Afinidad journal is hijacked

User Rating:  / 11

The journal “Afinidad” (ISSN: 0001-9704) is hijacked by cyber criminals. I found this journal hijacking in December 2013, when they have just registered the fake domain and sent call-for-paper to the academia.

Counterfeit website: http://www.afinidad.org 

Legitimate journal: http://www.aiqs.es/catala/afinidad.asp 

I should add that a valid link from Thomson Reuters to the authentic website is available/or added recently (last visit on June.12.2014) (last visit on June.12.2014).

The image below shows an screenshot of the hijacked journal
