#domain was seized by the US federal authorities

Domain names and brands of pharmaceutical companies are often abused by peddlers of unlicensed or fake medications.

Since the onslaught of Covid-19, scammers target companies such as Moderna that produce medications to fight the virus, registering domain names that might be typos of the brand.

Remdesivir, sold under the brand name Veklury, is a broad-spectrum antiviral medication developed by the biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences. In late 2020, the FDA approved the antiviral drug Veklury (remdesivir) for use in adults and pediatric patients for the treatment of Covid-19 requiring hospitalization.

The domain was seized by the US federal authorities for violation of US and international laws.

What makes this domain seizure interesting, is the speed that the authorities acted with: was registered less than 30 days ago.
