Domain Name Scam: A Digital Defense

Cyber attacks using domain names are commonplace among cybercriminals. These fraudulent domains are used for a wide range of attacks such as wire transfer fraud, phishing, counterfeit good sales, scams and other new attacks. Such bad actors use social engineering to trick people into believing their domains are legitimate. This method is particularly attractive as domains are cheap, easy to obtain, and most registrars offer privacy features.

Cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks states that over 70% of newly registered domains are marked malicious, suspicious, or not safe for work.

Hence, the eleventh episode in this series seeks to explore the ways malicious actors use domain names for their nefarious activities.

Our speaker is a Cyber-security analyst with experience in Software Development, Vulnerability Assessment, Penetration Testing – Network Infrastructure, Mobile & Web Applications and Threat hunting.
