DNS Abuse

Session 1

This session was focused on the situation as it pertains to Africa.

A survey which was conducted on DNS abuse in Africa reported only minor attacks.

In general Cybercrime in Africa originates in Cybercafes and often utilizes pirated copies of Windows XP

Africa is now building the capacity to deal with DNS security. The community of DNS operators is just now being built.

Strengthening security is one way the region can help ICANN

It will help if tools are developed to make DNS more understandable

A plan for disasters (both physical and political) must be developed.

DNS crimes against women are an issue.
Assault against women (primarily harassment and stalking) is frequently perpetrated over the Internet.

Session 2

There is much concern about the recent talk of the lack of security.
Nominet and the ccTLD operators are very concerned about Internet security

Britain has been working to remove illegal sites.

Many .fraudulent UK sites were actually registered in Asia.

Speaker from the US Red Cross:

They use the Web to enhance their humanitarian work.

Whenever a disaster occurs, they have to commit scarce resources to fighting the flood of fraudulent sites that are instantly created to try and cash in on the situation
