Experts call for phishing domains to be quarantined
F-Secure is calling on the industry to proactively deny the registration of domains clearly destined to become phishing sites
It notes a recent registration of 'signin-ebay-c.com' with registrar directNIC, which is currently being run as a phishing site. Contact details for the domain are an anonymous gmail address and a phoney phone number: 123142311.
Strato, which recently launched a domain-only service into the UK said that it found there was a "demand from Asian companies that want to register domains in the UK."
The company does investigate the provenance of domain applications it receives, according to chief technology officer Rene Wienholtz.
"We take measures to find out when the customer orders - we call every customer to be sure that the phone line exists," Wienholtz said.
