Abstract

At the time of typing the website address (URL), the users often make mistakes (typos) that are unable to visit the desired website. The situation becomes worse when the wrong URL pointing to other websites that do not wish to be visited by the user and may be made available for the aim of cyber-crime. This condition is called Typosquatting. Typosquatting is often used to carry out dangerous cyber-attacks. Research conducted will focus on the potential Typosquatting popular website domain in Indonesia based on Similar web and Alexa rankings. The purpose of this research is to determine the potential for Typosquatting attacks on the popular website domain. Potential observation for Typosquatting was carried out using the Domain Security Test owned by Immuniweb. The result obtained from observation is the number of active domains contained in Typosquatting potential domain has a percentage of 90 % and 26 % potential domain of Typosquatting visited by the users. The most identified Typosquatting model is substitution and addition, meanwhile the most widely used of the website purpose is Hit Stealing and Parking Domain / For Sale. The letters on the left and right of the type target letter have the potential to be more often cause typo if it is compared to the letters which are above and below the type target letter.
