Fake PestPatrol Security Software

Continuing the rogue security software series I've just stumbled upon a fake PestPatrol site - pest-patrol.com (85.255.121.181) hosted at the the RBN connected Ukrtelegroup Ltd (85.255.112.0-85.255.127.255 UkrTeleGroup UkrTeleGroup Ltd. 27595 ASN ATRIVO), just like the majority of sites assessed in previous posts.

Where's the malware at pest-patrol.com? In one of these anecdotal cases, the way the people behind these rogue sites use the same template over and over again, and consequently forget to change the rogue software's name, in this case, not only is pest-patrol.com's mail server responding to antispycheck.com, but they've also uploaded a broken template.
