BayTSP and fake copyright infringement notices
Posted by: Vektor

BayTSP is a company that sends copyright infringement notices via e-mail to users they found that were "infringing copyright" of their clients. These e-mails have a link to their website with a comment hash in it. And most their links got indexed by search engines because they have no robots.txt on their website. Anybody from any IP can view them and respond to them. No IP check or any authentification is made. Combine their reputation with XSS holes in their website big enough to allow someone to inject a full website into their response form and you get a good scare factor that would make users click on anything they see there even if they normally wouldn't. Their "service" is a big failure.
