    Seems they are having some layout problems, looks like they have just scraped the entire site. Shame they haven't hotlinked any of the images, could of had some fun. I had this happen a couple of times in the past, I managed to get them shut down pretty quick, but it really depends on the hosting provider.

    If anyone knows of any connections etc, let us know. You may contact Anthony, myself or Michael, but cc'ing me or Anthony will insure the information is forwarded to the appropriate spots faster.

    So far a few observations.
    The logo is stolen in pieces from multiple sources.

    Daftdog, thanks for reporting this. I have submitted a DMCA copyright infringement complaint to Google. The content is almost certainly there to feed Google's spiders and create the impression the site has substance in preparation for later work. So I expect the best way to fight back is to make sure Google knows the site is cloned.

    We have now determined that the GPWA site was not scraped. Rather, when requests were made for a page on the offending site, a matching http request was made to retrieve the corresponding GPWA page, and then a modified version of that page was returned to the user. We have since blocked the ip address from which the requests were being made. so that site now returns what we return to them - a "403 - Forbidden: Access is denied." message on every page

    Thanks for the heads up
    I have grabbed one btag so far

    Looks like most tags are from original owner, so likely only home page changed

    I have managed to identify 3 sets of btags I do not think are onlinecasinorank's

    Anyone that pins this down, let me know so we can compare notes

    I also found someone scraped parts of GPWA hxxp://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:JxwVuGm8XrEJ:everettballroomdance.c om/en-AU/554-bet365-terms-and-conditions+&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=br

    And then cloaked the pages somehow, so they appear differently to user and to google bot. Above is googlebot version.

    Here is what users see:
    hxxp://everettballroomdance.com/en-AU/554-bet365-terms-and-conditions
    hxxp://best-casinos-online2019.com/
    hxxp://dolphinml.com/en-AU/554-bet365-rules
    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    Code:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:JxwVuGm8XrEJ:everettballroomdance.com/en-AU/554-bet365-terms-and-conditions+&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=br

    These nefarious scum bags, target WP sites. Unfortunately, the broken-link in that chain is, anyone can setup a WP site. Hence, why it's so easy for these scums bags to hack, and take control of these sites. It doesn't help matters, when, WP is setup automatically (majority of cases), because and by default, WP sets ALL the database User Privileges to ON.

    Only 10 of those DB permissions are required.

    While anything connected to the Internet has chance to be hacked etc., WP could do a lot more to their core coding, to curb script kiddies and basic hacks.
