Missing Dot in Email Address Could Be a Costly Mistake

This newly uncovered scheme, targeting the all-important dot in corporate communications systems, can route email into the hands of scammers, giving them any and all confidential information that the messages contain.

The scammers' key tool is a "doppelganger" domain, an Internet address that is spelled identically to a legitimate site but is missing the crucial dot, typically found between what's known as a subdomain and domain in the address.
