Christmas comes early as hasbara banished from the net...again

I don't know how or why this is happening but I first noticed last Christmas Day that attempts at visiting The Jewish Chronicle site were greeted with a google Malware warning.  Here's my post from back then:
Hey look at this.  I said before that Bob from Brockley is a useful one stop shop for hasbara sites.  I won't link to it now because I just went to it and I got this:

Danger: Malware Ahead!
Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on brockley.blogspot.co.uk.
Content from www.thejc.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.
Malware is malicious software that causes things like identity theft, financial loss and permanent file deletion. Learn more

So poor old Bob from Brockley is getting flagged for malware on account of links to The Jewish Chronicle.  I've linked to both Bob from Brockley and The JC before now. I'm not aware of Jews sans frontieres yielding a malware warning.  Maybe it's context specific. Obviously I don't link to The JC as approvingly as Bob from Brockley does.  So maybe it's just the hasbara sites which are problematic.  Still, it's made my Christmas.

Have a good one everyone...
Sure enough the same thing has happened at the Israel advocacy site, Bob from Brockley.  I was a tad overcautious not linking to it so here it is and here's The JC.  After all they have got google protection.
