3 Big data security analytics techniques

Intel today found itself pushing AMD products over the Internet. This was via the Web site intel-inside.com –- originally a hardcore porn site hiding behind the Intel name. Earlier this month Intel got the lawyers in to sort out the cyber-porn masquerading under its squeaky clean trade mark. The owners of the site then in turn masterminded a plan to bribe Intel into handing over loads of wonga to buy back the name. The registered owner of intel-inside.com, Thomas Puntman, put the domain name up for sale on EBay, asking a cool $400,000 for the URL. Intel's legal firm were no doubt working around the clock to crack this one. Today the intel-inside.com Web site was displaying the following message: "21 October '99: Ebay wrote today after 25 Bids up to $3000,- and 6 Days to go: Dear Intel-Inside, We regret to inform you that your auction: 182577329 Domain for sale www.intel-inside.com has been ended at the request of Intel, a member of eBay's Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program". Yet the cyber squatters managed to have a final pop at Intel. At the bottom of the Web page today was a link informing readers to Click Here for "The best processors". And what did the link lead to? AMD's Web site, of course. ® Related Stories Porno cyber squatters target Intel
