Okay, so I completely ruined what used to be a great Rod Stewart song - but it's been worth it. I was alerted by my friend Dee Hughes over at Freeware Home, of a rogue domain one of her visitors came across during a Google search for Outlook Express that led via the Sponsored results (surprise surprise) to expressdownloadz.com (see left).
She asked if I could dig up anything on this domain as she'd not found any contact information or anything that would help her take it down. Naturally I offered to help (I do love exposing these scheming wan**rs). Off I trotted to expressdownloadz.com, and low and behold, instantly identified the type of scam, and thus, how to track it.
expressdownloadz.com is identical to thousands of other itty bitty phishy sites out there, and it's stats are as follows;
