Got this tidbit from Larry Seltzer: SpywareBot just bought the domain “” for $550,000.

According to a post today in DomainNameWire:

Afternic has sold for $550,000, making it one of the biggest domain name sales of 2006. The seller of the domain was, LLC out of Connecticut. The domain’s whois record is now protected by a privacy service so the buyer of the domain is not clear. The domain name is currently resolving to a page offering spyware and adware software.

Incidentally, while SpywareBot (also marketed under the name AdwareAlert) is not a rogue scam program or trojan in the class of SpySheriff, etc., it is listed on the SpywareWarrior Rogue/Suspect antispyware applications page.
