Estdomains and McColo sentenced to death
After some hesitation, ICANN have finally decided to terminate Estdomains, who most people in the security industry regarded as a rogue registrar with unhealthy connections to organised crime.
Another piece of good news is that McColo has been knocked offline - it turns out that they were hosting a number of command and control servers for botnets plus a load of other unpleasant stuff. Spam levels have dropped by a massive two-thirds as a result. Nice work.. and a big thanks to all those involved!
