Although the Internet has not gone to hell in a hand-basket because of the New gTLD program, as many pundits and politicians predicted, it has tangentially caused a big security problem at ICANN as a result of the news that some ICANN staff members fell victim to a spear-phishing attack that gave security access to attackers. The statement from ICANN (in part) sent out earlier today reads:
“ICANN is investigating a recent intrusion into our systems. We believe a
‘spear phishing’ attack was initiated in late November 2014. It involved email
messages that were crafted to appear to come from our own domain being sent to
members of our staff. The attack resulted in the compromise of the email
credentials of several ICANN staff members.”
It will be important to see just how far the attackers were able to penetrate the ICANN system, hopefully it was just limited to basic e-mail information and addresses. Further, this is certainly an example of how phishers can compromise even sophisticated organizations with well crafted emails that look like the real deal and effectively use domains to entice users that they are from the actual entity. Using the DomainSkate system you can check on any suspicious domains and verify their origin, so if your employees or business receive emails of the sort please check their credentials before granting access.Buy Zoloft online from Canada Drugs, an online Canadian Pharmacy that offers free shipping on all orders of discount order zoloft. ost doctors recommend to buy zoloft because person who suffers from depression and does not treat it, can sooner or later receive other.
