Shit shit shit shit. Why do we get fucking blamed for everything? Seriously… look at this headline;
“One of the world’s most popular online gaming sites is under siege from a creative malware scam that attempts to swindle players’ personal information and gaming credits”
Huh… so how the fuck is this SEO? Sure doesn’t sound like it. So we read on….seems they’re quoting another piece. So I went to check that out.
“Security pundits around the world have issued numerous warnings over the past year for Internet users on popular social networking and community sites to be on the lookout for socially engineered malware scams that attempt to capitalize on breaking news and pop culture events, as well as popular online gaming sites. ”
Ok hold the goddamned train a moment here. I still don’t get it? They are talking about hackers and putting us (wonderful and sweet) SEOs into the same fucking pile. What did we ever do to the security world? Are they of their rockers or what?
It sure seems they know a thing or two about SEO, however misguided, because they targeted a link in the post with ‘black hat SEO‘ which leads to this. A post about SQL injections? Listen up my bird shit writing brethren – HACKERS ARE NOT SEOs.
I mentioned this to some of me mates in the BH community and even they were offeneded (lol I had no idea they took pride in their work hehe). I don’t mind the trolls that trash SEO shenanigans as there are some black hatters that make a mess of the web, but to put them into the same boat as hackers? No fucking way. That’s illegal and entirely different. Are these shitheads ignorant? Or trying to capitalize on the spectre of those evil black hat SEOs? Not sure… but it is some serious crap.
