Is there some kind of real-time WHOIS for .COM (and friends) which
allows you to determine at least the corresponding registrar?

whois.crsnic.net?

the issue is that VGRS does not even allow a registrar to find out this information real-time. Other registries publish this information in the whois and also make it available to registrars through EPP real-time.

RRP and the VeriSign EPP implementation DO NOT allow a registrar to inspect other registrars object (though other registres do)

don't expect the powers that be to assist anyone in security issues.

the average length of a phishing e-mail spam last some 45 minues, com,net whois is updated ever 24 hours.
