ICANN Phishing Email

We have seen an uptick in an ICANN phishing email scam recently. The emails being sent have the appearance that they are coming from your domain and are looking for you to verify the domain name registration, however an actual ICANN verification email would come from your domain name registrar.

Here is an example of the SPAM message circulating:

A few things to point out..

ICANN is spelled wrong as ICAAN

ICANN is not partnered with cPanel

ICANN does not have access to your hosting to place a link within your hosting account as the link is indicating.

Please do not click the links. If you do, be sure to change your password as quickly as possible.

Please also do not reply to the email as it is not going to ICANN.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our support staff @ support@olm.net or call us @ 877-220-5686
