The web says among others:

The idea, according to Google, is to block any of these files when the
download takes place via an HTTP connection, even if the site the user
is downloading the data from is loaded via secure HTTPS.

Thus if I understand it well, links to such files _will_ be a problem.
Anyway, such blocking is IMHO nonsense. It will block real malware for
a few days, maybe even just for a few hours because setting HTTPS on a
malware server is very easy.
