Hackers using expired domain names to launch new malware attacks

Expired domain names are becoming the latest route for cyber criminals to find their way into the computers of unsuspecting users.

Cyber criminals launched a malicious advertising campaign this week targeting visitors of popular news and entertainment websites after gaining ownership of an expired web domain of an advertising company.

Users visiting the websites of the New York Times, Newsweek, BBC and AOL, among others, may have installed malware on their computers if they clicked on the malicious ads.

Bresntsmedia.com, the website used by hackers to serve up malware, expired on Jan. 1 and was registered again on March 6 by a different buyer, security researchers at Trustwave SpiderLabs wrote in a blog.

Buying the domain of a small but legitimate ad company provided the criminals with high quality traffic from popular web sites that publish their ads directly, or as affiliates of other ad networks, the researchers said.

New York Times spokesman Jordan Cohen said the company was investigating if the attack had any impact. « To be clear, this is impacting ads from third parties that are beyond our control. »

Newsweek, BBC and AOL could not be immediately reached for comment.

The researchers also found two more expired « media »-related domains – envangmedia.com and markets.shangjiamedia.com – used by the same cyber criminals.

The people behind the campaign may be on keeping a watch for expired domains with the word « media » in them, they said.

.Cloud domains are now on sale

dimanche 21 février 2016 @ 14:06 posted by Nicolas MATA

If you’ve been hanging on for the perfect domain name for your cloud computing, skydiving, or weather forecasting website, now’s your chance — you can now buy .cloud domain names. Major domain name registrars including 1and1 and GoDaddy are now offering the suffix for around $20 to $25, more than a year after the right to control the .cloud top level domain was won by Italian company Aruba.

Aruba — Italy’s biggest domain name and hosting company — outbid Amazon, Google, and four other competitors for the .cloud name in November 2014. At the time the company said it would offer the domains at mass-market prices, rather than try to charge exorbitant fees for cloud-based companies who might want a correspondingly named site. In a world of .co, .ly, and .pizza domains, .cloud isn’t exactly the most catchy name, but if you’re fast, you might still be able to get oldmanyellsat.cloud.

Cars Registry, a joint venture between XYZ and Uniregistry, today announced public availability of its domains ending in .Cars, .Car, and .Auto. Dealerships, manufacturers, and all other businesses can now register auto-specific domains on a first-come, first-served basis.

The global launch of .Cars, .Car, and .Auto follows a successful Early Access Period, where domains like V.Auto, AppleFord.Cars, Cox.Auto, and Exotic.Cars were registered. Manufacturer registrations include Lamborghini.Cars, Infiniti.Cars, Genesis.Auto, and Toyota.Auto. Domains like Michelin.Auto, BFGoodrich.Auto, and StateFarm.Cars were also secured by automotive businesses. Industry newcomers, including Apple.Car, GoogleX.Cars, and Alibaba.Auto, have also registered.

Auto-specific domain names give businesses an opportunity to establish themselves as industry leaders by securing short, geographic, and keyword domains like 1.Car, LA.Auto, and Hybrid.Cars for a standard fee.

« Businesses can now truly expand their reach. A Florida-based dealer group could dominate its market by showcasing its inventory on web addresses like Orlando.Cars, FL.Car, JAX.Cars, and Miami.Auto, » said Mike Ambrose, COO of Cars Registry.

Several automotive businesses have already begun using the new domains to stand out from their competition. Scholfield launched its new portal on Wichita.Cars, while STL Motorcars has rebranded to STL.Cars. STL.Cars is already a top search result for terms like « St Louis Bentley » and « STL exotics. »

Businesses registering a .Cars, .Car, or .Auto domain are also eligible to have their website migrated to their new domain at no cost: « The transition from STLMotorcars.com to STL.Cars by the Cars Registry white-glove team was extremely simple, and enabled us to maintain our search engine ranking, SEO, and emails in the process, » said dealership principal Graham Hill.

To register .Cars, .Car, and .Auto domains, visit www.Go.Cars or authorized retailers like GoDaddy.Cars, NetworkSolutions.Cars, Uniregistry.Cars, and Name.com.
