Be wary of “double-V” domains



July 30th, 2007

Just like an F can be easily turned into a B on a particularly bad one-off report card, two Vs can look an awful lot like a W and scammers are taking advantage of this and registering scammy Microsoft related domains. 

Here are a few examples:

VVINDOWSUPDATE.COM
VVINDOWS.COM
VVINDOWS.COM
VVINDOWS.COM
VVINDOWSVISTA.COM
VVINDOWSVISTA.COM

Be wary of links sent to you in emails and IMs. 

(Thanks to Sunbelt Software for the heads-up)
