TOKYO (MacHouse) – Several hours ago, we reported the revival of a porn problem at Google-owned Blogspot. That is, a spammer posts spam comments at blogs and forums worldwide to advertise porn website at Blogspot. We attempted to contact Blogspot and ask some questions. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard from them. That’s no problem. We will be here next month. It’s just that we found a dozen more porn websites at Blogspot. At the time of writing this article, at least 3 of them including bikini-horny-teen.blogspot.com, hardteentit.blogspot.com and moviesexyteen.blogspot.com existed (See Screenshots 05-7 at the bottom).
Screenshots of actual porn comments that went around forums and blogs several hours are shown above. And the following list shows the actual porn links at Blogspot.
So why don’t they remove these porn websites? Honestly, I don’t know. Only Blogspot has the answer. Perhaps, they don’t have to, or they don’t want to? As a matter of fact, they started installing the FLAG BLOG sign at the top of each blog several months ago. (See Screenshot 03.) They are relying on visitors for sure. That doesn’t mean they don’t regularly and actively patrol all their blogs. But I can tell you that I reported twice a suspicious blog where a guy (who calls himself Jerry in ICQ) claims that he sells exploitation toolkits including Neosploit, Firepack, mpack, Limbo, Agent DQ and Ebanca trojan. And this website still exists. How much is Firepack? He wants $150 for it. What, does Blogspot allow people to sell computer viruses? I wonder if selling or distributing computer viruses is against the law in some countries?
Anyway, if we can find porn links but Blogspot can’t, then what are they doing wrong? Do we use special tools to search Blogspot websites? Hmm, not really… I’m sure intelligent people like Blogspot staff don’t need our assistance, but if they really can’t figure out how to get the same porn list that we have. Here is a simple step-by-by tutorial.
- Download the latest version of WordPress package at WordPress
- Install WordPress on a server.
- Post a support comment at WordPress Support and say that you want people to review the blog. Post a link. WordPress Support forums are regularly crawled by spam bots. Also, post a link at WordPress JPN forums. This website is crawled by spam bots, too.
- Login and go to Options > Discussion and turn on the moderation function.
- Wait for several days.
- Login and go to Comments. Look under Awaiting Moderation. (See Screenshot 04.)
By the way, if you take a look at Screenshot 01 & 02, you may notice something interesting. If you don’t, then you may want to compare them with ones from the previous article and a January 11th article. The same IP address is used. It’s 188.8.131.52. Chances are that the same guy is messing with Blogspot. Furthermore, a traceroute search on this IP address will lead us to ns.km23545.keymachine.de. We have heard of this domain before, right? If you ask RIPE about it, you will get the name of Keyweb AG.

We have come to believe that the piece of application one is forced to download against their will contains malware installation. People are mislead to believe that special software is required to watch movies. As Blogspot has not taken decisive measures against these porn websites, we strongly advise Internet users to avoid going to Blogspot.
