VeriSign has made plans to shut down
its controversial Site Finder service
, which redirects mistyped and misspelled URLs to its own site, after the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) stepped in. "In a letter sent to VeriSign on Friday, ICANN CEO Paul Twomey told the domain name registrar that it had until 6 p.m. PDT Saturday to comply with a request to take down the SiteFinder service," reports CNET News.com
. ICANN is the nonprofit organization responsible for administering Internet domain names.
