Uh oh. Looks like The Daily Caller is experiencing some technical difficulties this morning. Google Chrome users report a malware warning when they try to access the site:

Here’s one of the messages that’s popping up when Daily Caller links are clicked:

daily-caller-malware

No official word from the Daily Caller Twitter feed, but a tipster tells us Tucker Carlson is aware of the problem and says it’s being addressed.

Update:

A confirmation that Firefox is also returning the warning message:

One person reports that the site comes up fine in the Opera browser:

@danriehl @twitchyteamI get it fine in Opera, which is a VERY secure browser…#just_sayin

Another tweeted that the Kindle Fire is allowing access:

@danriehl @twitchyteam I got onto Daily Call site with no prob on my Kindle Fire

Even if your browser allows you to access The Daily Caller, caution is probably a good idea for now. Twitchy will update when more information is available.

Update:

The Daily Caller is working on a fix.

TheDC is experiencing some technical difficulties this morning. We apologize for any inconvenience and we are working to fix it!
