The company’s domain parking pages were accidentally blocked by an anti-virus software earlier this year
Oversee.net announced today that its domain parking unit DomainSponsor has entered into an agreement with Team Cymru, a specialized Internet security research firm and non-profit dedicated to making the Internet more secure by helping organizations identify and eradicate problems in their network.
Given the size and scope of its DomainSponsor traffic monetization network, the company sees itself in a uniquely advantageous position to help detect and identify potentially malicious communications to share via its relationship with Team Cymru to benefit the wider Internet Security Community.
According to Oversee.net’s CEO Debra Domeyer, the company “want[s] to support their efforts to help other companies avoid network problems caused by malware and to help users have a safer online experience.”
Earlier this year in May, an author by the name of EarlGrey wrote on Syndk8.com that Oversee.net’s domain parking subsidiary DomainSponsor had been “hacked” and was “spreading malware“. The report turned out to be a false alarm, as confirmed by Oversee.net’s VP of Marketing & Communications, Aaron Kvitek, and a comment posted by the original author. The company’s domain parking pages had accidentally been blocked by an anti-virus software and Oversee.net was able to work with the vendor to remove the block.
