"Reported Unwanted Software Page!" - Firefox & Chrome Blocking Pirate Sites!!!

Post by Sim Architect on Sat 10 Oct 2015, 10:51

Can you believe that this is happening when I try to open KickAss Torrents page??? Will we have to use alternative browsers and, who knows, maybe even operating systems as well???

Hello,

Yes, I found out the same yesterday. Clicking the "Ignore this warning" button even redirected me to the same page. WhatDidUJustCallMe?
Chrome did work fine for me though. (And allows me to bypass the block)

The fact that it is blocked by two major browsers, doesn't necessarily mean that you need to start looking for a new website. Razz

Interesting. Just clicking 'Ignore this warning' on Firefox was enough for me, and it doesn't appear even after revisiting the page.

The warning just appears because of ads on the page that redirect to malware-ridden sites. As if just putting a warning that only appears once would be enough to 'block' a page, there's no need to jump the gun over here. It already happened for a little while earlier this year, and it got resolved in a few days.

Surely they would have more effective ways to 'block' a website if they so desired.

Thanks! Yes, I clicked that "ignore" link and opened the website (I have to do it everytime I start browsing there), but I was wondering how far will they go in this "anti piracy" war... Sad


Besides that, all good for now!

Little update, the block was removed quickly after the malicious ad was removed from the website.
