Who ever they are

They are using a really bad way to get people on their site:

This is the agent-string they send: <SCRIPT>window.location='http://www.syncrisis.com'</script> (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; Maxthon;

  1. 456880121155451413458370#; (R1 1.5); FDM)

This will automatically redirect the browser of anybody viewing their webstats page to theit site. Now of course one could argue that any stats software that displays such agent strings unescaped is shitty software and people using it desrve no better. But please remind yourself that most of those people do not know zilch about escaping agent-strings. Practices like this just give the bet a bad image, and all for a short term gain of some page views. Shame.
