Why is this forum domain informaction.com on a BAD host list at http://www.securemecca.com/ ?

Moving to Metaforum.

I don't think all parts of that list are maintained. Best guess just from looking at the context would be that informaction.com was formerly used as an ad server before Giorgio started using the domain. Anyway, I don't like guessing so do you have any suggestions how to quickly search through this lot?

From the .7z files (didn't look at the others):

Other then being listed there, in various formats, like:

Code: Select all

informaction.com has address 82.103.134.102

informaction.com      082.103.134.102      2014-06-21
informaction.com (WWW)      082.103.139.052      2014-06-21

082.103.134.102      informaction.com      2014-06-21

Thanks therube for checking that.

So we don't really know why it's listed, but it is definitely a false positive (it's not a "bad" domain by any means). Subdomains of a domain "information.com" used to be listed there, maybe the informaction.com entry it's just a typo?

Some searching indicates that the main author of that service does have an account on this forum but seeing that he hasn't used it in 7 years we can't assume he'd know if he receives a PM. Can someone please email him noting the link to this thread and asking him to comment?
