Subdomain Infringement: An Unseen Threat

Subdomain Infringement: An Unseen Threat (Threat Intel & Info Sharing)

Subdomain infringement is the most dangerous threat your security team may not be detecting. Domain infringement is when threat actors use brand names within illegitimate web domains to imply affiliation with a brand to deceive end users about who’s behind the content they see on a site. They use this exploitation of trust as a lure to phish for sensitive data, distribute malware, promote scams, generate revenue from ads on parked domains, and drive monetizable traffic to other sites. Most brands are well aware of these risks and have an internal program in place to identify and prevent domain infringement, but typically, these only cover searching for infringement in parent domain names.
