Web Browsers Block TPB over “Harmful Programs”

Web Browsers Block TPB over “Harmful Programs”

Two popular browsers, Chrome and Firefox, block direct access to The Pirate Bay's download pages. Google claims that The Pirate Bay contains "harmful programs," most likely triggered by malicious ads running on the website. Some people also faced a "hacking" warning.

Chrome and Firefox users are unable to access the TPB’s torrent download pages – instead, they now see an ominous red warning banner saying “The site ahead contains harmful programs.” The warning also goes on saying that attackers might attempt to trick users into installing malicious software. Mozilla’s Firefox browser displays a similar message. The message only appears on torrent detail pages, while the site homepage and search are still freely available. Both browsers rely on Google’s Safe Browsing report, where The Pirate Bay is currently listed as a partially dangerous website.

Besides, people who use Comodo’s Secure DNS also experienced problems reaching the website. The service has a built-in malware domain filtering feature, which flagged The Pirate Bay as a “hacking” site. However, this warning soon disappeared. At the same time, Comodo DNS still blocks access to our site, accusing it of spreading “malicious” content. It should be mentioned that Google’s Safe Browsing doesn’t report any issues with our domain name, which makes us believe that another source may play a role here.

We must note that this isn’t the first time that Comodo has blocked torrent sites. In most cases, the warnings disappear soon, and until then, you can add the domains to a whitelist to access them. As for Chrome and Firefox users, they can also take steps to bypass the blocks.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.

hasslesaf avatar(Linux user)

Normally I use ET, only visiting TPB when looking for Audio books. since I use Firefox I'm ok but I had to test is out with Chrome to see. Welcome to the new age guys. They are just going to control us and what we do..... I'm looking at remodeled open source version of Netscape from back in the day. NO SUPPORT no security just works gets around everything, I just wouldn't use CC.. ha

#1-hasslesaf i did the test yesterday and today FireFox and Chrome, both are blocking, check your config of Firefox (prevent website blabla option) but you can pass out the blobk by clicking the "let me go, i don't care" link on the red page
