What is corp.com and who owns it ? [RESOLVED]

As of 2020 the domain name corp.com is owned by Microsoft.

The domain name corp.com is considered a dangerous domain by security experts, mainly because of an issue with how Microsoft’s Active Directory feature worked in older versions of Windows. The online security website KrebsOnSecurity says that in earlier versions of Windows Active Directory had set “corp” as the default path, and many companies apparently started using the name without changing it to a domain that they actually owned. And that means whoever had access to corp.com could possibly intercept the requests coming in from these organizations, and steal sensitive data.

The original owner of the domain name Mike O’Connor purchased the domain over 25 years ago, he started auctioning the domain back in February of 2020 for $1.7 million. Microsoft confirmed the company has purchased the domain, but it wouldn’t disclose exactly how much it cost.
