1. Situation

Abusive domains are the main entry door for criminals to steal money from your business. It is not “just” about directing some users to a competitive website. It is about the reputation and survival of your business.

According to the Swiss Anti Cyber Crime Police, the main criminal activities are fraudulent internet shops (fake online shops), phishing or just re-directing traffic to competitive websites among others.

A variant of fraudulent internet shops (called the “fake clone shops scam”) is for that

  1. a criminal copies your shop on his server so that it looks like your shop. He fakes your domain www.my-shoe-shop.com to wwwmy-shoe-shop.com (just by removing the dot . it’s another domain).
  2. he advertises on google for your product, for example, shoes and directs the user to his fake shop
  3. user shop and pay for expensive products in the fake shop
  4. after having sold products for 200 000 USD, fake shop closes and runs with the money
  5. shoppers don’t understand that they have paid money to the fake shop. They ask for money back from you and write you a bad review.
  6. You don’t understand why shoppers complain that you don’t deliver the products because they are not in your customer database.

If you have such complaints from persons not in your customer database, you might have been a victim of cloned fake shops. But this is just an example of the typical behaviour of criminals. By tracking all domains, you can fight such fake shops on the day they open.

A new variant of phishing is that a clone fake shop is opened, for example, my-bank.com (instead of the real site mybank.com) and users are directed with email or SMS to the fake site. The user logs into the fake site with his password, and the criminal gets the user’s password and uses this password for criminal activity. Criminals can even break Two-factor authentication (2FA) by asking users to input a secret SMS code. This SMS code is used in real-time by an imacro bot to log in to the real mybank.com site and instruct a wire to the account of the criminal.

Other criminal phishing activities are that, for example, the criminal asks employees of your company to log in and change their password in a fake domain like yourcompany.outlook.com …. The criminal will be able to log into your system, read emails and even get access to your IT systems and might blackmail you.

There are countless ways you can seriously hurt your business. See more criminal approaches on the official page of the Swiss Police Department (https://www.cybercrimepolice.ch/)

2. What to do

A Key Trigger for criminals is to have a domain that is similar to your domain to deceive the customers to input some secret information or to pay money to them. Registering hundreds of domains is not a good solution as the criminals would find something which is not registered anyhow.

SOLUTION: Scan all domains and fight domains similar to your domain.
