ICANN Lisbon: ICANN urged to cut phishing trawl with banking domain
Security watchers are calling on ICANN to adopt a new TLD to be used exclusively by registered banks and financial organisations. The proposed TLD – proposals include .safe, .sure or .bank – would aim to give consumers increased piece of mind that they are dealing with a legitimate financial institution while potentially making it easier to identify rogue sites. The idea has been in existence for some time, but the massive rise in phishing attacks over recent months has renewed interest.
