Another day, another company has failed in trying to make me buy their product and I ain’t suprised no more. It was actually pretty clever. What happened is that they link to your WordPress installation and this causes a traceback to happen.
Now, typically linking to your is a good thing but in this case, the company trying to sell the product is now displaying their link within my WordPress Admin CP.
Now, being the type of person I am, I clicked on the link and it took me to a “YOUR COMPUTER HAS VIRUSES” page and not even for a second did I know it was true. On that page, it did an “online scan” and it was showing my C: Drive and D: Drive and scaning the DDL files within my “Windows” folder.
