Why are my Stats displays showingand more interestinglyNo stats yet, check back later.yet again?
"blogging.nitecruzr.net" is showing multiple hits in my Stats log!And none of this is really surprising, personally.
The bad guys, who have been serving various waves of referer spam against the many Blogger blogs, have recently included "nitecruzr.net" in their lists of websites, falsely advertised by their attacks.
I've been using this blog to talk about spam, in general - and about referer spam, in particular - for years. This week, the people who operate the referer spam networks are targeting me, in a Joe Job attack, using Stats logs to confuse Blogger blog owners.
In crime novels, it's called a "frame up". In networking, what they are doing is vaguely similar to a "smurf attack", using the various Blogger blog owners, in an attempt to overwhelm the forums.
I guess I should be flattered. Let's try to keep it in perspective, though.
