The fake pharma site (welnessmedical.com) is hosted on 84.22.127.43 along with a bunch of other ones, plus some additional sites one IP over at 84.22.127.44:

Oddly, 84.22.127.43 doesn’t seem to be registered at RIPE. No matter, we know who the owner of 84.22.127.0 is:

It’s our old friends Cyberbunker again, who have registered the block with fake details. How RIPE lets them get away with this I don’t know. If you can, I recommend blocking the entire 84.22.96.0/19 range as almost everything here is pretty seedy. You can read more about Cyberbunker’s very dark grey hat activities over at Wikipedia if you want more information.
