MalwareMustDie, NPO, during its research activities, is following the process of suspension malware bad domains as important milestones in malware fighting steps. is also publicly releasing some of suspension domains in the "Operation Tango Down" [What is TangoDown?] as a public announcement.

The current report is a fast and successful suspension process, as a good coordination between members who spotted, analyzed & reported the threat, to our PiCs in Tango Team (thank's to ‏@S with @CL for the hard work) and the related registrars who help us with the GREAT cooperation for the swift follows and banning further registration procedure process (blacklist) accordingly. We have a much better pace in suspending process (less than 18hrs), even right before weekend, as a good lead time reference for future cases.

Following is the report detail, with noted: is not aiming for the analysis details (we have a lot of similar case analysis in our blog already) but more to be a cybercrime-evidence purpose, with all of the materials posted are to be utilized for following legal process.
