Submission + - Fight Fraudulant Disaster Domains

UnderAttack writes: "The SANS Internet Strom Center (ISC) setup a web page listing about 500 domains that use keywords related to the Virginia Tech shooting. Turns out that most of them got registered just the last 2 days. While some are used for innocent purposes, others are used for fraud. The page allows everybody with an ISC or DShield account to help categorize the pages. The ISC did the same after Hurricane Katrina, which spurred a lot of these scum-domains."
