Spyware Warning

Yes, this is a bit outside what I usually talk about; but these sorts of folks need to be stopped.

I was checking the visitor and referral logs for several of my websites. When I kept seeing the same site appearing in sites with a wide variety of topics, I thought I should see what it was.

So, I cut and pasted the link (don’t ever click on it directly if you want to protect the location of where your site’s stats are located; one free service was not properly protecting it’s users and I was able to get into the account without doing anything more than using the link of the referrer) and before I had lifted my finger off the Enter Key my Spyware software went nuts. It appears this site is a well-known site for infecting people’s computers with spyware. So well known in fact that it is included in my spyware software as a site to look out for. Nice.

Clever of them.

The reason they caught my eye in my stats is that they had sent me 4-5 hits so far this month. (I usually don’t bother with the single hits as so very many of them are just spammers.)

So, please be careful.
