isn't blocked. The <iframe> where the Run button completes its task shows Dangerous in a new tab as well. However, when I was writing this post, the page showed secure.

Any ideas? Is there a new security hole in Repl.it? Or is Google incorrectly diagnosing the website? Does the code ( https://replit.com/@ebp11/NetOS#index.html ) hiddenly link to any scripts that are malicious? Do I have a virus or trojan horse or worm or something on my chromebook? If so, how do I scan it?

Replit hosts projects for anyone. So, logically, there is always a chance that someone hosts some malware on replit (I host a small userscript that is an example of a keystroke logger, but it hashes the contents before being stored, and you can choose not to download it, nor do I excessively encourage anyone so it isn't technically malware).

Also, your site mimics "installation" of an os, which is a bit suspicious to chrome considering that your website isn't well-known.

It works fine for me, but just remember that the chrome malware warning message will probably pop up for some websites that have similar "features" to your website.

AFAIK, the most you can do is report it to google.
