Default What is "dyrduhnd.com"?

Is that the same as this site? I was just flipping through and the domain name keeps coming up. Also, if I google "Catholic Answers" a bunch of "dyrduhnd.com" links appear. Anyone know what's going on?

Not sure, but according to this security site, it may be the source of a trojan virus called Trojan.Filurkes:

It is definitely not associated with Catholic Answers. This cropped up a few months ago and if I remember correctly, it was a live mirror of the catholic.com site with every message and every control duplicated exactly. It could well be a malicious way of collecting your login and password to the forums. It could also maliciously collect all the information you send over it. If someone participated in the forum using this address, their traffic would be subject to interception by unknown parties. Never give any information to this site. Please don't even visit it. You may pick up malicious Javascript or a drive-by download.

Naturally, please remember that your network traffic is ALWAYS subject to interception by unknown parties, but routing it through Russia makes it quite a bit more dangerous, instead of known ISPs abiding by US law here.

WHOIS information says this site originates in Russia:

Sorokin Denis Sergeevich (denissorokin@----.com)
Moscow
Moscow
Moscow,665965
RU
Tel. +7.-------------
Likewise, please do not send anything to that email address or call that number, it could well be a trap. In fact, I have censored them in my post. You may get the information on your own using a WHOIS client.
