Recently a URL started making its way around various social platforms, advertising what seemed to be an imminent South African AC/DC tour.
Hosted at zadc.co.za, which seemed to be a quite clever combination of AC/DC and ZA, it all seemed to good to be true. Far too good to be true in fact – Google-ing the tour dates revealed nothing planned by AC/DC, just this one website collecting e-mails over standard HTTP.
A bit of sleuthing (okay, a domain lookup) revealed the registrant’s email address, so I dropped him a mail asking what exactly was happening with this tour.
His response was not encouraging.
I clarified and included a screenshot of the domain. He replied.
So, I guess that’s it. No AC/DC tour, just a strangely elaborate attempt to… harvest email addresses?
It looks like the hosts have removed the page, accessing it now returns
