Adverlets alert!

Three bloggers brought my attention to this hot news. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know because I don’t use Advertlets.

Kralz mentioned it on my blog.

Ed of EdwardKhoo.com also told me about it and mentioned on his blog post ‘Josh Lim where are you?’.

Pinobolu also told me about it.

Hi Lilian

Any site that has advertlets code will be redirected to adbaaz.com. If
you remove the code it will be OK.

I don’t have any comment about this but if you are putting Advertlets, you may want to see what to do. Read the suggestions given by the above bloggers.

Moral of the story : Always renew your domains way ahead of its expiry. I have renewed most of my domains till 2010.

Now everyone better check their domains expiry dates.

See the panic and havoc from Advertlets publishers. LOL.

    i also come to notice just now.
    Advertlets sure got a big problem now.
    I guess they would start giving money to lure ppl back to them.
    n then, we can take advantage….haha!

    5xmom, which plugin do you use to place Adsense on all over places. Did you put everything manually?

    Hong Kiat, the blockquote Adsense is not intentional. That ad was placed randomly by a WordPress plugin:

    I am also using it :)

    Tsk tsk tsk… what a careless mistake not renewing their domain name. Good thing I removed their scripts from my site last week.
