.zip Domains Scams

Now that .zip domains are available to purchase anyone can buy them including cybercriminals. These domains can even include well known ones that cybercriminals purchase and then use them maliciously. Cybercriminals will probably start using all of their tricks like using .zip domains in their phishing scams, tricking you into thinking you are downloading a file and take you to a malicious site or have you download malware. Falling for these scams can result in you sharing your sensitive data with cybercriminals.


  • Always think before you click on links or download attachments. Look for red flags in emails.
  • Take a second and look at the domain, if it is a .zip it could be a scam.
