Online Website steals Warzone Website: 2/26/2018 00:56:27

Some website known as "Crazy Games" basically took the Warzone site and put it on to their own website. I don't know if this is breaking any laws or not. It might just be promotion for Warzone, or the Purchases within the Warzone website is sent to the creator of the website. The website having warzone is here : https://www.crazygames.com/search?q=Warlight

Thats all.


EDIT : The website also holds older version's of Warzone. I think someone should get the devs to investigate. Crazy games already looks pretty shady.

It looks like they've just got an iframe of Warzone. Should be trivial for Fizzer to at least partially interfere with (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2896623/how-to-prevent-my-site-page-to-be-loaded-via-3rd-party-site-frame-of-iframe) if there's an issue.

Kongregate wasn't an iframe though. It was Warlight embedded by Fizzer himself as a Flash application.

Sounds like clickjacking - can't check on mobile as there was an error while opening the page. Add the X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN HTTP header to the appropriate configuration file. Details can be found at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/X-Frame-Options.
Edit: other ways to secure websites using HTTP headers - https://geekflare.com/http-header-implementation/.

It still seems pretty harmless to me. It's stealing ad revenue, but so do people using adblockers. It's increasing the # of multi-player games on the site.

i don't know if that site is jacking that iframe or not but fizzer purposely did that various places. good chance that's intentional and he has some type of revenue sharing deal with them.

It is through an iframe element, I used Firebug and noticed this. Iframe elements show content on other sites on a different website. Unless specified in what's known as a HTTP header, a website will be able to be embedded in an iframe.
Other games sites that Warzone/WarLight is hosted on have only the core game. Crazy Games included the whole Warzone website.
