And Now We Have Tiny URL Spam!

A comment spam of a new sort just arrived so it’s most definitely connected to the recent Microsoft RPC warning and my spam spike in a previous post.

It was sourced at http://tinyurl.com and had a link to http://xrl.us which redirects to http://metamark.net/

This suggests to me, as I’ve never had this before, that they’ve automated the service provided by these legitimate companies as a way of obfuscating their url, which is on the domain t35.com   Needless to say, this is obfuscated with a domain name privacy service.

You know my thoughts on anonymous people!

I think I’ll block comments for a bit or I’ll never get any supper!

  1. Thanks Bjorn.
    I dropped you an email with the emo kid’s skull and crossbones stuff.

  2. Hi there,

    If you get spam/junk/viruses/scams with an xrl.us URL – please always let us know and we’ll promptly disable it. We’re always delighted to do our part to stop the fools who try to ruin the internet for the rest of us.

    The email address at the bottom of every page on metamark.net gets my attention.

    – ask
