Spam referrer links

| No comments

I came across some weird referrer links having Forex stuff on the url. Turns out, these are referrer spam. I've read somewhere that you shouldn't click on it. Well, I did (that is, before I came across the article) and I've got to say these sites have nothing to do with mine. Here is a good explanation on what the heck these links are.

While I was browsing through my referring links, I came across something similar to XXX.XX.X.XX:XXXXX/cgi-bin/blockOptions.cgi?ws-session=XXXXXXXXX. Being the newb that I am, I was worried whether someone might be hating my site and decided to block it or perhaps hack it :{
