openurl.info's domain registration looks up to date...Registered to NISO
through 12-May-2010. Last updated 10-May-2009. I'm going to speculate (with
very little basis) that someone managed to hijack the DNS by pointing the
record's name server entries somewhere other than where they're supposed to
be. Hence the redirection to a fraudulent parking page.
