Domain Phishing Alert – ICANNResolve claiming to be from the ICANN.org Resolutions Department

Enom and other registrars have issued an alert on domain name phishing scams. These are very similar to banking fraud scams. They ask you enter your domain name, your email address, your REGISTRAR and USERNAME and PASSWORD.. can you say "SCAM!"? Any sites asking you for your username and password should be an immediate red flag. Never fill in any forms where they ask you for this information. You have to ask yourself, "Why do you need it?".. in most cases the answer is, "So that I can steal all your stuffz!"

Here is what these phishing sites look like:

CIRA Announced New Privacy Policy in Public Whois

June 11, 2008

Cira has announced that it will end Free-For-All over personal information in the public whois search. About time! This is one of the biggest concerns of our customers. Most of them opted to go with a .com instead because you can purchase a privacy protection service for .com .net and .org domain names. This is good news for all Canadians wanted to have a .ca domain name.

“The new dot-ca WHOIS Policy puts Registrants first by restricting access to the private information of individuals while providing timely mechanisms for legitimate information requests,” says Byron Holland, President and CEO, Canadian Internet Registration Authority.
