Charlatan - Conbis Plagiarizes Content for their Blog

Sun Jan 1 17:19:19 CST 2012

The India-based company Conbis is obviously new to the world of security. Not only is their "About Us" page (Screenshot) full of Lorem Ipsum and fake names such as 'John Doe' and 'Frank Gold', but their two "Services" offerings (Screenshot) have no content either. Worse, the only real content they provide is entirely plagiarized.

The Plagiarism

The following table provides ten examples of Conbis blog content taking material from other sources and reprinting it in full (100% of the blog entries we checked). Not only is the material used in full, there is no indication of the original author or publication. Instead, each blog appears to be written by 'Jane Agarwal' instead. This shows willful infringement of copyright and inexcusable plagiarism.
