Google Blacklists The National’s Website
This must be a first in the history of PNG cyberspace: Google has effectively blacklisted The National Newspaper. It’s true. Like most other days when I’ve got some free time I usually check up on our two dailies. However, when I visited The National today, I was greeted with the above Google-generated warning.
Clicking on the button, “Why was this site blocked?”, the following explanation appears (click to enlarge):
It seems that The National’s website is hosting malicious software which is affecting user’s pcs. And it’s not your average trojan horse. Google describes the malicious software it discovered as including 369 scripting exploit(s) and 148 trojan(s).
148 trojans?! Come on The National, you’re supposed to be “PNG’s nambawan daily”, not PNG’s nambawan trojan carrier!
