Submission + - Walmart Schooled: Basic Online Security (ghettowebmaster.com)

Being the sweetheart that I am, I went ahead and grabbed a couple of them: wwwwalmartmoneycard.com and almartmoneycard.com. And, I linked both of them to the correct web address and a blog entry explaining all the evil evil bad bad things I could have done with them. I'm not positive but I think this is the first time anyone has used a typo domain in a way that could be argued as "fair use". So, I'm not giving them up."
