This time it’s risky .COM.
Dot com, eh?
It’s now “the riskiest, with fifty-six percent of all risky sites discovered ending in .COM”, according to its 2010 Mapping the Mal Web report, quoted by Security Week.
But while .COM is the riskiest top-level domain, “the riskiest country domain is Vietnam (.VN)”, says the post, going on >>>
Japan’s .JP ranks as the safest country domain for the second year in a row and .TRAVEL as the safest overall domain. It’s interesting to note that .JP (currently $89.99 …) and .TRAVEL ($89.99 …) domains are also some of the most expensive domains. Are cybercriminals getting cheap with other people’s credit cards? Or do the higher price make it more risky?
But guess what?
“Cybercriminals target regions where registering sites is cheap and convenient and pose the least risk of being caught”, says Paula Greve, “director of web security research for McAfee Labs” in the post.
No need to stay tuned.
