    Hello,

    I just saw this short clip :

    http://www.keywordthinktank.com/public/adware/clickbank_adware.html

    Which really got me thinking. First off, how is this done? I'd assume its got something to do with cookies, does it just change automatically or does the popup have some sneaky code changing the cookie to his link or whatever?

    And even more interesting, could this possible be used with CPA offers just like clickbank offers?

    Please share your ideas, if you could get that to work with some big cpa offers... that would be insane !

    Cheers

    Pretty cool vid. I don't think it's worth getting jailed for putting spyware to steal commission though.

    No more comments? To me this seems like one of the most blackhat methods I have seen with huge potential but maybe thats just me

    for clickbank its pretty simple. the last affiliate to have his page loaded is set in the cookie. so no matter what window the user orders from its still access the newly reset cookie. this i actually a very easy scam but some ppv networks will give you a hard time if you pop on the same or very similar url, which there are ways around of course.

    Wouldn't you be banned from CB as soon as someone reports you?

    yes, you could be banned, but CB is the easiest network to scam as nearly every applicant is approved. doing this is as simple as bidding on the advertisers url.

    If you look at bids of top selling CB URLs you'll see that they go around 0.09-0.1$ per view.

    That's x10 more than minimum.

    That means that a lot of people are doing this already...

    I think if you target the order page it would be to late. Right? Because once you are on the order page it shows you who the affiliate is. Unless it discounts what was placed down there when they hit order I dont see how it would work. The popup is going to load after the real order page so the cookie will be last but it would have already grabbed the real cookie. I could be wrong but thats how I see it working.

    Has anyone tried that?

    If that was happening you could look at the source code and see it right? You would see the flash or iframe I believe.

    But that would be a sneaky way of not paying people :)

    There was a fellow BHW member who created a software that could "implement" cookies into softwares. It works with CB, Amazon, eBay, .etc.
    So basically you use the software and embed your cookies into the software. Then you share the software to the public. Those who open it will be "stuffed". I heard it stuffs everytime when the person runs the actual installed program too.

    I remember it cost about $999 or something.

    Unfortunately, he was caught... fined and jailed, I believe.
    Brought some unnecessary attention to BHW causing a flood of newbies.
