Is this Paypal Github SDK reference really a dangerous site?

No, it's not dangerous at all. Your browser is warning you because a non-Paypal website has Paypal in its name. This is a common technique used by phishing sites that attempt to fool you into thinking the site is official. For example, a website might be called and made to look like the official site, enticing you to trust it and input your sensitive credentials. The browser has no way of knowing that the site you are visiting has Paypal in its name for completely benign reasons.

This is a typical false positive. Since Firefox is using Google safe browsing API, it will show similar warning as in Chrome browser. Since some antivirus also use the API, it will be warned by those antivirus as well.

Here is the Google safe browsing transparency report. Somebody needs to file an incorrect phishing warning to google to remove the incorrect warning.

For antivirus/security services, the false positive problem can be cascaded by Google safe browsing and each other's detection algorithm. If you put the URL into virustotal, you will see a possible detection compound problem, e.g. A see B,C,D services detect the URL, so it also assume the URL is bad.
