hpHosts is bullshit

No, really. So, apparently my website was listed in hpHosts because I had an archived copy of PSYB0T on my server so that people could analyze it.  To get it removed, I was forced to remove that content.  What a joke.

What makes it worse is that the guy who runs hpHosts is involved as a contributor to DroneBL, which linked to the malware and specifically said it was an archived version.

He had the gaul to call himself a member of the security community, even though a quick google of him only reveals a bunch of posts on spyware forums and dnsbl mailing lists.  People like him are the reason why the security community needs to stop doing crystal meth.

Also, fun fact: hpHosts is hosted on a bespoke SOHO ADSL line.  Haha.

    Steven may be a Microsoft MVP, but that means nothing.

    The fact remains, he had no business listing my domains, and he did so anyway. Anyone who supports that kind of action is a fucking retard who needs to go play in traffic.
