Submission + - JotForm.com Gets Shut Down SOPA-Style (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: "In a post on the company blog, JotForm.com cofounder Aytekin Tank alerts users that 'a US government agency has temporarily suspended' the jotform.com domain. He explains that it is part of an 'ongoing investigation' of content posted to its site by a user. Although which user and what content haven't yet been disclosed, there is speculation about forms used for a phishing attack on a South African bank. JotForm hosts over two million user-generated forms, and uses software to block fraudulent accounts (65,000 so far), so you can see there's plenty of opportunity for mischief."

Submission + - JotForm domain shut down by US Secret Service (thenextweb.com)

lomedhi writes: Probably in response to phishers using JotForm's free form service, the Secret Service has seized jotform.com, denying access to 2 million forms created by 700,000 users. The Secret Service is unresponsive. Who needs SOPA?

The service is now available at alternate domains jotform.net and jotformpro.com, but changing URLs is a serious inconvenience to some. Many are paid corporate clients. Among other things, iPad and iPhone apps that embed forms will have to be re-approved by Apple.
