BL of Compromised Hosts?

  • From: Deepak Jain

Would anyone be interested in receiving a text or BGP feed of IPs of hosts known/suspected to be compromised and used as parts of DDOS attacks? Would anyone be interested in contributing their BGP views?

We have (and I'm sure we're not isolated) been seeing attacks from several thousand/tens of thousands of unique hosts generated >2Gb/s, >1Mpps attacks.

I am not necessarily suggesting that providers use this list to blackhole at their edge, but its certainly a good candidate for that. It could alternatively be used by access providers to notify their customers or filter on their customers. I am sure it would also be a good list to use to deny traffic to SMTP servers from/to.

I'm not really an activist, so if there is real interest, I will be glad to set it up and contribute our own significant list of sources.

If this is already done and I don't have a good set of skills with Google, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Deepak Jain
