Unknown stole the domain of the frozen youth edition of FurFur. Now in his place articles on potency and gardening

The owners of the online magazine attracted lawyers.

Unknown persons took over the domain “furfurmag.ru”, which originally housed the first version of the popular in early 2010, the online youth magazine FurFur. Instead of the archive of publication of the publication at this address were notes of other unidentified authors, noted the editors of the Telegram-channel “MediaScripts.”

The first note on the site “furfurmag.ru” in its current form (“Reasons to start traveling”) is dated March 31, 2018, and the last one (“10 Ways to Make a Working Day Pleasant”) – April 9. The site also published texts on improving potency, mulching soil and men’s ties.

According to the Internet Archive, on November 30, 2017 the domain “furfurmag.ru” still redirected visitors to the main version of the publication – “furfur.me”. On the record of February 16 this edition already contains the publication “Simbirsky Courier”. There it was also on March 30, although two weeks before this, the address was again redirected to “furfur.me”.

According to the Ru-Center whois service, the domain “furfurmag.ru” was registered and delegated to an anonymous private person on February 7, 2018 for a period of one year. Other details of registration service does not.

In conversation with , the publisher of the media holding Look at Media, Aleksey Ametyov, said that he already knows about the hijacking of the “old and backup domain”.

This morning we noticed that some cunning guys made a site on a domain similar to the domain of the Furfur project. Lawyers and developers are already looking for them. I hope this parody quickly disappears.
