IP Reputation

SpamTEQ’s IP Based Threat Feeds represent the cutting edge in the industry and are powered by the research and development done by The Spamhaus Project. Their feeds contain real-time data on IP addresses that are involved in sending or hosting spam, including hijacked servers and computers infected with botnet malware.

  • Spamhaus Block List (SBL) – IPs observed by The Spamhaus Project which are sending spam
  • Exploit Block List (XBL) – IP addresses of devices infected with malware, worms, third-party exploits or devices controlled by botnets.
  • Policy Block List (PBL) – IP addresses for end-user devices, such as home routers and IoT devices which email should never send mail.

The DNS White List (DNSWL) contains over 600,000 entries of good mail servers, including a growing amount of IPv6 entries, allowing customers to reduce the risk of false positives by publishing the outgoing IP addresses of mail servers in different trust levels. Used by over 100,000 organizations to improve their white listings and grey-listing practices.

“It is worth noting that those lists (Spamhaus Zen) didn’t have any false positives, yet still blocked more than nine out of ten spam emails based on the sending IP address alone.”
