Submission + - Hijacked web traffic for sale->

mask.of.sanity writes: If you can't create valuable content to attract users to your site, Russian cyber criminals will sell it to you.

Sellers inject hidden iframes into popular web sites and redirect the traffic to a nominated domain. Buyers purchase the traffic from the store to direct to their sites and the sellers get paid.
