fennec: Difficult to know for sure, but hackers they are not.
I don’t get my malware detecting software tripping. They aren’t phishing.
They could be spamdexing to boost their websites’ scoring in web searches. That might explain the irrational behaviour by not caring about annoying us which isn’t a great marketing ploy.
So we’re not really the target market.
Their websites are very amateurish though, poor English, poor design, not secure which means their business intent may not be serious i.e scam you for a few bucks via paypal account for goods that will never show up on your doorstep.
The websites are all recent (June, July & August registrations, all in Putian, Fujian province, China) which might support this theory.
Gocomics is simply a very insecure forum and an easy target for a spambot to repeatedly hit it.
I don’t know their tactics, spamming isn’t my forté but the spammers certainly are scaling up their onslaught.
I can understand someone’s blog being hit like this but Gocomics is a serious on-line business concern. It reflects badly on it as it shows it is being run very poorly.
Btw, there’s some idiot suggesting we interact with the spammers by emailing them. Don’t (I don’t think you would but others might). That’s stupid and giving them a confirmed email address to sell on.
There are other suggestions that Gocomics is in cahoots with these spammers. Also not true. They are victims but being revealed as possibly not very professional in the way the spam is being handled.
