[security-alerts] FYI: Most Junk Web Pages Traced to Just Two Hosting Companies


--Most Junk Web Pages Traced to Just Two Hosting Companies
(March 19, 2007)
Researchers from Microsoft and the University of California, Davis, have
published a paper revealing the companies behind the growing number of
web pages that exist merely to lure surfers to their advertisements.
The study found that most of the pages emanate from two web hosting
companies and more than two-thirds of the advertisements come from three
advertising syndicators.  Those behind the scheme often falsely inflate
the pages' search engine rankings.  For certain search terms, 30 percent
of results led to advertisement-laden pages.  Overall, 11 percent of the
1,000 search terms returned pages that were only advertisements.
