Registrars - Rogues and Champions

Postby Red Dwarf » Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:40 pm

    Registrar compliance rates

    Some registrars have been quick to distance themselves from Internet pharmacy fraud. They suspend services to registrants of domain names that are clearly being used for pharmacy fraud. They are the champions.

    Then there are those other registrars. You know the type. They turn a blind eye and a deaf ear when they are notified of domains used for fraud. They put up all manner of lame excuses - like "there is not enough evidence", or "we are just the registrar, not the hosting site", or "we would need a court order", or "complain to the police" - just to avoid acting responsibly.

    Then there are the in-betweens, those registrars that are part of the way to acting responsibly, part of the way to protecting innocent victims from fraud, but have yet some way to go to join the ranks of the champions.

    Based on experiences over the past 12 months, we have compiled a table showing who are the rogues and who are the champions. We show the number of fraud domain names reported, the number the registrars have suspended, the percentage compliance, and the number of fraud domain names still live and defrauding innocent victims.

    The champions are shown in blue, the rogues are in red.

    Looking at the compliance rates of the most abused registrars, we see one Russian registrar accounts for most of the fraud domains, followed by TUCOWS in Canada, PDR (owned by Endurance Domains) , then BIZCN in the People's Republic of China

    These graphs show how many are left to suspend at October 6, 2015


    INCLUDING RUSSIAN:

    Over 80% of the Eva pharmacy web sites are registered in Russia, and over 10% in Germany..


    EXCLUDING RUSSIAN:
    Image
    Key-Systems has the most fraud domains outside of Russia, followed by BIZCN of China and Public Domain Registry.

    Over the past year most international registrars have been diligent in cleaning out the frauds from their stable of registrations. Russia has been the safe harbor where the miscreants have been made to feel welcome. BIZCN in China has been slow to respond over the past 4 months. Key-Systems in Germany have recently refused to take action, and are becoming the second most abused registrar as a result.

    Since the beginning of this Eva Pharmacy campaign in December 2012, various registrars have been abused by these cyber-criminals.
    Here is a list showing how many domains have been suspended in response to requests. Although Russian registrar R01-Ru features
    near the top of the list, it should be noted that the vast majority of their thousands of suspensions have been at the one year expiry
    period. They do not suspend these domains on request, allowing them to exist for a full year. Some of these registrars have been
    abandoned by the Eva Pharmacy team, presumably because of their consistent suspensions.

    6297 NETLYNX, INC.
    5357 R01-RU
    5237 TRUNKOZ TECHNOLOGIES PVT LTD.
