Akamai Finds 13 Million Malicious Newly Observed Domains a Month

Palanisamy said with existing domains having some history and reputation, identifying whether or not they are secure requires minimal effort. That being said, Palanisamy said there’s a challenge in figuring out whether the new domains are malicious or not.
