    Yes but Google (with its 200 algorithm factors! ) should not ignore such dirty practices, this is pure/wild spam, they can't say it's licit! I suggests to press more Google rather than affiliate programs, and make them know our disappoint.

    [EDIT - I misread and the comment about reputation was in regard to the industry not me ]
    of course nothing personal. you cannot run an succesful affiliate site without credible reputation. but this hacker proofes us all wrong, apparently. because those casinos that advertise with him do not care (I asked a few why they do it and the answers are - to say the least - ridicolous). And if they continue doing so, it prooves that the traffic generated must be noteworthy (888!). So basically this guy is stealing players from everyone here that does a decent affiliate job.

    But what I miss in this forum and that pisses me most off. Is the total ignorance. We blaim Google, we blaim the casinos but nobody is actually doing anything. I read now the horror story of the previous poster that started the thread and it confirms that this hack is going on for years! And that someone that is posting here is threatened? I mean, what is going on?

    Further I cannot believe this bullshit that the hackers are not known in person. If someone brings that amount of traffic, any affiliate manager that does not know this affiliate should get a new job.
    and ... if you ever worked in an jurisdiction where affiliate sites get blocked on domain and/or IP level (not only casino operators) then you will understand that any activity that is criminal is ruining the industry´s reputation and triggering one day further actions of the authorities to everyone involved. And then all the affiliates are in deep ****. That is the bottom line.

    Thumbs down

    After doing a little research it appears the popups on this verified website are the exact same popups that started appearing on my site the other week. I have done a check it appears that site has similar malware i had infect my site.

    I am now starting to wonder if it was this jerk that hacked our site? Because his site has malware google should be blocking it.

    First - i am sure that there are enough people that meet him in person. However I would be surprised if he introduced himself by his real name. There are plenty AM leaving/changing companies or getting sucked - i am sure he wouldn't want 30 AM to know his name.

    Despite that, affiliate programs have enough information in order to catch him - all you need to do is follow the money trail. Will they do that - of course not and i am not sure i would act differently instead of them. I maybe would stop working with him if there is enough pressure, but don't think i would post his info or press charges, since it places them in a problematic place with other affiliates.

    Is there anything else that can be done - yes, sure. You cannot run a multimillion dollar company when all your traffic comes from one source. Therefore, if affiliate programs start loosing other affiliates, at certain point they will be forced to drop him.
    Practical moves: GPWA should take a stand and ban the programs. And change their page here to "rogue" to warn new affiliates. They can also send emails to all their data urging them to stop working with these programs. Of course we all should do the same. Eventually, the leverage will be enough.

    Will it make him stop - NO! We can influence only relatively big companies, the ones that are heavily promoted. But 80% of affiliate programs and casinos are just small companies, that appear on small amount of sites and get very little traffic. Therefore, we have no leverage on them. Due to that, even if the big companies drop him, he will still have a long waiting lists of programs eager to work with him...

    The sites that have been hacked, it isn't fraud as much as CRIMINAL Activity.

    The act of hacking into a website without permission and placing code on the pages is a criminal act in just about every country where I have researched it.

    I thought Vermont's quick explanation here was self explanatory
    http://itsecurity.vermont.gov/Report_Crime

    And here is the link to the co-operative by the FBI and the NW3C (National White Collar Crime Center)
    http://www.ic3.gov/faq/default.aspx

    Although I do not believe this is an official government site in the UK, I liked this layman's explanation, and although they quote statutes that are likely named differently in different countries, it helps anyone understand what is taking place.
    http://www.findlaw.co.uk/law/crimina..._z/500428.html

    People that have websites that have absolutely NOTHING to do with industry are being hacked, and code is place on their sites without the site owner's permission.

    This is a serious back eye to this industry, and ANY group that continues to work with these hackers are more than just foolish, they are hurting the image of the entire industry by not only allowing it to continue, but by paying the jerkwad hackers, are encouraging it.

    Just as in a group supporting any type of Terrorist, this is no different. Just a cyber Terrorist and NO brand should be working with them. Its leaning more towards this site that affected mine. If enough people report it, then something will get done. But if people just read a thread like this and think (Oh Someone else will report it) and do nothing. Then of course this sort of thing will continue.

    I just hope all those that have commented in this thread have sent emails to the casinos this site promotes, i know i have and none of them will every get exposure on our site until they close this particular operation down!

    "URGENT: ALL Affiliate programs: BAN VERIFIEDCASINOS.COM For Serious Hacking! (proof)"

    Shakespeare would have great delight in reading this thread from the beginning to the end.
    The viewer grasps the resounding silence as well as the path going nowhere.
    Chronology is an underrated power.

    Much ado about nothing.

    And the "nothing" already stand on the horizon and is waving to this thread.
    Waving with a chuckle and a shake of the head ... almost at the same time.

    This is my final post to all these hacker issues.
    I provided a technical solution to nearly every variation.
    No twaddle.
    No ghastly spin and no flashbangs.

    After several months the situation is crystal clear and anyone can see that with half an eye:

    Not a single program or the responsible individuals, the ones who were willful accomplice of that serious crime, have been brought to account.
    No one was arrested, prosecuted or sentenced or at least banned forever out of this industry.
    No one!
    Victor's justice has prevailed.
    Money issued the final judgement, and as expected virtual trial court ended 2015 with a silent but valid acquittal.
    The court dismissed the cases due to oblivion.

    Show must go on, industry?!

    Hi,

    sorry to come back to this issue again. However, It might be of interest for some of you. One of my own websites was hacked right after I made a post about the issue here. Really nasty hack, took us some time to sort it out. htaccess injections, generating fake wp feeds and so on.

    I also complained about the hacker to quite a few affiliate programs. The heat must have been building up for some affiliate managers (888 and affpower, it seems stopped their collaboration).

    I also read somewhere in this (already quite long...) thread that other affiliates also got attacked after posting here. Wtf is going on? Is there no way that the "community" gets active if this guy is now attacking even us? I know, we are not a Bingo club here, but does everyone just wait until the parasite attacks him as well?

    I am so sick and tired of this that I would like to mention here the affiliate programs Buffalo Partners and Affclub that still work with this guy.

    This example is especially daunting, since the hacked site in this case is a junior school:
    http://bhjs.co.uk/casino-theatre-mount-road-chennai/

    I will give my affiliate manager a hard time, perhaps you want to join.

    I really do not know what this "community" can or wants to do about this - perhaps the guys from gpwa have a proposal?

    ---------------------------------------------

    ps. correction - the landings are geotargeted. thanks for the private messages with the screenshots. 888 and affpower are still online...

    I've just had a quick look and I'm still seeing both 888 and AffPower on all the hacked sites I've looked at.

    The way to solve this is straight forward, but affiliates by and large are only self-interested. If every affiliate who had a review for the brands that appear on these sites change that review to negative 'don't recommend' reviews and stopped sending traffic, the rankings would quickly be flooded with negative reviews and the brands would feel a substantial impact on their traffic. At that point these brands would feel the "heat" very quickly. Everything else has failed.

    The sad truth is that would mean a good number of affiliates losing out on income as they killed their associations with the involved brands. So instead of standing together and hurting these brands that are actively ruining the industry we all work in, we'll all stand alone, taking what money we can and watching them get away with it.

    This isn't an attack on any individual - I understand the difficulties of having to make a choice that could threaten the stability of your business - just an acknowledgement of the realities.

    I totally agree with what you said but we have sufficent expanations why nothing is happening.

    Secondly. Thanks to everyone that sends me a private message. But I believe that you should post your views in the threads, even so you are worried that the hacker will attack your site.

    If everyone posts his views then the hacker will not be able to attack each affiliates' websites. Does he plan to attack everyone that is posting here?

    I just want to repeat that this hack IS BAD, BAD, BAD for the entire industry. It ruins our already quite shady reputation.
    This hack threatens our business model! This problem needs to be solved in our self-interest!

    Why?
    - some countries block not only operators but also affiliate sites already (eg Russia)
    - in some countries there are discussions on blocking ALL Casino related sites on ISP level (eg Austria)
    There is probably many other countries as well with similar thoughts.

    Do you think this not going to affect our business if normal bloggers and tech magazines already write about the hack (not only gambling related portals)?
    Do you think that thousands of innocent sites owners that experience this hack will not get mad on casino affiliates one day?

    One day also Google will wake up in some way.

    And if the **** hits the fan we are ALL going to be very very brown...

    Again, I am not the caritas (even so I really do not like to see school sites being hacked).

    But I am risking trouble by posting here because it is my AND your interest!

    When do you guys finally wake up and realise that?

    there needs to be mention that its not just BuffaloPartner its the whole WinTech company where as well betway is part of it

    i saw many affiliates here complaining but at the end you are just helping the operators to do what they want ... its not the fault of the hackers here alone, the first one to point are the operators !!!!!!

    there is no reason to stop them .. all of you are promoting them ... the community also said the best aff manager is from 888.com and the list goes on

    if the operators can be of one thing sure than there is no unity with affiliates and at the end money talks

    its is going on for years

    but u have them listed as well, we can not reach the hackers.. and i personally would say they try to make a buck as long as the operators allows them to do this..

    there is no point to bash out to the hackers with every single post here

    it is clearly the operators fault

    of course they do

    A good idea would be maybe to establish a board too .. creating a seal just as GPWA but just Affiliates can get it

    through this Board the Group can put pressure on Operators, be it like this case or non payments ect.

    As an example, members having this seal need to drop certain casinos if they are rough or are not ethical.

    This organization can also do much more things, if an Affiliate dies to handle a smooth transfer to the family and many more things, its a kind of isnurance too

    This Oragnization needs to be paid by affiliates and not operators !!!! not as we have it now

    Just thinking out loud here !

    AFFILIATE COMPLAINTS

    Sponsor will promptly respond to any complaint forwarded by the GPWA or by a GPWA affiliate member on behalf of the affiliate or on behalf of a visitor to a website operated by the affiliate. If the complaint alleges the Sponsor Companies failed to comply with these terms the Sponsor agrees the Sponsor Companies will either provide reasonable evidence of compliance with these terms, or offer a fair resolution of the complaint.

    seems not so important the own rules when money is involved

    perhaps the guys from gpwa do not read their own forums? too busy preparing for the contails on the next affiliate conference?

    I just noted that affclub (casino las vegas) is now part of the hack and spam club




    are they not part of a company quoted on the stock exchange?Name:  10f9jdj.jpg

    wow, how many of their shareholder's sites actually got already hacked?

    you should inform your affclub affiliate manager if he likes his job.

    if manfred bodner finds that out, he might eat him alive.
