Cartier recently decided to beef up its efforts in hopes of taking down sites and pages selling knock-offs of its products.1

Are other luxury jewelers2 and their customers at risk of the same threat? We sought to answer this and more with our in-depth analysis of potential look-alike domains and subdomains peddling counterfeit goods.

Our deep dive into the threat revealed:

  • More than 8,200 domains and over 5,400 subdomains possibly mimicking the legitimate web properties of Cartier, Nadine Ghosn Fine Jewelry, Harry Winston, Messika, David Yurman, Monica Vinader, and Van Cleef & Arpels
  • Less than 1% of the domains containing the top luxury jewelers’ names could be publicly attributed to the companies
  • More than 30 of the look-alike domains and subdomains have been dubbed “malicious” by various malware engines to date
  • More than 140 of the domains’ IP resolutions were deemed “malicious”
