Data for Integration
Enhance your service and create competitive advantage by integrating Spamhaus’ world-class IP and domain reputation data.
Our products provide additional layers of security for networks and email. They also present security teams with additional insight into malicious behavior.
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Firewall
Block the worst of the worst at your network edge, taking advantage of your existing BGP-capable routers. Configuration only takes minutes.
Data Query Service (DQS)
Benefit from industry-leading real time blocklists. These DNSBLs easily plug into your existing email infrastructure to block spam and other email threats.
A powerful research tool to investigate relationships between internet infrastructures. Quickly pivot to new areas of concern to rapidly investigate potential threats.
Immediately block connections to dangerous sites, including phishing and malware dropper websites. A ‘set and forget’ solution.
Spamhaus Intelligence API
Threat intelligence data in API format to enable users to easily integrate metadata relating to threats with their own applications, programs, and products.
A wide range of datasets, providing multiple layers of protection. They can be plugged directly into your existing hardware, making them an affordable choice.
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Feeds
Do Not Route Or Peer (DROP) and Botnet Controller List (BCL) datafeeds can peer with your existing BGP-capable router.
Domain (DBL), Zero Reputation (ZRD) and Hash blocklists (HBL) enable you to block content in emails, filtering out a higher rate of email-borne threats.
Data for Investigation
Passive DNS and extended datasets give you additional information on internet resources. They provide deeper insights into incidents and possible threats.
DNS Firewall Threat Feeds
A wide range of feeds to apply to your DNS recursive server. Choose the right level of protection for your organization.
Spam (SBL), Policy (PBL), Exploits (XBL) and Auth (AuthBL) blocklists allow you to filter email from IPs associated with spam, botnets, and other threats.

In depth information about the technical details and implementation of our products.
Block malicious traffic at your network edge using existing hardware and stop infected devices communicating with botnet command and controllers.
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Feeds deliver real time threat intelligence, allowing you to block connections from malicious IP addresses at the network edge, utilizing your existing routers or firewalls. This provides an additional layer of protection for your network without capital expenditure.
The feeds consist of Do Not Route or Peer (DROP), Botnet Controller List (BCL) – Dedicated, Botnet Controller List (BCL) – Compromised, and Extended Do Not Route or Peer (eDROP). These feeds are designed to have no false positives.
Configuring your router to peer with the Spamhaus BGP router only takes minutes. After peering with the four feeds, communications with botnet command & controllers (C&C) are stopped.
The data included in these feeds contain threat intelligence from abuse.ch, one of Spamhaus’ partners. IPs identified via Feodo Tracker, which include botnet C&Cs associated with Emotet, Quakbot, and more, are included in the BGP Feeds and delivered via a robust infrastructure, providing consumers with peace of mind and access to technical support.
This lists the worst of the worst; networks entirely controlled by criminal organizations, which send zero legitimate traffic.
These networks are solely used for spamming, hosting malware-infected sites, distributing phishing email, hosting botnet command and control (C&C) servers, and launching DDoS attacks against other networks. DROP also contains a list of IP ranges that cybercriminals have leased from ISPs for the same purposes.
Any traffic from your network to a DROP-listed IP address will likely be a user responding to a phishing email or a device infected with botnet malware.
Additional details about our Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Firewall, which utilizes this feed, can be found on our BGP Product page.
This dataset is an advisory “drop all traffic” list consisting of single IPv4 addresses that are being used to host botnet command and control (C&C) servers to control infected computers (bots).
Dedicated – Threat actors are using all the IPs listed to host their botnet C&C infrastructure on dedicated hosts, which serve no other purpose than controlling botnets.
Used at the network edge, it will prevent any infected devices on your network from communicating with a botnet C&C.
The BCL – Dedicated does not contain any subnets or CIDR prefixes larger than /32.
Additional details about our Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Firewall service, which utilizes this feed, can be found on our BGP Product page.
Compromised – Some of the most dangerous and dominant threats (such as Emotet and Qakbot) rely on compromised devices, usually on residential internet lines, to host their botnet C&C infrastructure. Additionally, operators of these botnets rely entirely on direct IP communication, not using any domain names. This means they bypass existing security mechanisms, such as DNS firewalls.
This newly introduced community addresses these threats and closes this gap in your security defense, protecting against malicious traffic to compromised hosts acting as botnet C&C servers.
The BCL – Compromised does not contain any subnets or CIDR prefixes larger than /32.
This dataset is an extension of the DROP list. It includes sub-allocated netblocks controlled by spammers or cybercriminals.
This list should be used in addition to the standard version.
