+ - Russian Domains Increase, China Cans Spam->

Submitted by jhernik
jhernik (1795638) writes "There has been a noticeable increase in Russian spam domains since China changed its domain registration requirements in 2009

Spammers have increasingly been moving their operations to Russian domains since China’s domain regulator introduced tighter rules in 2009, security researchers say.
The CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Centre) changed some of its domain registration rules. Now, applicants are required to submit a formal, paper-based application to a registrar that includes, among other things, a photocopy of the registrant’s identification.

At the time, some security researchers predicted the move would have the side effect of making Chinese domains less attractive for cyber-criminals seeking anonymity."
