On each of the thirtieth Internet address .ch ends are malicious Software to find programs. This shows an analysis of the 1000 most popular websites. The data of the Thousand most-visited addresses are taken from the Swiss registry for Internet Sites Switch and go back to July 2017. In the jargon, this addresses, Internet Domains hot.
The analysis shows that Since the beginning of the measurement, there are 54 controlled Domains, the malicious programs contain. You reach on a monthly basis, thousands and thousands of users around the world. The representatives with the largest Internet traffic hot Zer0day.ch and Arenabg.ch. These two services are globally driven by more unique devices – servers, computers, or cell phones – as, for example, Swisscom.ch.
The dangers when you visit such a malicious web site, are versatile: they range from possible infection with viruses, dissemination of harmful computer programs to fraudulent Offers, and websites, the target data of the visitor.
the were Analyzed .ch addresses with a method of the security provider, Symantec. Domains are classified according to certain criteria in one or more of a total of 84 categories. In addition to the categories such as "travel" or "Social networks" exist 11 which classify the Domain as potentially dangerous. You mean, for example: "Malicious sources" or "Phishing". Phishing is the Cyber-Criminals trying to enter with fake websites, E-Mails or short messages to personal data of an Internet user.
Some of the most dangerous Domains are already online. The operators have withdrawn from the network. Others offer illegal deals. Most of these Domains are addressed to an international audience and operated in a foreign country. They were connected with any fraudulent intent. For example, the already mentioned Arenabg.ch, a Russian-language Website. To the fact users can store large volume of files and share them with others. But who Arenabg.ch visited, and on the false left-clicks, loads it on his Computer malicious programs. Zer0day.ch from there, however, as a competition. You will come to the data of the visitors.
others know the operators not that they have malicious Code on your site: for example, if the contents have not been updated over the years. They offer intruders the opportunity to unresolved security holes to exploit, and to place their malicious software behind the facade. The digital photo will be transformed album into a potential source of infection for viruses.
The site Solodom.ch for example, the outdated home of a small IT company. According to Symantec's analysis, it was categorized the page as suspicious. One reason for this may be the behavior of eye-catching E-Mail. The Server of a small company could be Spam abused. The company has in relation to the demand, whether it is the security risk of your Website aware, of any comments.
The parsed Top-Thousand list is so meaningful, because the registry Switch on each called .ch address knows. Theoretically, it is also able to lock at the push of a button addresses. The risk could be eliminated by harmful web pages for the user. But so easily it can't make the Switch. By law, you may shut out only on the instruction of Melani (Reporting and analysis centre for information assurance, the Federal government), the cantonal police of Zurich or with a valid court order to place a web address. What websites are deleted, the Melani, or the police on the basis of its own analysis. So, for example, last year, were led 5000 closures of fraudulent websites.
The Problem: The police against malicious programs equipped sites, if the population of a lawsuit. And even if such a complaint is received, the operator of the Site 30 days to respond. And only after 40 days, may tilt the Switch to remove the Site from the Internet.
basically, it could also notify the Switch and the many suspicious Sites to the police. However, according to its own information, the Switch analyzes your Top-Thousand list, not in detail to harmful Domains. Switch media spokesman Roland Eugster says on request, by the publication of the list is to be increased, in the first line, the safety consciousness of the Swiss Domains, which are located in the Top Thousand. You don't serve currently as a basis for their own analyses. (Editorial Tamedia)
