A spoof web-site replicating the content of the offical MI5 site has been set up using a set of swear words for its url.
The website replicates the content, navigation, look and feel of the MI5 site but with a highly expletive website address.
The website was registered to a Tristan Santore. When Computer Weekly rang the owner, he said that he had set it up as a joke using a virtual host and that the Mi5 content on the spoof website was not stored on a server.
Jey Heiser, an analyst with Gartner, said that protecting repuatations online was something that businesses will increasingly have to deal with as communications online grows.
