Microsoft expands cybersquatter fight
The cybersquatters pursued by Microsoft registered Internet domain names such as winowslivemessenger.com and micr0soft.co.uk, the company said. Unsuspecting computer users often land on those sites after mistyping domain names, Microsoft said. The company uses a tool called Strider URL Tracer with Typo-Patrol to track down such domains, it said.
