Warning: malwareabytes.com & hotpmail.com

Seems Malwarebytes have gotten themselves a fan, alongside the fans already out for MalwareDomainList et al. Just with malwaredomainlist2.com (which sporadically redirects via domains such as ask.com now by the way), this one is currently parked.

Does anyone else get the feeling that perhaps the dirt behind IOBit are somehow involved in this?

UPDATE1: I do see something they qualify for, but are not listed on. Neither iobit's site, nor their whois, gives and abuse@ address.

So they could qualify for http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/policy-abuse.php could they not?

But that's beside the point...

The whois for malwareabytes.com is nowhere seemingly related, except it is also out of Shanghai, and the postal code is close (200000 vs 200125).

If there is any relation to be had, it could be an employee of iobit doing it from home, and thus total plausible deniability is maintained.

I think going any further would be a wild goose-chase. However, this is no reason to not stay vigilant, as gosh knows what the triad holding iobit has in store.
