The Porn warnings around the portal Redtube make her big round. Probably thousands of people had in the last few days post the law firm of U + C (Urmann + colleagues) also readers reported in the mailbox, in our comments to speak. The Abgemahnt users will now pay 250 Euros: € 149.50 attorney fees plus a flat rate of 20 € for Post and Telecommunications. In addition, € 15.50 damages and 65 € in expenses for the investigation. The amount in dispute was reported at 1080.50 euros.

I have read in the past few days a lot on this topic and much is congruent. Many users are supposedly a telecom connection to call their own, one suspects may mistype a domain and a virus that is active on Windows. The typo domain leads naturally to Redtube.net on Redtube.com and could have served as a honeypot. This domain was apparently only on 21 July 2013 registered anonymously via Panama.

Lawyers suggest , therefore, that the typo domain Redtube.net recorded the data of visitors and this data could have made ​​available to third parties. Surfer calls up the page – owner has the IP address. It really is not rocket science.

In addition to this typo domain there is a suspected virus, which is driving the loose. Redtube.net About a page like the typo domain or similar pages, the visitor could have captured malware that just visited those pages in the background. One commentator in Lawblog by Udo Vetter tells that he does not have the original domain from Redtube in the course, but rather the typo domain.

Another interesting suggestion is to our readers Marko: he suspects that the malware could have gotten to mail addresses which have passed through the Adobe hack into the Internet. He got – even though he is not a customer of Deutsche Telekom – a phishing email a la “bill Telekom” in an address that he definitely has to be used only for Adobe account.

In Conlegi you deal with the warning also, they are called “innovative, but unfounded”. Here, for example, the question will be answered where the Abmahner have the data – the answer from Deutsche Telekom. Of course, not willingly, but by order of the District Court of Cologne.

The question is clarified, what is being thrown to the Abgemahnt – it is about not spreading and not directly to a download, but the caching of data. Following a decision of the European Court of this caching (caching) should trigger no claims of rights holders. Concerned should visit the Conlegi page and read, is relatively enlightening. I myself am assuming that many sufferers have paid out of shame, perhaps, so that the wife / girlfriend / parents heard nothing.

I once my domain Redtube – looked at Alexa – not the typo domain. Ranked among the 89 most popular Web sites in Germany, German users make 5.4 percent of users from – Germany thus occupies rank 4 in the Redtube visitors. Average time that visitors spent six minutes on the side that suffered a nasty slump in mid-2013.

Anyway, I press all those affected fingers crossed and hope for enlightenment. Should you get further insights, then we like to send a mail.
