I have found a malware link on their forum page!
http://forum.kncminer.com/forum/resellers-affilicates/general-questions/29033-worth-to-mineUnder
Posted yesterday by "Yo Trops"
Gives a link for http://www.thebitcoinsnews.com .
Link is fake and asks to install adobe flash to watch the video.
The malware file is called instsf449 File, size 2.04 MB
The only real "bitcoinnews" site is thebitcoinnews.co.uk/.

Have told KNC, I hope no-one here fell for it.
Be vigilant people!
