cybersecurityA new Blue Coat Systems survey has advised government agencies and commercial enterprises to safeguard their computer networks from 10 top-level domain names used by dubious websites, GCN reported Wednesday.

The company analyzed websites requested by 75 million users worldwide and found that .zip and .review emerged as the top two domains where 100 percent of websites were associated with scams, phishing, botnet and malware, Derek Major writes.

The survey cited .country, .kim, .science, .work, .cricket, .party, .link and .gq as the other eight domains with more than 96 percent of malicious online portals.

Blue Coat Systems listed .mil, .gov, .jobs, .ck and .church as the top five domain names with less than one percent of suspicious websites.
