This is finally something new, and I retract my assertion that the new scientist got it wrong. Drilling through to actual evidence and details, rather than descriptions which match previous behavior, we have both http://www.usenix.org/event/leet11/tech/full_papers/Zhang.pdf (a little indirect with 'example.com', etc) and http://www.payne.org/index.php/Frontier_Search_Hijacking (with actual domains) provide detail on the matter. Cheers! Joe
I noticed that the payne.org link calls out the insertion of an Amazon affiliate code. Section 7 of the Amazon affiliate agreement (https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement) appears to explicitly prohibit payment for this type of traffic.
