EName has allowed to register websites that sell software that would have allowed users to spy on other people`s text messages, Warner said. The company also allows you to register domain names hosted on botnets or networks of computers infected with malware. Warner, who is conducting a research project on tracking spam trends, said both companies accepted domain name registrations from bad actors, which can be attributed to illegal activities and spam. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (iCANN) can put pressure on Xin Net and eName, Warner said. ICANN could warn companies that their domain name registration functions could be taken away from them because ICANN accredits them, Warner said. The two companies, eName (www.ename.com/) and Xin Net Technology (xinnet.com/), are domain name registrars. They sell domain names and related registration services that help find a website, said Gary Warner, director of computer medicine research in the Department of Computer Science and Information at the University of Alabama. “We really hope that the Chinese government will decide that it does not want this type of activity on its networks, and it will take appropriate action,” Warner said. Yet two years ago, the Chinese CERT had only three Anglophones trying to cope with a massive workload: the agency receives up to 9,000 abuse complaints a day, Warner said. But the Chinese government could act. Experts in the security community were assisted by Chinese spokespeople in their contacts with the country`s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Country`s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), Warner said.
Registrars also have the power to make a domain name permanently unusable, which is necessary in some cases to behead sites that are fraud or illegal activities. This means that fraudsters must register another, different domain name in order to continue operating a fraud page, which increases their cost. the 1st, 3rd, 6th and 7th of the list are linked to Afternic Fast Transfer. Aliyun sells standard transfer names. The rumor is more registrar will sell Afternic Fast – Standard in 2020. Some websites that host malware and are registered via eName have been active for 150 days, Warner said. This is an unusually long time, given the way most good registrars and hosting companies act much faster to remove malicious websites. I only use fast transmission. I found only the list of Afternic`s partners in the fast transfer network: www.afternic.com/domain-reseller-network This deviation is not recorded anywhere, even by the PSI.
It is difficult to automatically link the spam URL to the hijacking target. There is also an extra layer of pillows from the pharmaceutical manufacturer, as he can argue that his domain name was never sent as spam. The same people are usually behind spam and the site, Warner said. Xin Net`s unique policy can work well.” With eName, “we see an absolute refusal to cooperate with any legitimate form of abuse complaint,” Warner said. Xin Net will take minor action if it is harassed by a complaint, he said. Xin Net topped the list of the most abused registrars published earlier this year by KnujOn, an organization dedicated to the fight against spam. Last year, it reached the same rank. Perhaps ICANN could reduce Xin Net and eName`s ability to register top-tier generic domains such as “.com.” However, recent research by Warner`s spam team has shown that a large percentage of spam-related domains end in .cn, the top-level domain for China. Each country has administrative control over these high-level country code areas, so ICANN cannot remove those rights, Warner said.
