The suspension was implemented a legal ability stated in terms of the right of use of a .dk domain name. <a href="https://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/da/news/dk-hostmaster-suspenderer-et-dk-domaenenavn-brugt-til-svindel-med-e-boks-og-nemid" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Read more here</a>.</p> <p>This may indicate that there are systematic attempts to use .dk domain names for fraud with e-Boks and NemID in progress. DK Hostmaster looks on the matter seriously, and will be aware of any complaints that may come in.</p> <p>At the same time, we will encourage you to be extra careful if you receive a message from e-Boks and keep an eye on the sender and URL addresses.</p> <h3>DK Hostmaster's option for suspension of a domain name</h3> <p>As a provider of Internet infrastructure, DK Hostmaster does not have the option of suspending .dk domain names based on a complaint alone. However, DK Hostmaster may suspend and delete a .dk domain name after receiving a complaint clarifying that the following three points in the terms of the terms. 9.2 are met:</p> <ul> <li>The domain name is used in connection with obvious risk of financial crime, compromise of IT equipment, i.e., phishing and malware distribution, and / or content of a highly infringing nature, and</li> <li>The use of the domain name creates a risk of confusion with another natural or legal person's domain name, name, logo, trademark, or other characteristics, and</li> <li>the circumstances suggest not waiting for a decision from the Complaints Board for Domain Names or the courts.</li> </ul> <p>You can read more about the scheme <a href="https://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/en/complaint-about-website-content" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> 2022-04-11 Mon, 04/11/2022 - 12:08 http://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/1177 DK Hostmaster suspends a .dk domain name used for fraud with e-Boks and NemID http://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/en/news/dk-hostmaster-suspends-dk-domain-name-used-fraud-e-boks-and-nemid <p>DK Hostmaster has suspended a .dk domain name due to the risk of phishing and confusion with e-Boks and NemID. DK Hostmaster implemented the suspension based on an obvious risk of compromising IT equipment; a legal ability described in the terms and conditions for the right of use to a .dk domain name.</p> <p>The suspension was carried out on the basis of a complaint against the domain name in question. The domain name was used in connection with a website where personal information, credit card information and passwords were lured from visitors.</p> <h3>DK Hostmaster's option for suspension of a domain name</h3> <p>As a provider of Internet infrastructure, DK Hostmaster does not have the option of suspending .dk domain names based on a complaint alone.

A new provision has been inserted in the terms and conditions, which relates to DK Hostmaster's possibility to decide on suspension and deletion of a .dk domain name. The provision is used in connection with online violations, in cases where less intrusive measures by other actors are not practically possible. The new terms clarify DK Hostmaster's role as a result of a court ruling from the Danish Supreme Court.</li> <li>Correct contact information. In the new terms, the obligation regarding accurate contact information has been clarified. It has also been described how DK Hostmaster's control of the validity of the contact information takes place. This clarifies what is already stated in the current terms, and they therefore do not imply changes in DK Hostmaster's practice regarding contact information.</li> </ul> <p>You can see the four procedures concerning checking of identity <a href="https://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/en/procedures" title="procedures">here</a></p> <h3>DK Hostmaster as a last resort</h3> <p>The new possibility for suspension must be seen in the light of a court ruling from the Danish Supreme Court on who should handle illegal content on the web. Here the provision was that the infringer is the first to be ordered to remove content and then the technical intermediary, ie. Internet functionality providers. Only if these two options are hopeless or has proved insufficient can DK Hostmaster suspend and delete.</p> <p>In November 2021, DIFO launched a consultation on the new provision on the possibility of suspension. The incoming comments can be read in <a href="https://stats.dk-hostmaster.dk/pdf/public_hearings/hoering_vedr._nyt_vilkaar_for_.dk-dom%C3%A6nenavne_til_bekaempelse_af_internetkriminalitet.pdf" rel=" noopener" target="_blank" title="consultation">this consultation note (Danish only)</a></p> <p>All registrants of .dk domain names have been notified individually about the update.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2022-03-31 Thu, 03/31/2022 - 14:18 http://www.dk-hostmaster.dk/1172
