• Clean up of redundant zone files

    August 17, 2004

    We are cleaning up some of the redundant zone files in the SURBL rsync server:

    1. surbl.rbldnsd - going away, use instead
    2. *.rbldns - going away when no traffic, use *.rbldnsd instead
    3. surbl.bind - going away, use instead

    In all cases the replacement files use the preferred names, already exist, and have identical content. If you are using any of the old names, please change them to the new names.

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.
