TOKYO (MacHouse) – After being kicked out of New York-based web hosting company Ezzi.net, the international cyber crime organization behind the fake anti-virus scan scam appears to have moved its Antivirus 2008 website to the Netherlands. The fake antivirus scan website hosted through the domain of antivirus-scanonline.com distributes a Window-based file that contains a Trojan computer virus known as Troj/FakeVir-BF. This organization also distributes a Windows-based malware title called Antivirus 2008.

The new IP address of the fake anti-virus scan website through the domain of antivirus-scanonline.com is 18.104.22.168. The website appears to be hosted by a web hosting company called LEASEWEB in the Netherlands. (Screenshot 02 shows web hosting company’s English index page.) Let’s see how long they can stay in the Netherlands. If you are a victim of this fake anti-virus scan website, you are advised to contact LEASEWEB and to make them aware that they are hosting a scam website. If 500 people write to them daily and urge them to shut down the fake anti-virus scan website, the web hosting company will probably be moved. (See Screenshot 03 for their contact page.)
