NOTE: We found the issue at Brian’s blog. Its a url he added in courtesy to where the article was found. Removing the article URL should cure the problem on Brian’s site within the next 24 hours. Still don’t know why Facebook is blocking my site. No need for further screen shots of Brian’s blog being blocked by the Chrome browser. We may have to discontinue the practice of putting active links to the sources that articles are posted from if this kind of thing keeps up. -AK
Censorship of the OPPT through web URL blacklisting….
We are noticing a deliberate attempt to censor American Kabuki and Brian Kelly’s blog through the so called Internet Security industry. There are companies who offer lists of URLs that supposedly contain malicious web code (trojans, virus, spam, popups). Many of these companies offer no recourse for false positives. Malicious blacklisting by shadow groups is a form of web site harassment and denial of free speech.
Facebook is using a company called WEBROOT that is issuing warnings that my blog contains malicious software. There’s no software at all on my site.
Brian just got a notice from a Swedish reader, of a similar problem coming out of the Chrome browser in Sweden.
If you get such an error accessing any OPPT site, please take a screen shot of the error and email me it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are going to file a list of the companies who engage in free speech censorship.
Perhaps we should also send them a Courtesy Notice?
