Skip to comments.The Border Patrol Continues to Act as if a Federal Judge Hadnít Just Blocked Obamaís Amnesty

While a federal judges injunction has halted the implementation of President Obamas sweeping executive actions from November, it appears U.S. Customs and Border Protection never got the news.
There is no malware on National Review. That's nonsense.
Now that’s just plain funny.... Smart malware bytes. I like them too
You think NRO is a conservative site????
Now that’s even funnier
My virus software flags them as well. NR has malware problems!
What are you saying they converted?
The Sultan is ignoring the courts. At some point when it becomes convenient he will openly defy the courts. He doesn’t have to defy Congress because the Senate is still run by his minion Reid and the House has Boehner.
What software are you using? Mine is not picking it up at all?
It used to be many years ago.
Now it sux. A mere skeleton of what it was.
“My virus software flags them as well. NR has malware problems!”
A disruptor can just falsely report problems from a site, and others will be alerted of potential problems.
Huh? What does that mean?
Some security software will give you a warning notice, if you try to go to a website that is on their list of problem sites.
An easy attack on a site, is to report that site to the software company, to get it automatically added to their list of risky sites. The company will automatically warn everyone, until they can get around to checking out the complaint. So the attacker can just frequently make false reports, to sabotage a site that they don’t like.
So just because you get a warning from your security software, it does not necessarily mean that there is a real threat - it could be leftie vandals trying to disrupt their political enemies.
I don’t know the last time you read NRO but it hasn’t been conservative for a long time.....
My point precisely
My virus software listed the threat as the site was infected with adobe flash malware.
It doesn’t sound like something they haven’t checked out. If it was liberals playing games they would be picking websites far more conservative than NRO.
Well, safety first.
I just mention that possibility for general awareness. The Chinese have often done this to sites of their political opponents, such as Tibetan Buddhists and Falun Gong. It is something that an unsophisticated attacker can do.
The companies that provide security software no doubt have been adapting to this kind of attack, to make it harder to submit false alarms.
Sophisticated attackers can use real malware to attack or track visitors to the sites they target.
Anyhow, it was just a chatty offhand comment, nothing definitive or authoritative.
