Blog Spammers examined

Recently I have been receiving a lot of spam to the “Comments” section of my blog … nothing new there, but these all seem to be from the same spammer. So I thought I’d see why …



Well I went over to the Forum at “tabletpcbuzz(dot)com” to see what the big attraction was … oops! looks like they are hacked and several Javascripts have been injected there …



As you can see the two highlighted in red sites are the culprits (already existed in my HOSTS file) anyway if you examine the javascripts they redirect the viewer to two other sites …


The golden-keys(dot)net script redirects to “thecanadianmeds.com”
The balticaffliate(dot)com script redirects to “viagraforlove.com”


Now neither of the medical enhancements sites are malicious, but they are the source of major spammers. If you do a Google Search on golden-keys you get: Results 1 – 10 of about 26,200.


If you search on “thecanadianmeds.com” you get Results 1 – 10 of about 769,000 and the majority are all spam links posted to various blogs and Forums …


Sandi Hardmeier mentioned something about this yesterday …
“This is scary… do we have to check every damned URL of every comment just in case it’s a dangerous site?”


Yes, I suggest Sandi you do … as it seems anymore no site can be really trusted …

  1. They’ve been hacked again? I’m sure that has happened before.

    Yep, back in February, and in March (twice).

  2. I’ve given up on TabletPCBuzz. That site has been hacked more times than I can count. I believe the owner is an MVP blogging on this site? At least, that’s where I’ve seen the posts about the site being hacked — is on this site. So, it goes to reason that you are seeing the affects of someone here pulling in additional Spam content.
