• Referrer Poisoning

    by  • 12/5/2004 • life • 0 Comments

    I’ve noticed a whole lot of bogus referrer addresses in my logs, and for the most part, I just ignore it. Today I wanted to see if the origin IP and the URI in the referrer were the same. Interestingly enough, the domain name doesn’t even appear to work… – – [05/Dec/2004:20:17:46 -0500] “GET /mt/mt-comments.cgi?entry_id=757 HTTP/1.0” 403 2075 bar.foo.ca “http://www.auto-insurancedeals-4u.info/” “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)” “”

    This claims that someone is following a link found on a page at http://www.auto-insurancedeals-4u.info that points to my site. The common reason that I know about for this is to get a link to their site on my http stats page. A look at my stats page shows a whole lot of poisoning, because I just don’t care… The question is, why advertise a domain that doesn’t resolve?

    I mean, yes, the domain is registered, but what of it? Trying to sell the domain, and not even setting up a page to mention that? Is there something in the world of spamming that I’m not aware of?
