Here’s a thing. The avast! Online Security and Web Reputation Plugin, a web browser extension bundled with one of the world’s most popular free security programs, rates the online homepage of the Scottish Nationalist Party as “bad”. That means the SNP’s website has been found by multiple avast! users to be a “dangerous” internet location to visit, one infected with various unsafe programs that could potentially infect one’s own device.
This is nonsense of course but it cannot have happened accidentally. It can only be the result of a mass effort to falsely flag the SNP website to avast! users (and rather pointlessly so). And it certainly casts the claims of the electronic war by the so-called “Scottish cybernnats” in their true light since the websites of the Scottish Labour Party and the Conservatives show no such warnings.
