This "business" claims to provide anti-virus software but so many things about this company simply are not right.

A windows XP computer was infected and damaged by the software downloaded from
http://www.winvantivirus.com/company.php

I similar report found here reported the web address of http://worldantispyware1.com.
Buy checking DNS Name server records I found that both address are being served by the same IP Address

Both sites have a company page that cites flawed contact information.

Antivirus Software, Inc,


Great Marlborough Str. 72


London


SE12TU


GB

As far as I can determine using Google Earth this street in a Shopping District. And the address does not match to any building on the street.

The address of 193.104.22.50 of the server computer running these sites is reported to be at Latitude 23.1167 and Longitude 113.25 with corresponds to the island of Malta.
Why does a London business have multiple version of their own website coming from "Malta" - It much more likely the server hosting these sites is in China. That is where the DNS machine server the information about these web address is originating - and is much more difficult to falsify the location of DNS machines.

The IP Address of the DNS Machine is in China:

I tried calling the phone number listed [ 1.800.221.72.19 ] and I listened to answering machine for a copier business in Oregon.

What amazes me is how these guys can keep getting Merchant Accounts to bill Credit Cards.
MasterCard, Visa, AmEx should really get better at tracking these sham businesses that are complete un-contactable.
