I never heard of this site before.  Looks interesting.  I am reviewing
the malware list right now, however, and this is the second entry:

007arcadegames.com digitalriver www.bleedingthreats.net/forum/viewtopic.php?forum=11	showtopic=9

I unfortunately wasn't able to pull up the web page it lists; it
comes up blank in Firefox.  The domain has hinky registration, probably
is a malware site.  But if it's hosted by Digitalriver, they're fairly
legitimate.  (There are considerably more spam problems there than 
when Al Iverson was the Abuse manager, but they're at worst light 

Which probably doesn't matter when it comes to listing the domain. :)
But I'd definitely send a note to the host, especially when the host
is a legitimate business that would be horrified to be hosting a 
malware site.  Hope this guy does that.
