ICANN says new gTLDs did not cause data breaches

CSO reports that an ICANN spokesman dismissed accusations that the recent growth in the number of generic top-level domains has caused data breaches. There are now more than 700 top-level domains such as .meme, .guru and .blog. The number of TLDs has exploded only recently -- between 1985 and 2012, the number of TLDs grew slowly, from five to 22. According to critics, the recent growth has been a windfall for cyber criminals.
