Every day more than 15,000 new malicious websites pop-up on the web. They exploit the infrastructure of the Internet, causing $43 billion in damages to consumers, business, and service providers.

To help registrars, registries and hosting companies identify online scams faster IQ Abuse Manager and Scamadviser have joined forces.

LG Forsberg, CTO of iQ explains why the cooperation with Scamadviser is unique: “Our abuse feed already includes a multitude of sources reporting on many types of malicious behaviour like phishing, malware, botnets and spam. However, the number of scams where consumers and businesses lose money to actors not delivering products or services or in other ways scam consumers of data or money is growing at an exponential rate. Scamadviser’s data is unique in that it can identify these kinds of cybercrime.”
