Web host for virus writers closed

Today we noticed that the infamous Internet resource, which has provided Web hosting services for a long time for the web sites of various virus writers’ groups and individual members of the underground is currently unavailable and not responding to requests.

We don’t have information that the host has been closed by the authorities and the contents seized.
