Blog Owners– Beware of Malevolent Referring Sites!

433979196_1711941cec_z

Today I learned that there are malevolent sites out there that will show up in your “Referrers” section.  Their owners are hoping you will click on the link to their site… and then they will hit you with malicious code.

If you see a site with a weird name among your Referrers (for me it was Vampire Stat), I suggest doing some quick web research on it before you click on it.
