Boom in Lookalike Retail Domains
New research into domains registered with a trusted TLS certificate has found lookalike domains outnumber legitimate retails sites by more than 4:1. In a study conducted by researchers at Venafi, suspicious domains targeting 20 major retailers in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, and Australia were analyzed. Researchers found over 100,000 lookalike domains that use valid TLS certificates to appear safe and trustworthy.
