    It's been a couple years since I've dealt with true IM campaigns. I've been busy with exploiting Adsense, online casinos and doing exploit consulting work for other IMers since then. Today is the day I'm getting back into IM. There was a reason why I decided to today. When you exploit things and run campaigns in ways that could get you sued, choosing a network is very important. Back in the day I used to run with ******** as I knew the owner personally and he had my back at all times. Annonimity was and still is priceless. Once Tank closed down I was left either trusting another network or moving onto something else. I chose something else which worked out for me since I now have a nice income stream from my most recent exploits.

    Today I saw a thread about a new network. I applied and spoke with my account manager to discuss my campaigns and everything seems good to go. So I believe I have a situation like I did with Tank. This is HUGE in my opinion...a network that will allow me to be creative with my campaigns and deploy exploits against traffic platforms. As such, my ass is back in IM. I could be completely wrong about the situation and perhaps in a week shit will go to hell. That's fine too.

    So this is a Journey so to speak about me taking action using the same exact principles, methods and tricks I discussed about in my other threads. There are 2 sides to this journey: (1) the regular marketing side where I leave campaigns running everyday to generate profit and (2) the exploiting side where I find vulnerabilities and deploy various exploits against the companies. For number 2 it will require a lot of testing and will take some time...that's what looking for exploits is all about. I may find some, I may not. For number 1, that will come into play sooner since it requires just upfront testing and tweaking to refine the campaigns. Then, once optimized, just letting them run to make money. I already launched a quick test campaign and have a 100% ROI at the moment. However, more testing will be done to get that up even further.

    I already know how certain campaigns do under certain situations. I would say that for scenario number 1, revenue will be $10,000 a month for the first a month or so. For scenario number 2, revenue will only come once a vulnerability is found and a proper exploit is deployed. Hell, I may even recruit people to help me scale it. I remember back in the day I was running 9 computers at once to take advantage of an email marketing vulnerability. In another instance, way back in the day, I recruited 8 or so people from BHW to help me scale out a massive CL campaign. It all depends on my workload and what the exploit calls for. Revenue from scenario 2 will only come on the weekends as many tech teams aren't available to patch it up (a proper deployment strategy). Revenue will be anywhere between $10,000 to $100,000 per exploit for scenario 2. Some exploits last longer than just the weekend so it could extend beyond just a one-time deal.

    This journey is solely dependent on the network sticking to their word on allowing me to do my thing. The main reason why I got out of the game was because not too many networks allow for such things. I may crash and burn, and that's fine. But one thing I'm an expert at is making money in ways others didn't think were possible. As long as the network has my back, I'll be doing IM. If ya'll what to follow me, feel free. Shit may get real. I have some crazy stories of back in the day when I was exploiting email companies. If I encounter any of that same stuff, I'll post it here. Overall I'll be posting on my progress as I go through the various stages of everything. You've seen some of my shit already so you know what's up (although a lot of it you haven't seen yet :)).

    How exactly are you finding exploits? Do you use some script, what language?

    I have to ask, 'exploiting' is such a broad term. Are you/should you be worried about legal complications... I would think being sued is the least of my worries. But again, the term exploit is so loose and I don't intend for you to explain too much further. But I'm guessing you aren't going as far as SQL or other database exploits. The Computer Fraud Act can be almost considered anything these days

    That's definitely an interesting journey. Good luck. Now I'll need to search your older threads since I'm interested in what you did. :D

    Saw a few of your other threads.

    Good luck with IM and I hope the network sticks to its word.

    First order of business is to make contact with one of my old developers who made a bot for me. It needs to be updated and cleaned from some bugs. This is going to be one of my main exploit tools for emailing. The protocol I follow is to test for weaknesses during the week and deploy the exploits during the weekend. I will probably spend a couple weeks going through the motions of looking for them through the various email marketing companies. Meanwhile, for my regular campaigns, I will be testing one traffic source at a time. One of the biggest mistakes I see people make is they trying to spread their testing to multiple traffic sources at once. For me, I would much rather perfect each one before moving on. So I'll spend a few days on the first one before scaling to another source, etc...

    I just run it via desktop. For the FF option, you just need to place the iMacro script in the tool and have the script in your iMacros software as a file. Then the two work in sync. If the script is not the same for either one, it will not run.

    I will be following this.... but I was checking the adsense and casino exploit method and noticed you have removed those videos. Any chance of putting them up again?

    Just finished reading an old thread of yours. I cant wait to see what kind of results you get with this new company. Surely this will be most impressive! Good luck!

    exploit really is broad... maybe nefarious/shady/crafty. When you use the word exploit it makes me think you've built a botnet or something. But will be interesting to see how this goes for you.

    Day 1 was focused on just one traffic source and mixing up the ad copy. I tried 6 different variations and found the one that works best. Now I need to focus on the format of the campaign and testing out adding a splash page or exit pop or even an exit overlay. By the end of the day I should have the traffic source dialed in and then can move on to traffic source 2.
