Malware Attacks Hits King World News

by SGT,

Earlier this week Before Its News, SGT Report, ZD Net, CNET and InstaPundit were interrupted by malware hack attacks.

Today it appears to be the popular precious metals blog King World News’ turn.

As of 8:30 am central time, when using GOOGLE as the search engine, this malware warning screen is what you get when you try to visit King World News.com:

Remember that according to The New York Times, the Obama Administration has concluded that the President has the authority to launch preemptive cyber attacks.

The Progressive sums up the danger this way:

There are no checks or balances when the President, alone, decides when to engage in an act of war. And this new aggressive stance will lead to a cyber arms race.

Are we witnessing the Obama Administration’s cyber warriors in action domestically?

    F u Obama & company! You will not stop the awakening no matter what you do! You are not God!

  • harman kardon

    I am so sick of these criminals a-holes running the show and disrupting our lives and stealing from us and our children. How close are we to the edge? How much more are the people going to take?

  • willy

    Get user to it, no will stop them.

  • Rodster

    I can’t say it’s the govt who’s behind this although I wouldn’t put it pass them. Anonymous has been quite active lately. Until we find out where the attacks came from them we need to calm down. ;)

  • ZachPrepper

    Has anyone had updates to flash download or others sent to you, after having visited the site while in malware mode?

    • Rodster

      Interesting that you mentioned that because it happened to me this morning. Adobe Flash had crashed and tried to download the application. I refused it. I checked my Windows 8 error log and Flash did crash numerous times.

      THANKS FOR THE ALERT !!!!

      User location : France : I was redirected to a Youtube sexvideopage while using a SGTreport hyperlink from a KWN article . The link on the right side of the page did work, even if I have error messages. googling directly it don’t work at all today.

    Cant go on my laptop but thru my iphone the site seems to be working

  • MPB

    Perhap this can shed some light on the subject? This “was ” on SGT a couple of days ago.

    Google also did this to the daily Paul last year, coincidently on the day that their article was the number one search result about the merging of the Rockefeller and Rothschild investment firms. SGT, I have screenshots of this from that day as proof. Will email to you a bit later.

    Google runs the malware registry and checking it is enabled by default in Firefox and chrome. Anyone who cares about privacy should disable this. It sends all of your web traffic to google to check web pages against the registry before you visit them, “for your own good”. Also disabling it will make these types of warnings go away – I never even noticed a disruption on sgtreport.

    Peace out

    There are several products out there which can protect systems from being hacked. I use them on my personal pc’s and as an IT mgr (retired) where I worked with university computerized classrooms and labs. The two I use are Deep Freeze and Drive Shield. Research and see if it is right for you.

  • Rico

    @Sons of Liberty – How does one disable this tracking feature? Any thoughts or direction would be appreciated. Thanks!

    • Son of Liberty

      In Firefox open up Options click on the security icon and uncheck “block reported attack sites” and “block reported web forgeries”. There are similar options in chrome but I don’t have it in front of me

      • Johnny

        Just did what you said and disabled it through Firefox “options”. I can get on to King World no problem now.

        Hopefully my security will be adequate to protect me from the threat (or “threat”).

    • Do not track Plus is a plug-in for Firefox that will kill the cookie trackers too. Also, use Peerblock for stopping known unfriendly IPs from accessing anything on your machine. Finally, consider investing in a hardware firewall to trap attackers in a switch loop. I would have these things in place at a minimum before even surfing the web.

  • zepster

    JSMineset is probably next. Wow…

  • Mee

    Using opera and don´t notice this.
    Seems like some powers don´t like these sites. Makes me think I need to read them even more.

  • AwakeSleepingGiant

    Is Anonymous CIA or on our side? I’m confused. By now I would expect them to have taken down or caused serious damage to those in charge. I get tired of all their threats and see nothing happen or I’m just not getting the news that they have. In any event one has to protect their own computers.

  • bystander

    Jim Sinclair’s website is very slow at the time of writing.

    Either a coincidence, or someone somewhere is trying to attack alternative news and pro-gold/anti-fiat sites.

  • DT

    You know, I don’t know how many times I’ve wasted so much time writing a comment that never shows up on SGT Report….I did one yesterday and included a bunch of useful links for folks to use regarding cyber security…and it never showed up. What’s the deal!?

    • Brian

      Copy the comment before clicking “post” in case something is lost in transmission

      • DT

        Thanks for the tip, but I have done that, tried again, after which SGT site says that I have entered in a double comment…and then nothing shows up!

        Oh well, I’ll consider it a big glitch in the system…I’ve even tried other browsers to no avail.

        • Son of Liberty

          A lot of blogs will hold a comment to be approved by a moderator if it has more than a certain number of links in order to prevent comment spam.

  • fonestar

    Sgtreport, Before it’s ews and now King World News?

    THIS IS BULLSH*T!!!

    If people believed ANYTHING on the corporate media they wouldn’t be going to these sites in the first place! Too late banksters!!

  • Scott Sando

    Are you under attack again, when I try and link here it says there’s a problem with malware again.

  • zepster

    malware back up again. So are there malware through the ad links or has sgtreport been put on a malware list at google ?

  • ZORRO - London

    They can shut down the internet, but they cannot shut down the truth!…………….Z

  • BlobMan

    Guys I am an IT Expert and the attach originated from Russia….it has nothing to do with the US. It was a Trojan placed into their server and King News needs better security. Their server haslsecurity hokes the size of Swiss cheese.

  • FreedomScribe

    We are in the end times. Absolutely no one can be trusted for anything. Look into the mirror people, that person and Jesus are your only allies.

  • Rick

    When I access pages on KWN, my Norton firewall stops intrusion attempts pointing to a Russian site with references like lsor83ganiz.rr.nu (31.184.192.238).

  • Willie

    We should have let General Patton take out the fucking ruskies when we had the chance…

    • mark

      only problem with that thinking is you we would be taking ourselves out in the process…
      but i guess your limited faculties allow you to only think up inanities to post to your fellow morons to rave over.

  • Barrack Obama the communist dictator — and his f@%#ing cronies such as the Jewish princesses — Barbara Boxer and Dianna Feinstein and many-many other a&%holes and closet communist are in the pockets of the global banksters are out destroy America and the world and especially the internet. They are working to enslave us so we will become like the rest of the mass poor playing to field of the one world order financiers. Most of us are not going to sit still while your Gestapo (DHS) and marshal law tries to control us – it won’t happen. There are just too many of us that will react. We know you do not want the world to know how screwed our financial system and are trying to destroy gold and silver that shows we are in a major depression and the idiot BEN Bernenky at the Federal Reserve bank keep adding zeros to all of this bullshit money. Get out of here and go back to Kenya and drive some goats and not interfere with the internet the last free expression of the truth that is not controlled by the 6 major news corporations.

  • mark

    you guys are a little crazy. chrome just warns you and tells you if you really want to open the site you can continue to
    http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/King_World_News.html

    what is wrong with you people? can’t you read?

  • King World Attack - details

    I had downloaded King World news and printed it Thursday evening.
    Friday early morning, I googled King World News to listen to an audio.
    Google had a Warning.
    I checked Yahoo. no warning.
    To be safe,I opened up King World with my IE browser – it is on tighter security for all my financial transactions since Crome share purchace information.
    My Windows 7 Enterprise rus 2 virus (malware) programs and requires acceptance of everything that gets downloaded.
    Within seconds, with out warning, a redirect to a youtube – then bluescreen.

    The previopus Saturday night, I had updted all Windows updtes. Run full disk security scans on all hard-drives, and made a full hard-drive backup. Plus point in time recovery.
    Friday morning, I downloaded the latest malware profile, scanned and indeed had a new Trojan discovered. Removing it delayed the blue-screen but did not prevent it.
    Re-scanned – no trojan – point in time recovery from previous Saturday – problem fixed.

    In all the years of IT experience, I have never had this kind of thing happen.
    While some sites blame Russians, be aware that it is easy to smurf the source.

    It is true that King World went from a small blog years ago to a huge traffic site, the the level of this hack is huge.

    Another note: my Android smart phone was not affected by this Trojan.
    Microsoft announced a absolutely huge – massive 12 patches for 2/12/2013.
    Microsoft is horrible at explaining why patches are released.
