Domain Hijacking at Google by Meta-Refresh

Many of you know the name Marcia from the forums, but I bet many of you did not know Marcia had a blog named MarciaHoo. Early this morning, Marcia posted a case of what is called a domain hijacking, but this time through the use of a meta-refresh. Yes, old school, but still an issue, as Marcia points out.

It seemed as if Marcia had doubts about pointing out such a case, but I think even the "spammers" in the industry, are fed up with this hi-jacking stuff. As she said in her own words, "I�ve deliberated about whether to post this publicly, but it has to be done." Marcia recounts how she found the hijacked domain name, I am sure it will make an interesting read for many of you.
