not the best example

canadianpharmacymeds.com isn't the best example. If you check the site, they do require identification and valid prescriptions from a physician, just like Medco or Caremark. And you can go to the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, ciparx.ca, and find that the pharmacy is a member in good s...

Doesn't have to change the profile page settings

It doesn't have to be the profiles; that's just one way of getting a broad number of pages linked to a single entry page. It could be as simple as an invisible index page that is submitted to Google webmaster services that has a list of the most recent 20,000 scorecards which have been edited. It ju...

Getting WOT reviews into Google search results

I have been posting on SiteAdvisor.com for some time. Some of the investigations done by its bot are useful, especially leaving an email address on each website and reporting whether that address began to receive spam. But while they are prompt at rating phish and malware, they move glacially slowly...

URIBL

The comments that marked your site red were all from May, when apparently URIBL listed it as having appeared in spam. As far as I know, those reviewers only have access to the free public feeds from URIBL, which are collected from spam <i>after</i> it is received. (Companies that produce spam filter...

URIBL access

I have emailed as well. I think there has been a change in the wording of the announcement on their website -- I can't remember exactly what it said before. Currently, it seems to indicate they are still assessing what their next step will be. If that is the case, it makes sense they would not say y...

The herring isn't even red

He keeps harping on "shareware." He says we can try it before we buy. But the download doesn't allow a trial. It merely produces an output window promoting its own sale. It gives you no useful information about whether that product performed the task it claims to have done. Had it provided a list of...

Stopzilla

It sounds like bad marketing has made a mediocre product come off as malicious. Our tech support people suggested installing the paid version on a machine at work that had a rootkit. The installed AV program, Avira, wouldn't update and didn't recognize any problem files when it scanned. Malwarebytes...

DDoS on school

If your friend has enough computers under his control to conduct a DDoS -- a <i>distributed</i> denial of service attack, i.e., an attack taken by many computers on a single target -- he's involved in a lot more illegal activity than just a prank to annoy the school administration. The computers use...
