Verisign: SiteFinder Isn’t Dead Yet

VeriSign to revive redirect service: Verigisn claims they plan to start SiteFinder back up again after giving notice. Wonder how ICANN will react?

“Speaking before an unusual gathering of technical experts in Washington, D.C., VeriSign said its own re-evaluation of its Site Finder redirection service found ‘no identified security or stability problems.’ When it was active, Site Finder added a ‘wildcard’ for .com and .net domains that snared queries to nonexistent Internet sites and forwarded them to VeriSign’s own servers.”
