Boosting Domain Protection Strategies with Typo squatting Domain Intelligence
Constant monitoring of one’s domain portfolio and its related infrastructure is crucial in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Overall domain protection not only saves a company’s network from specific threats but also helps protect its clients and website visitors from attacks.
These are domains that look similar to an organization’s domain or brand name that threat actors can use to imitate the company.
Typosquatting domains may be used to make phishing emails appear more credible and authentic. For instance, a parent who sometimes purchase Lego toys would be more likely to believe in the
credibility of an email address like example@legoslegos[.]ru than one not containing the brand name “Lego.” As part of possible phishing endeavors, typosquatting domains also let threat actors create websites that look identical or similar to an organization’s official website.
