wordpress: referring links from *.cc
an annoying new malware tactic obviously… i’m sure if you have a wordpress blog, you’ve probably seen them: 30-40 hits in a single day from a referring link somewhere in the .cc tld.
woe be unto you(r computer) if you click the link, because you are immediately redirected through several servers across multiple tlds, then asked to download an .exe file. uh huh, right. i have a feeling that if i had been using firefox or ie, it wouldn’t have bothered to ask, it would have just auto-loaded.
BEWARE, all ye wordpress admins who click the link, for naught but doom awaits.
