Is it false alarm from my Eset Smart Security that a website contains a Trojan Downloader?

Is it false alarm from my Eset Smart Security that a website contains a Trojan Downloader?

Yesterday when I navigated to this website, I was alarmed by my AV-software (Eset Smart Security) that the website contained a Trojan Downloader:

www.maxsuntranslation.com

When I searched google for "maxsun translation" I received the notification that "This site might harm your computer".

Is this just false alarm? This website is owned by a translation agency in Shenzhen and Hong Kong in south China.

How can I now if it's false alarm or not? I have to be on the safe side and rely on what my AV is warning me for.

Both Kaspersky and Chrome are telling me that site contains malware, so I would guess ESET is also telling the truth.

I think you should believe your AV-software and Google.  That's what they are there for.

There is no way to know.  The owners of the website could have done it, someone could have broken in to the server and done it, they may have a database that was vulnerable and was broken into.
