Internet Security Threat Report 2014

We regularly receive notifications here of new Intel domains that come into being. Imagine our surprise, then, when we heard of a new one called Intel-Store, seemingly owned by the Intel Corporation, which looks startlingly like another site called AMD Athlon we noticed two weeks ago. (See AMD Athlon a struggle, a game: it's all Geek to us) Indeed, the resemblance is so startling that alarum bells ought to be ringing somewhere. Both are Network Solutions registrations. The "AMD Athlon" site was not registered by AMD, it appeared, and although the Intel Store one looks like it was registered by the corporation, we had our doubts. AMD Athlon, as we reported two weeks ago, is registered to Pattishall McAuliffe of South Wacker Drive, Chigago. Intel-Store.COM seems to be registered to Intel, checking the WHOIS server. So what gives? Will Network Solutions shortly be selling Intel Pentium IIIs and AMD Athlon K7s? ®
