Red Carpet season is upon us! Anyone who knows me knows that I love movies. Ever since I saw “Superman” on the big screen in 1978 with my dad I was hooked (Little known fact: He and I wore matching denim outfits and suede shoes that evening). Since then films like “The Shining”, “The Color of Money”, “Unforgiven”, “No Country for Old Men”, “Silver Linings Playbook“, and this year's “Get Out” have kept me glued to the silver screen. Sometimes I mix business with personal on this blog and it is because I want you to always feel like you are getting a piece of me with every newsletter and post. With that said, enjoy this month's Knockoff Report™.
Cyber Criminals, more often than not, use tried and true online marketing techniques to reach their customers.
- Did you know that scammers create attractive websites just to add suckers to their mailing lists?
- Have you thought of the fact that pirates use malicious software ware to make money off of viewers?
- What about the fact that, no matter how Google enforces, black hat marketers will find their way around the rules?
The first-ever case to use covert online marketing techniques to win a federal case was Chanel v. Krispin (SDFL 2008). In this particular case, investigators at IPCybercrime logged and analyzed the source code of thousands of websites, while linking and grouping many offenders based on specific java script code inserted into subject websites. As a result, more often than not, we have been able to footprint the entire operation and bring the case to a successful outcome.
