Dot-cm Typosquatting Sites Visited 12M Times

Dot-cm Typosquatting Sites Visited 12M Times So Far in 2018 by krebsonsecurity.com

A story published here last week warned readers about a vast network of potentially malicious Web sites ending in “.cm” that mimic some of the world’s most popular Internet destinations (e.g. espn[dot]cm, aol[dot]cm and itunes[dot].cm) in a bid to bombard visitors with fake security alerts that can lock up one’s computer. If that piece lacked one key detail it was insight into just how many people were mistyping .com and ending up at one of these so-called “typosquatting” domains.

 

Thanks for the suggestion Jay!
