Why use a block list of URLs?
One of the most frequent questions is: "We have a firewall, anti-virus, anti-malware, IDS/IPS, etc - why do we need block lists of URLs in our proxy or router?"
That is a great question. First of all, it is certainly very important to have multiple protection layers and trusted intelligence sources when it comes to Internet security, no single vendor can protect you from all the current threats. Also, fraudsters are always improving their attacks that range from simple URLs pointing to malware files to complex exploit kits that can leverage vulnerabilities to download malicious software to the victims' computers. On top of that, distributed malware frequently has very low anti-virus detection rates. Attackers are also heavily using "downloaders", these are softwares which only intent is to download other malicious binaries that happens to be malware. We collect and track URLs that point to malware, including the ones used by exploit kits and downloaders, this is why it is so important to use our block lists.
So, why take chances when you can get extra protection? Waste no more time and start protecting your network with the data provided by the Malware Patrol. Click here to find all the block lists available.
