Alternative media websites under attack?

I noticed when I was going to go to KWN today, a sign popped up saying 'this site can harm your computer'

Cyber malware attacks targeting alternative news sites such as SGTReport and BeforeItsNews have spread to KWN today, with multiple reports that visiting the KWN website has resulted in the user’s system immediately receiving a trojan virus resulting in Blue Screen of Death.
It appears that sites linking into KWN are also being targeted/ black flagged by search engines. We encourage our readers to avoid visiting KWN or linking their site until their systems have been restored.
Has Obama’s new Cyber security team been getting to work shutting down the alternative media?

odd.. I actually had one of those alerts pop up on a mining site earlier today.

Previously, I had never had that happen before.

Yeah I also saw one last week on an emergency food storage website.
That one seems to be fixed now though.

Hmmmmm

Sometimes that can mean the site has some aggressive advertising that wants to shift the page to their page. I find those full page "Your site will load in 29.....28..." to be very annoying. In fact, most of the time I will click away from them.

I for one really hope this isn't the beginning of a process towards war with China. I really do not wish to live through the next world war. Then again, the last time we had a currency war it turned into a world war....

I was getting the same warning on mises.org a couple weeks ago. I reported the problem, and they fixed it.
