Researchers Revamp Blacklisting Algorithm

Kara Reeder

Researchers at the SANS Institute and SRI International have completely revamped the way network blacklists are formulated and distributed, reports ZDNet.


Highly Predictive Blacklisting uses an algorithm that exploits the relationships between networks that have been attacked by similar Internet sources in order to predict future attacks.


The service will be unveiled at Usenix 17th Usenix Security Symposium. All DShield contributors currently can try out a free experimental version.


IT Business Edge blogger Carl Weinschenk says malware protection is not as simple as black and white. But blacklisting isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
