Cache of formerly stolen domains was returned to owner: 495.com, C5.net and more

Three times today we announced the return of stolen domain names to their lawful owners.

First, ShadesDaddy.com was returned to its business owner, after Verisign took urgent steps to yank the domain from the clutch of domain registrar, Ename.

Then, EXF.com was announced as no longer stolen, three months after it was taken away to Ename.

Lastly, a cache of several valuable domain names stolen in December, have been returned to their owner as well:

  • 495.com
  • 9985.com
  • 8870.com
  • 8832.com
  • ZRP.com
  • WMR.com
  • C5.net
  • XY.net

Their domain owner mentioned that the long process of reversing the transfer was finally agreed upon between the losing registrar, eNom, and the gaining registrar, GoDaddy.

Domain theft rose to unprecedented levels in 2014, after a requirement by ICANN for Registrars to verify contact information of domains, generated a flood of phishing attacks.
