A lot of malware victims end up in help forums because they were redirected to a bad site, or intentionally downloaded video codecs so they could watch such content.

The dialog informs that a codec is needed to view the video, this is where you should stop already before infecting your computer.

Hiding in the background waiting for an unsuspecting user to download the codec was a rogue, the link on its own produced an error.

Intercage back

Apprantly IP transit provider UnitedLayer has agreed to provide upstream service to Intercage after Intercage agreed to completely sever ties with Esthost.

Intercage, Inc’s website has a holding page, it looks strangely familiar…

UnitedLayer operates out of the same San Francisco colocation facility as Intercage and Pacific Internet Exchange (PIE).

Kind of reminds me of Lizards that give up their tail to escape.

Is anyone else feeling dizzy yet.

According to the most recent statistics over five thousand domain names were detected and ruthlessly suspended by EstDomains, Inc specialists only last week.

But the outstanding performance of hosting services is not the sole reason why EstDomains, Inc appreciates this partnership so greatly. Intercage, Inc generously provides EstDomains, Inc specialists with reports regarding discovered malware vehicles. As the main database for additional domain name management services is located in Intercage Data Center, EstDomains, Inc has the perfect opportunity to get notifications of the slightest mark of malware presence in the shortest time and take measures in advance.

In addition to the constant monitoring of its infrastructure, EstDomains, Inc (http://estdomains.com) has created a unique system that allows reveal direct malware sources along with potentially dangerous web sites.
