Thank you for your report.

We can assure you we have already reviewed the security of the site and it is not compromised. The Google block appears to be due to one or more Google-supplied advertisements that have misleading buttons to "Download now" as if they were a button to download Audacity.

We have blocked all misleading advertisements and made some other changes and are awaiting Google's response.
