A solutions question.
Hi Mr. Vijayan. Your article led me to read a few others as I was puzzled. QUOTE: "The domain shadowing issue is a challenging problem to solve with 100% effectiveness, Modi says. "But a mix of block [and] tackle techniques and anomaly detection can help in detecting and preventing domain abuse," he says." END QUOTE. Yet you and your peers point out how limited that is. Heuristics seemed to the most effective. I use DDNS illegitimately BTW. MITIGATION MAYBE? Two step auth is widely accepted and would be needed. Which the industry could not coerce everyone to use I imagine. Yikes. Even then you would need to constrain changing contact information in creative ways to avoid costs and address a global simple system tweak. Even that isn't strictly required if you carefully watch domains where the two step contact info changed. If you got cooperation. Would you?
