    So, YouLikeHits asks you to upload an HTML page to your website's server so as to get you Facebook page liked (it's a new measure to get Likes). I'm a bit worried though that the HTML page to be uploaded contains some malicious code or makes my website vulnerable, has anyone had a look at the HTML page that YLK says you have to upload to your site so as to get new Likes?

    This is the code below, can anyone tell whether it would be OK/benign to upload this to my server? I'm worried such an HTML page could create some form of vulnerability to my server/website.

    if it is HTML, then no, it will not harm your site at all.

    Only a php script could hurt you.

    I've just posted the actual coding in an image. While I would not expect YouLikeHits to deliberately ask us to upload to our server a malicious HTML page, I'm more worried of any hackers finding any vulnerability through the uploaded HTML page.

    From my minimal knowledge, the HTML code just calls on the Facebook banner to "Like", nothing more, but really wanted to double check (others using YLK can also get peace of mind by thos eof you with more knowledge answering).
