    KickassTorrents Blocked Again Over “Harmful Programs”

    KickassTorrents Blocked Again Over “Harmful Programs”




    KickassTorrents is continuing to have problems with Google's unwanted software policy. After the site resolved an earlier problem with a bad advertiser, Firefox and Chrome users are again barred from accessing the popular torrent index. Instead, they see an ominous warning screen.

    Starting a few hours ago Chrome and Firefox began blocking user access to KickassTorrents (KAT) again.

    Google’s safebrowsing algorithm flagged the website under its ‘unwanted software’ program, which is often triggered by malicious third-party advertising.

    Instead of the usual homepage, visitors now see an ominous red warning banner when they enter Kat.cr into their browsers.

    “The site ahead contains harmful programs,” Google Chrome informs its users.

    “Attackers on kat.cr might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit),” the warning adds.

    Mozilla’s Firefox browser displays a similar message

    Google previously said that the “unwanted software” policy applies to all websites but added that torrent sites are common targets for ‘unwanted software’ distributors.

    The company further stressed that the warnings will automatically disappear when the flagged sites no longer violate Google’s policy.

    According to Kat.cr’s safebrowsing page “attackers” might use the torrent site to trick visitors into installing programs that harm their browsing experience. In addition, KAT is believed to link to “dangerous websites.”
