Recently, I noticed that DiversityHuman.com logged a sudden spike of bandwidth usage. As a normal instinct being the administrator of this site, I checked the logs of unique IP addresses if it made a significant increase. Unfortunately, we didn't get too much unique visitors that our server can't handle.
So, what could have been the issue?
Simple answer, we are being spammed with comments. One of the prominent spammers is promoting nufftag.com, see Figures 1 & 2.
Do you happen to know nufftag.com?
Out of my curiosity I visited the page of the advertising network.
The look of the site is very similar to nuffnang.com so I was thinking that nufftag.com is affiliated to nuffnang but browsing through the site's FAQ didn't mention anything about nuffnang. That rings a bell right?
Another thing, it does not provide the address of their corporate office headquarter. And the contact us link is not even working at all.
Let's take a look at the backend side of the website.
Whois Information shows:

Too bad, the owner forgot to add domain privacy. DiversityHuman.com caught you nufftag, right in your face!
Google failed to provide me relevant information about the nufftag, so I directly reported this website to nuffnang Philippines.
Honestly, I just came home from Nuffnang Headquarter (Philippines). I was greeted by two beautiful nuffnang ladies - Toni and Marianne. Just a little segway, they were so kind and they directly entertained me. Thank you so much for your time guys!
Going back to the issue, Toni confirmed that Nuffnang.com is not affiliated to nufftag.com and she was also surprised that the site has a similar logo of nuffnang and nuffnangx which was launched a couple of days ago.
Toni told me that they will be informing all nuffnang publishers regarding this bogus advertising network.
Well, I guess that's basically the information I want to let the nuffnang publishers know. Bye for now guys.
Don't be a victim of this 'fraud' site. Sorry nufftag.com, I can't just accept the way you are spamming our site. It's too annoying and unethical.
