Mobile application security vulnerability report

Updated Redhorn Inc -- a small Internet service provider based in New Hampshire -- has registered the domain trenchcoatmafia.com. It was registered on the same day as the horrific shooting in Denver, Colorado, when two masked pupils -- who belonged to an extremist gang calling themselves the Trenchcoat Mafia –- shot and killed 15 high school students, and left a further 16 injured before turning their guns on themselves. The Register hopes that Redhorn took this swift action to block anyone else from registering the domain and creating a sick and morbid shrine to these murdering bastards -- and not for any other reason. At 17.17 BST we received this reply from an anonymous author at Redhorn. "I registered it to beat anyone who would want to make a profit at it. What happened in Colorado was a very sick and twisted thing. I knew there would be some bad people out their that would register it and put bad things up on the site. Im going to make it a site for people to get info on support for the people of colorado and thier sorrow and would appriciate any help or links to sites to help others. I do not plan on profiting from the site and wish to help others. Thank you." ®
