Look-alike domain registrations on the rise. Cybercriminals register millions of new malicious domains each year, targeting clients, employees or partners of major organizations. A crucial part of your digital security strategy needs to be monitoring your company’s domain presence. But legacy tools (scripts) can make your SOC analysts and security teams puzzled. Manually grading and filtering results—and defining false positives—entirely may be seen as time-consuming.
Domain fraud is an easy and cheap attack method used by various threat actors. Privacy options allowed by most registrars and regulations like GDPR have made it easier to remain anonymous. Fraudulent Domains enable threat actors to perform a wide range of attacks such as wire transfer fraud, phishing and scams. Like many of today’s most common cyber threats, domain fraud targets humans rather than machines. Threat actors utilize social engineering tactics to scam people by posing as a legitimate domain.
Machine learning algorithms allow SOCRadar to analyze a vast collection of domain data to unveil lookalike domains. At the same time, real-time alerts will enable you to get notified before your domains and SSL certificates are expiring keeping your digital presence secure.
SSL certificates are not all the same. Domain Validation (DV) SSL Certificates do not do any identity verification. The Certificate Authority (CA) just send a confirmation email to the threat actor who owns the domain for which he/she requested an SSL Certificate. Then the malicious website gets an HTTPS link and a padlock waiting for its victims.
SOCRadar not only analyzes registered domain names for fakes and look-alikes but also tracks them whether they get an SSL certificate. That can also be a significant sign of attack initiation.
One-click on the SOCRadar incident dashboard is enough to initiate takedown requests without any additional burden to security teams. SOCRadar provides takedown services for phishing, malware, social media, mobile apps, and brand abuse sites.
