Just wanted to point out that the President of Indonesia’s website
, presumably under guidance from IT know-it-all Roy Suryo
, has and .info domain name.
So does the Jakarta Foreign Correspondent’s Club, for that matter. LOL.
New report identifies dangerous Web domains

When surfing the Internet for safe websites, not all domains are equal.
Companies that assign addresses for websites appear to be cutting corners on security more when they assign names in certain domains than in others, according to a report to be released Wednesday by antivirus software vendor McAfee Inc.
McAfee found the most dangerous domains to navigate to are “.hk” (Hong Kong), “.cn” (China) and “.info” (information).
Of all “.hk” sites McAfee tested, it flagged 19.2 percent as dangerous or potentially dangerous to visitors; it flagged 11.8 percent of “.cn” sites and 11.7 percent of “.info” sites that way.
A little more than 5 percent of the sites under the “.com” domain — the world’s most popular — were identified as dangerous.
