Malware reappears at Taitz web site

I hadn’t seen any of those pop-ups lately from Taitz, ones trying to make you think you needed to update some software or cure a problem on your computer. They’re back.

The Google Chrome browser flashed red on her site!

I presume this comes from some of her third-party advertising content.

While I was at it, I checked her stats at Alexa.com. Taitz has verified results at Alexa now, so we can actually see how many visits she gets:

Metric Orlytaitzesq.com Obamaconspiracy.org1
Daily unique visitors 1746 803
Daily page views 3578 1650
Monthly unique visitors 25170 10573

1Obama Conspiracy Theories statistics, as reported by Google Analytics, were for the 31 day period ending November 7, 2014, which excluded the anomalous spike in traffic on November 8-9.

We’re patched

A number of WordPress plug-ins have been found to have security issues of late, including the WPTouch feature that reformats this blog for mobile devices, reports ZDNet.

I am very aggressive in installing updates and patches on this blog, to maintain the stability of the site and to provide the safest browsing experience I can for my readers. When the story about WPTouch broke today, I had already put on the patch.

Exclusive: Orly’s moving

Update: Orly’s web site is back up. Content restored to June 29 July 1. Google Safe Sites now says not suspicious any more.

Update 2: This curious item appeared in one of Orly’s ad slots (the end is .com truncated by the screen):

In an exclusive interview this morning with Obama Conspiracy Theories, Orly Taitz expressed optimism that her web site would be back up soon.

Readers will recall that her site, hosted by Network Solutions, became unavailable for a couple of days after what she described as a hacking incident. The site was restored, but then Google Safe Sites flagged the site as being a vector for third-party malware, causing a warning page to be displayed in the Firefox and Chrome browsers when anyone attempted to access it. Then the site went back down completely again yesterday and remained down as of this morning.

Taitz responded in an email this morning:

My site was hacked. It was cleaned and should be up shortly. I am also changing the hosting company.

It’s the pits when your web site is down (and I’ve been on the Internet a long time both personally and commercially and have suffered a lot of down time). It’s also a pain to change hosting companies (as readers here have experienced). So in the name of free speech, the best of luck to Orly Taitz in getting her web site up, no matter how despicable the content.

By the way, I found out that my site’s automated backup procedure hadn’t worked since last February. It’s backed up now. “shock:

Notes from the infectious disease ward

UPDATE: Orly’s site is entirely down now. [5 PM EDT, 2 July 2014]

UPDATE 2: It’s back up.

This the third day since Google again identified OrlyTaitzESQ.com as an attack site, passing on malware to visitors. I take such warnings more seriously than I used to. Here’s a taste of what’s going on at the Taitz web site obtained through the browser on my phone.

Taitz continues to focus on immigration issues with this headline yesterday:

  • Response from Attorney Orly Taitz to Obama’s today’s speech: our immigration system is not broken, the only thing that is broken, is the path of neuron connections in Obama’s brain. Obama did not need to dispatch Biden to Central America to search for the cause of the problem, he had to dispatch himself to the nearest mirror

Taitz is praying for more Republicans to drive drunk in this item about Pete Perry who was quoted on this blog yesterday. The title of the article is:

  • As some of you may be aware by now, Hinds County GOP chair Pete Perry, a man that many believe is behind the shenanigans on June 24, was arrested for speeding and drunk driving this past Saturday night. Here is his mugshot. Hopefully there will be more pics like this in the future! We can only pray!

Taitz attacks!

Firefox users visiting the Orly Taitz web site today are seeing this message:

Reported Attack Page! warning message

Not long after Orly’s web site was restored following what she says was a hacking incident, I visited her site and saw a popup window that tried to get me to install some software. I detailed some of these popups in my article, “Taitz pop-up advertising more dodgy,” last February; and for a while those had stopped.

Now Google, through the Firefox browser, is issuing an attack warning. The specifics of the Google warning are:

Of the 97 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 9 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2014-06-27, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2014-06-27.

Malicious software includes 6 exploit(s), 3 trojan(s). Successful infection resulted in an average of 4 new process(es) on the target machine.

Malicious software is hosted on 2 domain(s), including indolocker.com/, zamcheck.org/.

1 domain(s) appear to be functioning as intermediaries for distributing malware to visitors of this site, including zamcheck.org/.

This site was hosted on 4 network(s) including AS6245 (NETWORK-SOLUTIONS), AS55002 (DEFENSE-NET), AS19871 (NETWORK-SOLUTIONS-HOSTING).

This looks to me like the malware is being funneled through her advertising stream. This is similar to what brought Birther Report down for a while (Birther Report is hosted by Google).

Before I retired, one of the employees of my company accessed the Taitz web site on a company computer. It took two days to get the malware cleaned up.

Taitz on the other hand says to ignore the warning in two articles:

  •  If you unable to go on my site, go to Firefox security/preferences and type the url www.orlytaitzesq.com as preference. You will not be blocked. the site appear to be working fine for most people.
  • Obots are inserting software to trigger warning messages, clock on “Ignore this”. 699 media outlets connect to www.orlytaitzesq.com Please, spread the word that regime is trying to stifle

Taitz pop-up advertising more dodgy

There’s a big contrast between the Orly Taitz AG web site, “see Orly run, run, run, run” and her main site, branded TaitzReport.com. The former doesn’t look too bad, except for the usual faux pas, like this footer:

Her main site has gotten aggressive of late with pop-up windows offering dates with Asian women, and a download for a video player from a page whose style is made to look like an Adobe Flash message. I submitted a copy of that executable file to Microsoft as possible malware. Here are some more pop-ups I got leaving my browser open on the Taitz site today:
