Quobuzz are the latest content thieves we've come across that have blind theft - i.e. the script is set up to steal from everyone, not just certain sites.

2,220,000 sites scraped so far with huge adsense ads above the scraped content.

It's a poor quality theft, that just uses "hidden" CSS tags to hide the stolen content when you view the page. Obviously, the Google cached version of any page and a quick look at the source code of the page will show the scraped content.

BBC - [quobuzz.com...]

You name it, they've scraped it.

No harm done here unless you use Google Analytics on your site. But then you already realised that such information was never going to be kept private, right?

"Info for my site is not even accurate."

I was suprised to learn that my server is located in Moscow.

No harm done? When my content, I wrote, is being used as SEO content on another site to generate Adsense revenue for them?

Which part of that are you okay with?
