No extra security measures for .be

The manager of the .be domain names, DNS.BE, took part in the commission Infrastructure for ICT security. DNS.BE is often criticized for not taking enough measures against phishing. Some crooks register domain names such as and pass themselves off as Citibank with the intention to rip off several Internet users. According to DNS.BE manager Marc Van Wesemael, it is difficult to fight such practices. However, he mentions the possibility to contact the CEPINA (the Belgian Centre for Arbitration and Mediation) when a domain name of a third party illegally refers to a brand or company name.
