CIRA - Important Security Advisory

CIRA Warns Dot-ca Domain Name Holders of Misleading Verification Notices Protect your domain name. Do not share your CIRA User Account Number or Password with anyone!

Ottawa, December 13, 2004 - The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is advising dot-ca domain registrants (holders of dot-ca domain names) NOT TO RESPOND OR REPLY TO ANY EMAILS requesting verification of CIRA User Account Numbers and Passwords.

CIRA has learned that an unknown party is attempting to obtain CIRA User Account Numbers and Passwords from dot-ca registrants by sending MISLEADING EMAIL NOTICES that appear to originate from CIRA. These misleading emails request that CIRA User Account Numbers and Passwords be provided to validate registrant information and prevent domain name suspension (inactivation). The emails originate from COMPLIANCE@CIRA.CC. CIRA's compliance email address is COMPLIANCE@CIRA.CA

If you have replied to an email requesting your CIRA User Account Number and Password, and have included your CIRA User Account Number and Password in your reply, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR REGISTRAR IMMEDIATELY to request a new CIRA User Account Number and Password. If you do not know the name of your registrar, you may obtain it by entering your dot-ca domain name in the WHOIS field at http://whois.cira.ca/public
