Abuse Report

AFNIC renews its abuse detection and monitoring solution.

To allow gTLDs to comply with specification 11.3b of the ICANN registry agreement and its clarifications, Afnic is changing its Abuse report. In addition to measuring the quality of your assets (phishing, malware, botnets, spam, etc.), the tool now allows you to track potentially abusive operations on domain names.


Specification 11.3-b:

Registry Operator will periodically conduct a technical analysis to assess whether domains in the TLD are being used to perpetrate security threats, such as pharming, phishing, malware, and botnets. Registry Operator will maintain statistical reports on the number of security threats identified and the actions taken as a result of the periodic security checks. Registry Operator will maintain these reports for the term of the Agreement unless a shorter period is required by law or approved by ICANN, and will provide them to ICANN upon request.
