hello

From today GA shows 60% traffic from an spam referral tkpassword.com

I have denied access traffic from this domain in my htaccess file and also set filter to exclude this domain, but still it showing as refferal traffic in live reports of GA.

 

Does any one know about this spam referral tkpassword.com, is this anything else or just a fake spam refferal ?
