15 malicious domains and websites of Indian origin, have been banned by Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG). The group cites that these domains and websites were being used by hack-for-hire groups in attacks targeting users worldwide.

The company, through a blog post, warned users about the phishing threats these domains pose.

Phishing is an attack that attempts theft of personal information, through dummy or fake websites that pose as legitimate counterparts.

These phishing messages have ranged from targeting specific government organisations to Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts to Gmail accounts. Google has provided use-case examples of the hack-for-hire ecosystem prevalent in India, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Here's the list of India-linked domains that have been banned:
