    Seems to be happening much more frequently... I have a lot of reading to catch up on, as I am just getting back after a simi-long break..

    Not sure if your asking about similarweb.com or verifiedcasinos.com. Either way I've explained both below:

    As other members have pointed out, verifiedcasinos.com is a site in use, by one of the hackers. What basically happens is they are hacking WP sites and injecting code via an iframe. Which is displaying verifiedcasinos.com

    The other method is they're hacking sites and adding a new folder, normally "casinos" and then setting up 100's of pages. Similar to a mini WP site. Unlike to old days when your site was hacked and defaced, these days, unless your viewing folder structures your not going to be aware your site is hacked.

    similarweb.com
    These places have sprung up everywhere. The big players in this niche are:
    • ahrefs.com
    • majestic.com
    • moz.com
    Essentially what they do is scan a website, analyze its seo, links and other ranking footprints and sell this (your data) to anyone who wants it.
    I block these bots/crawlers at the front gate. I would suggest others do the same.

    Sorry, yes, mate - looking at verifiedcasinos.com, CaseyM - thanks for the link.

    And thanks for your replies. Okay, so we refused their offer to work with us, of course.

    Feel free to post their names and address details here. You guys (affiliate managers in general) are only too happy to move companies, taking names and contact details with you, or selling/trading/passing them on to your friends all the time. So don't be shy and don't protect them. These guys are criminals engaged in mass hacking and I would happily pass their details on to the FBI, Interpol or whoever. Or do that yourself. It seems to me its the only way this crap is going to stop.

    As Vladi has pointed out, we all know affiliate data, even player details, are shared and exchanged, between who knows who and sister casinos for example. However when a wayward affiliate hacks, scraps content, clones or any number of breaches of copyrights or illegal activities against hard-working-honest-affiliates, programs and AM's throw up the red-card and fall back on privacy statements.

    It's about time this criminal was unmasked. If a program or AM doesn't want to be directly connected to leaking this information, then signup under and alias and post this hacker's name and details. Either way, it's about time this shit was stopped and this criminal was brought to justice!

    Correction it's not the company I mentioned - my mistake.

    the person who contacted me mentioned that this is an affiliate that they work with and asked if I wanted to work with them and with this affiliate in particular. They didn't hide the fact that the affiliate does black hat.

    That's all I know.

    I was just checking about a site. Thanks

    I just want to make it clear that it was a mistake on my side implicating the company I mentioned - they are very reputable and good company and have nothing to do with this. Thanks and apologies.

    So who is jujiclick.com and how did they get caught up in this?

    I visited the site and apart from a few very vague sentences about being a team of online marketers and affiliation professionals... it's extremely limited in info give out.

    Even more strange, the whois data... domain registration is only 12 months and it uses Domains by Proxy.

    IMO sounds like some seo (bh?) marketing company...

    IF jujiclick.com is a legit company, why the secrecy?

    Very odd indeed o_O

    It wasn't jujiclick.com and I'm not going to post on the Internet the name of the person who offered me to work with verfiedcasinos.com

    As I promised, I will find the source and then publish all the information I find.

    Vladi and Bet4you - I agree with you both, but have to say that I would bet on Liverpool winning the Premier league before some affiliate program posting hackers name...

    Regarding jujiclick site - judging by the people involved (it was posted here somewhere), I assume their are some kind of master affiliates and the site is just something to put on the visit card. There are plenty of those.

    Of course I know that, but at least people know that they can send me a PM if they want to do the right thing but are too scared to do it.

    The irony that affiliate managers have been trading my personal and business info for years without my permission, but now they want to close ranks and protect a criminal is breathtaking. So it is worth pointing out in public too, even if I don't realistically expect a result from it.

    Excellent.
