All URL’s were then traced, domain names and IP’s resolved using services from nGran and IPligence. All entries include current registered owners. The MD5 for the download is shown below. End users are cautioned to avoid websites and event triggers shown in the list and ISP's are encouraged to block URL's and associated IP Addresses until such time as they conform to their respective Internet Use Policies.
The number of malicious sites on the Internet that are either origination or distribution (O&D) points for Malware, Trackware, Phishing, Identity Theft and Spam have increased year by year by a factor of 10 over the past two years, and continue to rise dramatically in 2013. Sophos has announced they are detecting and blocking roughly 250,000 attacks per day. According to both Kaspersky Lab and Sophos, over 84% of those attacks emanate from the Internet.
To help users combat the glut of malicious sites, we recommend services such as those offered by http://www.iblocklist.com or http://hosts-file.net/. All Internet users should limit their "attack surface" by curtailing connectivity to malicious websites. To further limit their exposure, users should take advantage of online services to check on the status of suspicious Internet domains. Mozilla has developed plugins for modern browsers, including supported IE versions, based on the Web of Trust (WOT). These plugins are freely available from Mozilla and show abusive websites while warning unsuspecting users prior to establishing connectivity with such sites. It is important for all Internet users to protect themselves with the use of such tools as it will limit their exposure to malicious websites and Malware infections.
Other tools that should be used to reduce end-user attack surfaces include those provided by online blacklist services. These services can be found at the following URLs shown below. Naturally if a domain shows to be blacklisted for abusive activity, then it stands to reason that such a site must be avoided until such time as the registered owner corrects that condition. End-users and Internet Service Providers must take more proactive roles in responding to malicious web site abuses and protecting their respective computers.
