So are they saying the computer makes an error by requesting a domain and messing up the bit? Or, is the human making the error by typing it wrong? I see this all the time with domains similar to Google.com lol.

Ok that's what I was wondering. So these "bitsquatting" are pretty much rolling the dice or basically digitally fishing.

yes i believe some its something like 1 out of million times it happens. if you were to bitsquat a large site that gets hit billions of times a day. your site would get about 10,000 hits a day.

yeah so one of these things happen

    Antiquated or aging hardware and software
    Excessive heat or other extreme operating conditions outside system ranges
    Electrical surges, interruptions and fluctuations
    Defects in chips or other components

causing one number in a long string of binary number to switch from being a 1 to a 0 or vise versa
so like the letter a in binary is 01100001 and c is 01100011. so when you goto like facebook.com the website is converted to binary which is 01100110 01100001 01100011 01100101 01100010 01101111 01101111 01101011 00101110 01100011 01101111 01101101 im not sure if the . i converted to binary or not. which if some thing is over heating or not working properly it could send you to fccbook.com which would be this in binary 01100110 01100011 01100011 01100101 01100010 01101111 01101111 01101011 00101110 01100011 01101111 01101101 which is off by one bit. and could potently be dangerous site that could steal your username and password to your facebook or worse lets say it was your banks website.

I wasn't kidding I'm definitely down to register a domain and put tracking tools on it to see the traffic it gets.
