ICANN's Ten Worst Domains ICANN

Yesterday at ICANN 58 in Copenhagen there was session on DNS Abuse Mitigation:

The Cross Community Topic Discussion proposed by the GAC Public Safety Working Group will focus on ICANN's Efforts, based on answers to questions in Annex 1 of Hyderabad Communiqué with expected contributions from ICANN's SSR Team and Contractual Compliance.

In one of the talks, ICANN staff talked about the new Abuse Data Analysis Platform, with an example with live data, including the ten worst gTLDs, ranked by the percentage of the TLD's names that have various abuse indicators (click on the picture to see it at legible size):


The average abuse score is 0.50 for all TLDs is, and the winner is .SCIENCE with a score of 62.25, meaning a majority of all of the registered names are used for abuse. The tenth is .MEN, where only 1/5 are evil.

None of these numbers surprise anyone who's been following the abuse numbers, but it's nice to have this highly credible confirmation.

Of course, it remains to be seen what if anything the registries and ICANN will do about it.
