Bad for KickassTorrents, again suffer censorship from Chrome, Firefox and other web browsers, which warn of the danger of entering the web.
KickassTorrents has become one of the largest communities for Torrent file sharing Internet.Virtually anything you look for on the net, is available in KAT, especially if they are current affairs.
What’s more, just a few days ago, its managers announced a new measure for users seeking to better protect their account, being able to add two-step verification to log in.
Misleading site alert when entering KickAssTorrents
However, today the community is taking a hit that is sure to affect their traffic, as many web browsers are alerting of the danger that can exist when accessing KickassTorrents. It is not the first time that it happens, neither on KickAssTorrents nor on other websites.
In the case of Chrome, the well-known (and striking) red screen appears with the message The website you are going to access is misleading:
Attackers of kat.cr could trick you into doing something dangerous, such as installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit card details).
The firefox messageIt is not the same, but it comes to report the same, as the companions of Adslzone tell:
Users using mobile browsers such as Safari on iOS and even other alternatives, such as Vivaldi, which launched a few days ago, are also being alerted.
Also, if we use the Google tool that verifies if a site offers us safe browsing, we see that it returns the Dangerous status on Kat.cr, the Kickasstorrents website: Attackers on this website may try to trick you into downloading software or stealing data (for example, passwords, messages, or credit card data).
How to bypass the lock and also access KAT
It is not the first time that it happens to them, a few months ago they were in a similar situation and their administrators said it was for a malicious ad block. In any case, you can still access KickassTorrent ignoring the alert message of the browser, or deactivating these measures in the browser for future occasions, as we explain here.
