Ha! Cheers mate!Yeah, we'll have to see if we can make the link active. That'd be nice.:-)
Well, look here's an interesting this - was the site you visited actually hacked? All the incidents that I have seen recently have been ad banners with a redirector. No unauthorised access has actually taken place, and the target sites themselves are not compromised.. but the Flash banners have been tampered with by someone in the affiliate chain.I'm not endorsing or supporting this technique at all, but the question is this - is it illegal? And I'm not at all certain it is.. unethical, yes.. but illegal?
Conrad asked if it is illegal. I'm not an attorney, so I don't know, but it sure doesn't feel right, and I think it should be blocked.
