.COM is riskiest top level domain

Posted on Sunday, October 31 2010 @ 00:15:55 CEST by

A malware report by McAfee reveals .com is the riskiest domain, as 65 percent of all risky sites discovered have a domain name ending in .com. The riskiest country domain is .vn (Vietnam), while .jp (Japan) is the safest country domain for the second year in a row.
While .COM is the riskiest top-level domain, the riskiest country domain is Vietnam (.VN). 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 at GoDaddy) and .TRAVEL ($89.99 at Moniker) 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?

“Last year Vietnam’s .VN was a relatively safe domain, and this year it jumped to the third most dangerous domain. Cybercriminals target regions where registering sites is cheap and convenient and pose the least risk of being caught,” said Paula Greve, director of web security research for McAfee Labs.
