Scammers using a Brazilian domain name have targeted customers of large
Australian domain name and hosting company NetRegistry, seeking usernames and
passwords in order to launch new malware attacks.
NetRegistry, which lays claim to being Australia's largest domain name
registrar and second largest web host, today warned its customers to ignore
emails being sent from the domain coras.com.br with the subject line.
The offending message asks that NetRegistry subscribers provide their
username and password in order to "verify a subscriber's profile" - and warns
that failure to do so would "render your email address deactivated".
