Why use a block list of URLs?
People frequently ask: "We have a firewall, anti-virus, anti-malware, IDS/IPS, etc - Why do we need a block list of URLs in our proxy or router?"
That is a great question. First of all, it is certainly very important to have multiple trusted sources of intelligence and protection when it comes to Internet security. No single vendor can protect you from all current security threats.
Fraudsters are moving from attacks where spam messages include links to malware or the binaries themselves to more advanced threats. These include the usage of exploit kits that, as the name suggests, try to exploit various vulnerabilities in the victim's machine to download malware. Links to exploit kits can be distributed on spam messages but were also found lately on legitimate hacked web sites.
Attackers are also heavily using "downloaders". It's only intent is to download another binary that happens to be a malware.
The usage of our block lists is very important because we collect and track URLs that point to malware, including the ones used by exploit kits and downloaders. It is common to find malware that is unknown by most, if not all, anti-virus vendors. This results in low detection rates and greater chances of user infections.
So, why take chances when you can have extra protection? Waste no more time and start protecting your network with the data provided by the Malware Patrol. Click here to find all the block lists available.
