New website at hacker website

Post by Adrian »

If for example I look here (top-rated-online-casinos2015.com/?lang=nl), i see Polder and Klaver (they're having a seal?) appearing at the website

Hi Adrian,

I'm going to alert the team at L&L Europe about this, but truthfully I don't expect them to do anything. The design of the site you've provided the link to has all the hallmarks of the hacked sites we've seen in the last couple of years, but this looks to be a real site. The domain is gambling specific and this isn't a page that is out of context with the rest of the website. If we can track down a site that's actually been hacked and injected with this design then you're in the position to actually present proof and get this affiliate's accounts closed.

I throw this one open to the forum - if anyone can locate a hacked site utilising the same design/aff codes let me know asap.

Bit late, but on GPWA ( http://www.gpwa.org/forum/dont-give-cri ... 29263.html ) appears a link. A lot of 'new' brands do appear. at Google is mentioned that the website ShiaSunni may be hacked. Having a look at the original content and the content that appears now, it seems it's hacked.

Brands that do appear besides the usual suspects are:

- Prime Slots
- Revenue Giants
- Casino Las Vegas
- Casinoland
- Yako / Polder / Klaver.

To be honest, most of the brands you've mentioned have frequently appeared on the hacked sites. I've contact the owner of Polder and Klaver to see if I can get them shut down and I'll reach out to Casino Land just now, but the others I'm not sure are worth the effort.

Some of the brands just don't care. Before I've contacted and spoken with people from AffPower, Buffalo, 888 and Fortune. They just don't care. So, I agree, it's not worth the effort for some of them. They proved before they don't care about it.

I'm having a look now which brands I still am linking to, moreover related brands as groups like Fortune, Revenue Giants and Prime are big and have some tentacles.

Just to confirm and highlight how quickly these programs took action - Polder, Klaver and CasinoLand have all been removed from this site.

Great action and good to see that this brands are taking action quickly. It is also again a sign that if a brand closes their accounts, they'll be removed quite soon. Not like AffPower (or Buffalo or 888) states "but they're opening new accounts all the time".

There are plenty of good reasons not to work with 888, Fortune Lounge, Prime or AffPower - they cement those very sound reasons when they continue to disregard the likely illegal activity of their affiliates. Essentially they make us all look bad. It's a really sad state of affairs.

True that. Myself, I got 888 and AffPower blacklisted since quite some time, Fortune Lounge since a year. Prime Partners, so far not, but not solving this issue is enough reason to blacklist them. Sometimes it's just difficult to catch all the related brands.

Also, a sad thing is that they're allowed to be the big shot at events, like affiliate conferences.

Like it or not 888 are one of the biggest groups in igaming. Unfortunately that means that they're big enough that it's very difficult to ignore them. With the best will in the world, if there was an igaming conference that specifically excluded 888 they'd make life very difficult for themselves and, given that most affiliates don't spend any time researching who they work with, many affiliates would have significant doubts about a conference that excludes such a big name.

In short, while I don't love seeing 888 have huge presence at these types of events, it's always going to be the case whether we like it or not.
