- Identifies URLs and domains known to host or deliver malware.
- Identifies URLs and domains known to attempt to trick users into providing their security credentials through the use of false or spoofed websites.
- Command and Control
- Identifies URLs and domains that are used by malware and/or compromised systems to stealthily communicate with an attacker’s remote server to receive malicious commands or export data.
