Doxdesk Parasite Database is Offline and unavailable
http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/database.html

Doxdesk.com is one of the resources many of use for researching information on various types of malware via the site's Database of known parasites or goggle links. Now, if you link to the database you will receive the following message:

Information database

The parasite information database is gone for the moment. For more information about why I took this step see this site update.

I hope to make the information from it available in another form for anyone else to work on soon. Stay tuned for further developments. In the meantime you can find similar information in many other spyware database sites around the web now—though not always entirely reputable ones, so look out eh.

In regards to why in the above link, the site owner posted this on 2/05/06:

... Yes, I've finally given up trying to provide a comprehensive database of unsolicited commercial software. Sorry. There are a number of reasons for this...

Disappointing, to be sure. However, since he has posted his site under Creative Commons, I have duplicated the parasite database (by pulling it from archive.org) at http://www.spywarefix.org/DoxDesk/database.html. It's not the complete site, just the parasite DB and the rogues list, but perhaps it will still be useful. I will eventually integrate this into the SpywareFix.org framework (with proper attributions, of course), but for now, at least it's all still online.....
