Security Advice – Tucows & OpenSRS Phishing

It’s come to our attention that some registrars are being targeted by phishing attacks against domain owners and registrants.

We have received communications that some of those attacks are using Tucows branded emails to potentially contact you. all over the world. The fraudulent emails claim that a particular domain name has been suspended and ask users to click a link. domainabuse@tucows.com.org is being used as “From” and “Reply-to” addresses.  It’s important to note the domain from the email. .com.org is not a valid domain, so be sure to check it’s authentic!

We are asking all of our clients to be extra vigilant of these fraudulent suspension notices. In case you receive an email from tucows.com.org:

  • Do not click any links
  • Do not reply to the email
  • Do not call any phone numbers listed within the email
