I'm not sure the site is authentic. Look at the registration date:

A writes to Cryptome 23 July 2008:

regarding the supposed dragan website, is it really a coincidence that it
expires 22.09.2009 - was it registered yesterday for 1 year?

A quick inspection of the HTTP headers show us that my request for his face:

GET http://dragandabic.com/dragan-dabic.jpg HTTP/1.1

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0

Gives this response:

Last-Modified being the timestamp from the file on the server.

And that it's registered to an obvious front for what looks like a
registrar service, but whos webpages
are all full of google ads for other registrars?

and as a final correlation for the theory of the whole thing being put
together yesterday:

$ host -t soa dragandabic.com
dragandabic.com has SOA record ns1.dreamhost.com. hostmaster.dreamhost.com.
2008072202 16220 1800 1814400 14400

That's when dreamhost last edited the dns zone, 2008 07 22. And it was
modified twice before on that day too - hence the "02" at the end, instead of
"00" which would be the first edit of the day.


A blatant hoax and nothing else.
