What Is a Malicious IP Address List?

A malicious IP address list is a list of IP addresses that have been used in a malicious activity. In most cases, these addresses are used to distribute malware. They can also be used to launch attacks. Usually, these attacks are caused by botnets, hacked servers or shady hosting companies. The purpose of these lists is to help webmasters and other users block these bad IPs.

Can someone blacklist my IP?

There are several ways to find out if a certain IP is malicious. Some of these methods include analyzing telemetry data and WildFire analysis. Other methods use algorithms to score a particular IP. One such algorithm is the MinFraud Score service. It is a service that can return a score from 0 to 99 to indicate the likelihood that an IP address is a high-risk target.

Several organizations maintain a reputation list of known attackers. These lists can be useful in identifying suspicious connections and buffer overload attempts. Unlike IP reputation services, these lists are based on real data and are therefore more accurate.

An IP address can be assigned a negative reputation if it sends a high volume of spam, viruses, or phishing messages. When these criteria are met, the IP is blocked. Alternatively, it can be disabled.

AbuseIPDB is a resource that helps webmasters and other users block malicious IPs. It has a Twitter account and a contact form. You can also look up a specific IP by name or category.

IPQS is another way to find out if an IP is a threat. It can detect phishing, SPAM, and fraudulent payments. It also classifies suspicious connections and can help webmasters compare notes.
