RAWK Hacked..?
« on: April 28, 2020, 07:15:14 PM »
Getting notifications about a slew of trackers that have suddenly appeared on RAWK

Google Analytics

Skim Links


You also have one more which is a bit more background and I only saw it appear (Then vanish) once..

Skim links has been on a long while I think, believe it adds affiliate links where it can so the site can earn a little coin.

Craig is right on skimlinks and google analytics is as it says, nothing dodgy there. There's no other requests or trackers, I think maybe you need to look a little closer to home if you're getting something else ;D

Yep the skim links one appears on almost every forum, it can be irritating when reading a post next thing you have a random word(s) being highlighted for shopping links by skim links, ad blockers solve this issue.

I very rarely see it on here and don't use any ad blockers.
