ICANN asks Demand Media for answers after HostExploit report

ICANN is asking Demand Media’s eNom division for answers following complaints from Internet security groups, says an IDG report.

The report says that eNom has come under fire following a “report from HostExploit, a volunteer-run anti-malware research group. According to HostExploit, eNom is host to an unusually large number of malicious websites and is a preferred domain name registrar for pharmaceutical spammers.”

ICANN is now looking into the matter Kurt Pritz, senior vice president of services at ICANN told IDG.

According to the HostExploit report, “some eNom resellers are violating ICANN rules by allowing customers to provide false Whois database information, not following ICANN deletion policy and generally not complying with their obligations as resellers.”
