  • Develooper.com using SURBL data to block spammer domains in the Metamark Shorten Service

    April 3, 2004

    Ask Bjorn Hansen of develooper.com is using SURBL data to block spammer domains in the Metamark Shorten Service URI shortening and redirection service. This is the first use of SURBL data to prevent abuse of a redirection site that we've heard of! Great going! Ask explains his motivation as: "I mostly did it to make it less likely that I'll have to deal with abusers of the service manually. Hopefully the other redirection services will realize that benefit soon as well."


SURBL Data Feed Request

SURBL Data Feeds offer higher performance for professional users through faster updates and resulting fresher data. Freshness matters since the threat behavior is often highly dynamic, so Data Feed users can expect higher detection rates and lower false negatives.

The main data set is available in different formats:

Rsync and DNS are typically used for mail filtering and RPZ for web filtering. High-volume systems and non-filter uses such as security research should use rsync.

For more information, please contact your SURBL reseller or see the references in Links.
