New TLDs Not (Yet?) Attractive to Phishers

Extract: "Some of the new "restricted" generic TLDs offer an additional layer of protection against malicious registrations — with their verification requirements. The .ORGANIC domain, for example, is available only to producers of organic products and services, and to others who serve the organic community. Similarly, .NGO and .ONG will be available only to qualified NGO organizations. Few, if any, phishing criminals will pass the verification process, and most won't even try".
