Security Announcement: Registrar spam

In the last week we have been seeing a lot of spam which seem to be coming from registrars. The most common one we have been seeing is:

ENOM, INC. <abuse@enom.com.info>‘ with the title ‘Domain —————–.com Suspension Notice‘.

Enom is a domain registrar which means that you can register domains with them and so receiving a message stating that domain names have been suspended is a little worrying. However, this is a phishing spam attempt meaning that the purpose of the email is to gather information about you and using it with bad intention.

What should I do if I receive a message like this?

  • Do not click anything!
  • Go to your website in a web browser: if your website is working then your domain has not been suspended
  • Check that you are receiving emails: if your email is working then your domain has not been suspended
  • Mark the message as spam.
  • If you are still not sure then please contact your hosting company and ask them to confirm.

What should I do if I have clicked the link?

Although at first look this spam looks like a phishing scam we have had some confirmation that the link in the email is an executable cryptowall malware.

  • Turn off your computer! Shut it down straight away. This will limit the damage that can be done.
  • Contact you IT company urgently and provide them with all of the details.
