NO, this piece of scareware has NO WEBSITE. Those webpages are official webpages and unrelated to this stuff. If someone writes a virus named AmaZon would you believe that amazon.com is the website for this virus? Those 2 websites exists for years and this new scareware just used to have the same name. Those behind this stuff (in the meantime linked to someone in Russia) released the PC Defender a few years ago and now just named their new software MAC Defender.
There is no website for this 'company' or scareware. And of cause you can't contact those behind it as they obviously don't want to be reached by anyone (as otherwise the police would knock on their door pretty fast).
If Apple plans to play Whack-a-Mole with these guys, they’re in for months of misery. Just ask any Windows security expert who was around in 2003 and 2004 when Microsoft was learning a similar painful lesson. If each reaction from Apple takes two or three weeks, the bad guys will make a small fortune and Mac users can count on significant pain and anguish.
