Thought I'd mentioned these here but apparently not ....

They aren't malware, but are phishing site's ...... IMHO, all RapidSwitch IP's should be blocked as they're a pain in the rear when it comes to filing complaints and actually having something done .... (@JohnC, you can see full details on this at MR). RP have also been identified recently by Olliver at SWW, as hosting malware on their IP range aswell (I'll see if he can drop by and post a few details as I don't want to re-post his info without permission as it's posted in private forums .... and of course, is disrespectful).

Durham was where I grew up until I left for Canada in '57 but the only thing that I remember it being famous for was the cathedral.
