Dear Valued Network Solutions(R) Customer:
We’ve recently become aware of a phishing scam targeting
domain name customers of a small number of registrars
including Network Solutions(R). We wanted to alert you of
this situation. Phishing is the practice of luring
unsuspecting Internet users to a fake Web site by using an
authentic-looking e-mail in an attempt to steal passwords,
account information or other sensitive data.
At this time, we know that fraudulent e-mails are being
sent to some domain name customers, regardless who the
registrar of record is, which include links to sites that
look like networksolutions.com or other domain provider
sites; however they are fake Web sites. These e-mails are
attempting to capture login information. For more
information and tips on identifying phishing scams, please
visit our blog at www.blog.networksolutions.com/.
If you believe you have received an e-mail of this type,
have clicked on the link, and provided your login
information, we recommend the following for security
1. Log in to your account from the Network Solutions Web site.
2. Review your account information for accuracy
3. Choose a new password security question and answer
4. Change your password
Thank you for your attention to this message.
