    I'm interested in this as I have been dealing with some targeted google proxy hijacks against my own sites, and it seems this practice is still being used to target sites and still ignored by google as it was a few years ago.
    It's an exact mirror of the website Have sent an email to the host already though, but so far no response.

    Looks like the same Google Proxy hijack problem we have going here. I added a few things in there at the end to help protect against this attack:

    Start by blocking the IP addressess of those sites in your htaccess.

    deny from
    deny from
    This guy has a lot of sites/webhosts and he'll probably move around when he notices his rip off site doesn't work anymore, so we'll need to keep an eye on him. Keep an eye on your logs maybe for fake google bots.

    Domain servers in listed order:
    The bafree stuff is hosted in yemen, and I found more mirrored sites hosted there under other names while I was looking into your site.

    From what I've read sending DMCA notices might not apply to this kind of content stealing and could possibly bring you more trouble.. Only one way to find out.

    Take a look at this webmaster world thread, it's a bit old but something to start with:
    Proxy Hijack - Now what should I do ?

    The best way to deal with this on a longterm basis is to get a good security setup on your site which can verify search engines and block proxies, scrapers, bots and fake googlebots etc.
