Cookie-Stuffing Targeting mlb.com
Cookie-Stuffing Targeting Major Affiliate Merchants - Ben Edelman
This page reports cookie-stuffing by edealinfo.com, targeting mlb.com. In my testing, this is but one of many affiilate web sites targeting this and other merchants.
As of November 4, the http://www.edealinfo.com/Coupons/mlb.shtml page was #5 in Google results for "mlb.com coupon" (without quotes). The specified URL included the following IFRAME, which opened a CJ tracking link in a hidden window:
<iframe border=0 frameborder=0 framespacing=0 height=1 width=0 marginheight=0 marginwidth=0 noResize scrolling=no src="http://www.qksrv.net/click-600263-5656274" vspale=0></iframe>
I captured the resulting on-screen display in a video (WindowsMedia format, view in Full Screen mode). I also preserved a full packet log of these findings.
