Computer dating its like pimping
I’m going to remind Fry of his humanity the way only a woman can. I’m a porno-dealing monster, what do I care what you think? It’s like pimping, but you rarely have to use the phrase “upside your head.” I love this planet! I can’t wait til I’m old enough to feel ways about stuff! I’ve got wealth, fame, and access to the depths of sleaze that those things bring. According to Tech Crunch, Cyber Erotica is said to have launched the first online affiliate marketing firm in 1994.In 2001, Cyber Erotica’s parent firm Voice Media settled a lawsuit with the U. Federal Trade Commission, which alleged that the adult affiliate program was misrepresenting its service as free while it dinged subscribers for monthly charges and made it difficult for them to cancel.These days, the total number of servers reporting in to this spam network fluctuates between 50,000 and 100,000.Thanks to a tip from an anti-spam activist who asked not to be named, I was able to see that the botnet appears to be busy promoting a seemingly endless network of adult dating Web sites connected to just two companies: Cyber Erotica, and Deniro Marketing LLC (a.k.a. As affiliate marketing programs go, Cyber Erotica stretches way back — perhaps to the beginning.
When this information is present in the headers (and not simply listed as “unknown”) it is the fully-verified, real name of the machine that sent the message (at least as far as the domain name system is concerned).That’s because spammers are usually involved in the distribution of malicious software, and spammers who maintain vast networks of apparently compromised systems are almost always involved in creating or at least commissioning the creation of said malware.Worse, porn spammers are some of the lowest of the low, so it’s only prudent to behave as if any and all of their online assets are actively hostile or malicious.What’s unusual (and somewhat lame) about this botnet is that — through a variety of botnet reporting panels that are still displaying data — we can get live, real-time updates about the size and status of this crime machine. I was unable to load these panels in a Google Chrome browser (perhaps the XML data on the page is missing some key components), but they loaded fine in Mozilla Firefox.
But a note of caution: I’d strongly encourage anyone interested in following my research to take care before visiting these panels, preferably doing so from a disposable “virtual” machine that runs something other than Microsoft Windows.
Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money! If you do too much, people get dependent on you, and if you do nothing, they lose hope.
