AutoPligg claims it can spam thousands of sites using the Pligg CMS

by DB on July 29, 2008


A website by the name syndk8.net is claiming that it can spam thousands of websites that are using the popular cms package Pligg. Pligg is a digg clone and can be used to set up a digg like voting website in minutes.

syndk8.net is selling this AutoPligg spam tool for $189 and says the tool can do the following:

Register unlimited accounts, post as much stories as you want and even leave comments on those sites. (The funny part is you actually gain high quality backlinks out of these tasks and if you post a decent story you can go viral in a breeze!)

  • High quality 1 way links to your website
  • Automatically register for accounts. Even breaks CAPTCHAs!!
  • Create UNLIMITED profiles and indentities
  • Submit stories and comment to 1000′s of sites
  • Automated pinging after each submission
  • Stats to show succesful submissions
  • Proxy support
  • Increase your page ranking
  • Tag friendly
  • Flexible features
  • FREE lifetime upgrades
  • Access to the private forum
  • Get indexed in less than 24 hours flat! (google)
  • Get indexed in less than 48 hours flat! (yahoo)

The website says you can discover thousands of website running pligg by doing a simple “powered by pligg” search on google. The “powered by pligg” text appears in the footers of websites running the Pligg CMS. Though, it is required by license that the text not be removed from the footer, webmasters should remove this text from the footer to avoid easy detection through search engines.

The Pligg forum is currently discussing this issue and the admins on the forum say that an update to stop these kind of automated attacks is in the making. The Pligg forum thread discussing AutoPligg can be followed here.

A quick whois domain look up for syndk8.net shows the website is registered with a company called “T9 Media” in Malaga, which i believe is in Spain.

Lincoln Hawks of SocialCMSBuzz is covering this story and has more details.

If we have chased worldly things instead, we will die poor, wondering what our life
was all about. If you get shingles stay away from vulnerable people and take it easy.
