On the Internet, the exploitation of vulnerabilities specific to country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) registries has become an increasingly common problem. Today at RSA, Scott Charney, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Trustworthy Computing, announced availability of our new Microsoft Country-Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) Registry Security Assessment Service to help registry operators find and fix security vulnerabilities before they are exploited. The service will be available at no charge to registry operators. Read more about this free new service on our Microsoft Security blog post.
