Subject Google Removes .CO.CC Subdomains Over Phishing, Spam Concerns | threatpost

interesting!...
In a rare and sweeping move, Google has removed all of the sites hosted 
on .co.cc domains from its search results, saying that because such a 
large percentage of the sites on that freehosting provider are 
low-quality or spammy, they decided to de-index all of them.

The .co.cc domain is well-known in security and anti-spam circles for 
being a favorite spot for phishing and spam domains, but there also are 
legitimate domains hosted there.
