"In fact, typo squatters and domain name speculators no
longer even need to host the physical web infrastructure for their
own web content or advertisements. Domain parking companies now
handle this, for a cut of the advertising profits.
"What’s more, some typo squatters’ sites may not
simply host advertisements whose profits go back to them rather
than to the intended site’s owner, but they may actually
forward the user to an alternative site with differing political
views. Worse yet, the real potential for future abuse of typo
domains may revolve around the distribution and installation of
security risks and malicious code, the potential impact of which is
evident in online banking, ecommerce and other business-related
online activities today."
