Thursday, December 11, 2008 harmful site or hacked ???

I noticed that my another tech hobby blog (some said copy and paste blog: ha ha!) was reported as an attack site. So that I do not have to keep separate records of what I learned from experience of Ubuntu and other tricks, I am keeping that site. But, unfortunately, it has to go down now.

It is quite interesting because it has no script other than Chitika and Project wonderful (and Google adsense by default ;)) Moreover the source looks very clean.

The pattern looks familiar because this one (Time!) has been noticed to be redirecting to some stupid ringtone sites (if page impressions >200/per day ?). I did ask for some suggestions from other friends and they also could not see it.

Currently, I am stopping the site at 3000ms == 3 sec (window.stop). So, it stops everything after 3 seconds of loading the last widget. But that is not permanent solution.

I do not understand what is going on...
Makes me feel bad.

Detailed Report:

I have requested for review using the google webmaster tool (BTW it is amazing: need to learn how to add site map in blogger though), am waiting for what they will say: till then is closed!!!

  1. Hi,
    This is the second time I heard about a blog being hacked. A fellow blogger told me that his blog was hacked. There was an image placed on his blog then when he clicked on it, his blog disappeared. The sad thing he wasn't able to save a back-up. So next time have a back-up.

  2. That's a thing to be feared, your blog being hacked. I've heard they put very small links on the last part of your blog that redirects to somewhere else i.e. a spam site. Hope this won't happen to me.


Thanks for the comment.
