Today The Spamhaus Project, a well known non-profit organisation fighting cybercrime in the internet, released a new list called “Spamhaus Botnet C&C List” (BGPCC) which is implemented at the router level using the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). I’m proud to announce that the newly launched list also contains data provided by ZeuS Tracker and SpyEye Tracker.
The list is described on Spamhaus website as follow:
As soon as ZeuS- or SpyEye Tracker identifies a new botnet C&C, information will be sent to Spamhaus automatically which will result in a listing on Spamhaus Botnet C&C list within a few minutes. In fact this means that networks using this list are protected from malicious botnet traffic from/to botnet controllers listed on ZeuS- or SpyEye Tracker automatically and without any delay.
By providing Tracker data to Spamhaus, abuse.ch continues its fight against cybercrime and bad actors on the internet.
If you are an ISP or network provider you might want to have a look at the Spamhaus BGP feed.
