Dirty Web Promotion Tricks #1 - Legitimate and Malicious Javascripts

Continued from page 1

I hadn't clicked on anything! This script had been activated simply through me visitingrepparttar page. There were no warnings onrepparttar 119126 page that this was going to occur. Whatrepparttar 119127 javascript had done was to reset my "home" page and added entries to "My Favourites"! I examinedrepparttar 119128 script that had caused it occur and while I won't publish it here for obvious reasons, I can assure you that it would qualify as a "scumvertising" tactic.

When restarting IE I found that via an ezine site and another marketing company (from whererepparttar 119129 script was called), I was being redirected to a very well known software companies' home page. In total, there were 4 companies involved in this particular incident - I look forward torepparttar 119130 responses torepparttar 119131 emails I will send them.

If you have had this happen to you, I'd like to know about it.......

The JS.IEStart trojan is also known as VBS.Passon (CA), VBS.PassOn (NAV) VBS/IEstart.gen.

While it is not destructive, I object strongly to other companies adding sites to My Favourites and alteringrepparttar 119132 default home page without my permission or knowledge. If I hadn't had my AV program running inrepparttar 119133 background, I probably never would have figured out where this script came from. I have since then copiedrepparttar 119134 scripts, along with appropriate screenshots pending further action.

It is an invasive, disgusting marketing tactic that only serves to irritate visitors; and it helps giverepparttar 119135 web marketing industry a bad name. I am surerepparttar 119136 company I was redirected to will be interested in knowing that their advertising cash is being spent on a marketing firm who uses, in my opinion, illegitimate means to send visitors to them. It is a waste of their money as they are recieving traffic that is not targeted - what is known as "garbage traffic".

Torepparttar 119137 companies that incorporate this type of ploy as part of their "bleeding edge" marketing technology - "may you live in interesting times"! You will be caught out!

It's bad enough that we have to travelrepparttar 119138 'net with our AV programs and firewalls on "paranoid" mode - do we now have to have "pop up killers" running allrepparttar 119139 time as well?
