GOOGLE, WALMART, PORN AND MALWARE…

walmart porn 150118 I run several Google alerts to stay on top of specific interests. For The Writing On The Wal I run a simple search for the tags Walmart and Wal-Mart. Since the first of the year, when I returned to more serious blogging about the Bentonvile Behemoth, I've noticed a heavy concentration---about 30 percent---of the alerts contain one or more links to stories that appear to be about Walmart, but redirect to pornography. After the first couple of such hits I started checking the links before I clicked on them so as to avoid hitting a site that might contain malware. When I spot one, see the three links above (Kala King Patisserie, expressdivorce.ca and ig-glass.ru), I flag the alert as irrelevant and move on. That hackers have figured out the banality of Walmart on the web is a further sign that all the world looks to Wally World. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
