Domain name holders suffer from phishing

Phishing is a form of Internet fraud, using a false (but identical) website. Especially banks are affected. As a user you get an email stating that, for example, you should check your login details on the site. That site is not the real site of the company, but a copy. The unsuspecting user logs on with his password or credit card number. With this information the fraudster obtains this sensitive information and no doubt will use it immediately.   

The Canadian domain registry authority (CIRA) is currently being plagued by phishing. Holders of a Canadian domain name received emails with pictures of the official CIRA website, asking for personal information such as credit card information. Domain name holders please be forewarned!
