A strange thing happened at Flippa the other day

ZFBot

Flippa.com has been in the domainer limelight recently, due to the notoriety of turning a deaf ear to removing listings of trademark domains.

However, something new popped up that might change the way that most domainers review live domain listings for sale.

At Flippa, a listing contains a link to the domain or web site for sale – in our case PSDToWebsite.net [Note: click on the domain link at your own risk.]

Upon visiting the web site, our antivirus software displayed an alert that the web site is infected with some type of trojan.

Checking further with DomainTools, we noted that several other web sites on the same server (21 total) were also infected by the same type of malware.

Reporting the auction to Flippa support returned nothing. Two hours later, the alert went away and only one web site continued to appear infected. All web sites are hosted in Palestine.

While this is not a Flippa-specific fault, it’s definitely an alarming incident that domainers need to be aware of. Install a quality antivirus software and keep your OS up to date.
