.sg Domain Is The 10th Riskiest In The World
Hoohoohoo, I saw many bloggers like to use .sg domain woh……
THE next time you click on an unfamiliar website ending with .sg, think twice.
Spam masters are zeroing in on the .sg domain. Singapore was singled out as the 10th-riskiest domain out of 104 worldwide in a recently released McAfee report – and the rise of such sites, said experts, could cause Internet users worldwide to lose trust in Singapore websites.
The report warned that more .sg domains are being used for phishing and spam activities and to serve up viruses – almost one out of every 20 (4.6 per cent) tested by the security company this year.
The jump is spectacular – from just 0.3 per cent last year to 4.6 per cent this year.
In contrast, Hong Kong and Japan were noted for their “aggressive steps to clamp down on scam-related registrations” and stricter registration requirements for domain names.
