Phishing attacks against registrars

You may have heard that many high-profile domain registrars are being targeted by a massive phishing attack against domain owners.

We have received reports that some of those attacks are using Tucows branded emails to target some of our resellers and possibly end users all over the world. The fraudulent emails claim that a particular domain name has been suspended and ask users to click a link. domainabuse@tucows.com.org, domainabuse@tucows.com.info, legal@tucows.com.em and domainabuse@tucows.com.net are being used as “From” and “Reply-to” addresses.

We are asking all OpenSRS resellers to be extra vigilant of these fraudulent suspension notices. In case you or your end users receive an email from tucows.com.org, tucows.com.info, tucows.com.em and tucows.com.net:

– Do not click any links
– Do not reply to the email
– Do not call any phone numbers listed within the email

We strongly encourage all resellers to communicate this information to their end users.

If you have any questions or concerns about this issue, don’t hesitate to contact our support team at help@opensrs.com.
