Like I wrote in project description I planned a surprise for you on 30th day of Month of Search Engines Bugs. And today is the day of redirectors.
About redirectors I wrote in my article Redirectors in May (and I listed some redirectors in article). So for detailed information read this article (if you familiar with Ukrainian, and you should to be familiar, if you don’t want to miss all interesting) and now I tell you some words about this issue.
In a short - redirectors are bad. Because it can be used by bad guys for malicious purposes (like phishing). And so redirectors must be fixed - to not allow blind redirecting. This is serious problem which didn’t take attention from search engine vendors and web developers yet (just Google fixed one from many of its redirectors and fixed it poorly). So I am trying to attract attention of engines vendors and Internet community to this issue - I already wrote some times at my site about them and I decided to dedicate one day of MOSEB to the redirectors.
The list of redirectors in search engines (part 1).

Moral: redirectors can be dangerous.
In bonus post I’ll wrote about redirectors holes in others search engines and show you how to bypass Google’s protection for their first redirector. So wait for today’s bonus post .
