Unwanted links or Link Hijacking
"There's trouble in River City" as the song goes.
Here are some of the irritations we have to deal with on the web:
Viruses, web bugs, spam, Pop Up Ads, Locking you into a site, redirecting you to porno or camera sales.
Now here is a new slap in the face. Called Link Hijacking. I first heard about it from my newsletter from Fred Langa.
Now let me provide a simple explanation of what happens. You move your mouse over a web site and when your mouse hovers over certain phrases, they highlight as if they are a link. If you click them, they work as a link. The crappy part is that THE LINK IS NOT PART OF THE WEB PAGE. It is generated by the Plug-in program added into YOUR PC. But guess who gets blamed for the apparent link!!!
To learn more about it, Google "linkhijacking". As of this writing there are many sites explaining what it is and how to get rid of it.
