More comment-spam on YouTube

Does anyone else hate these spammers on YouTube? They seem to hit every popular games-related video.

Can I get my virus in orange, please? Take my money, credit card and social security number (<insert your local equivalent here>)!

90% of them are hosted on Blogspot and there seems to be no point in reporting them. They keep popping back up again, regardless. Same text, slightly different URL.

Death to spammers.

YouPic comment spam on Google+

I'm becoming enervated by these spams-comments added on all new posts in various photo-groups on Google+:

Do you have You Pic account to showcase and explore it more?

Multiple accounts do this, but there are no links, just text. I guess they're afraid Google+ will put youpic.com on a blacklist if they linked it.

UPDATE:

They have recently altered the spam-text to:

"Superior photography, do you showcase this on the webpage YouPic ?"

No I don't, and I won't. Ever. Please go die in a fire. Seriously.

UPDATE #2:

The spammers have altered their tactics. Payload now contains a link to YouPic's Google Plus page, and the text is more random.

Beautiful Photography, want to know how much likes you got ? https://plus.google.com/[…]/videos

Good Photography, want to know your comments, https://plus.google.com/[…]/videos

creative click, want to know your public likes, https://plus.google.com/[…]/videos

Beautiful...why can't you connect with our community... https://plus.google.com/[…]/videos

UPDATE #3:

I'm not the only one who has reacted to YouPic's shoddy business practices:


Stay away from YouPic!

Looking for a job?

Looking for a job? Some Chinese IPs in the 202.46-range sure are. On our server no less. Why? Dunno.

None of these files have ever been on our server:

China loves ColdFusion?

Some Chinese IPs in the 202.46.xx.xx-range are regularly trying to reach the following pages on our webserver:


Adware_Removal.cfm
Best_Browser.cfm
Computer_Parts.cfm
Disk_Defragmenter.cfm
Firewall_Protection.cfm
Fix_Slow_Computer.cfm
Format_Hard_Drives.cfm
Laptop_Repairs.cfm
Online_Data_Backup.cfm
Registry_Cleaner.cfm
Registry_Restore.cfm
Security_Software.cfm
Virus_Removal.cfm
Windows_Repair.cfm
Windows_XP_Help.cfm
Windows_XP_Software.cfm

Example:

xxx:80 202.46.xxx.xxx - - [xx/xxx/2014:xx:xx:xx +0200] "GET /Registry_Restore.cfm?fp=[randomcharacters]&maxads=0&prvtof=[randomcharacters]&kt=xxx&kbc=xxx&ki=xxxxxx&ktd=0&kp=4 HTTP/1.1" 403 222 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0"

These appear to be ColdFusion files, and, well, we're not running ColdFusion. These files aren't on our server and they are met with a 403 anyway... I'm puzzled, though. It there ColdFusion package with gaping security holes out there? What are these files?

Steam Friends down for maintenance…

This is what usually greets me when I want to play games:


Steam is constantly broken…

Steam, and its wonderful update-system

Why is it so, that when I open up Steam there's an update that I have to wait for? Why wasn't this done while I was away and not using the computer? It's on 24/7, and Steam is always running. It can't be that hard to make it just a little better, can it?

Plus, how many times do Steam claim there's an update, when, in fact, there is none?


Steam is a clunky piece of crap that is long overdue for some major overhaul.

Electronic Arts in Hostile Bid to Acquire Take Two

Entertainment software giant Electronic Arts announced Feb. 24 that it was seeking to merge with GTA publisher Take Two Interactive in what would be a two billion dollar deal.

– Oh, crap...

Take Two Interactive released a response to Electronic Arts’ hostile takeover bid, where the board confirmed EA’s offer and pronounced it "inadequate in multiple respects and not in the best interests of Take-Two’s stockholders."– Yay! Go Take-Two!
