Phishers Now Targeting Domain Registrars

Edward Falk writes on CircleID:

This is an issue of some concern and should be watched carefully: phishers are now trying to get passwords of domain registrants (domain owners). Currently, correspondents inform me that GoDaddy is the target, but there’s no reason to think the phishers won’t expand to other registrars.

Normally, phishers go after bank accounts or other financial information, or sometimes the online accounts of users so that they may send spam.
