Hello MDL

Hello everyone:
I just stumbled upon the domain list today and first of all this is a fantastic website. The world of malware research has been dominated by samples for far to long. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where some of the urls come from? If this is all community driven well then how can I help, can I submit links as well?

-Thanks

Welcome on board!  :)

...most of the urls are found via following links through spam-mails,
checking the html source of "not-so-clean" webpages...
(bobby's Malzilla is THE tool to make life easier for tasks like this),
lurking around in irc and trojan exchange forums,
in order to gather and reverse botnet/backdoor samples etc...
you get the point,these are some of the commonly used practices...

As for submitting links,yeah,sure you can...that's the main point after all,
just wait a bit until JohnC (ie.the...boss,lol!) :D logs in...
in order to provide some thorough details on how to...  8)

...hey JohnC,that's an interesting question/topic raised here...
maybe there should be a "sticky" in the main page or something,
in order to make the whole process easier for people,
ie."How to submit url pointers to malware"...
or probably via a sub-forum maybe...what do you think?

JohnC:
Malicious domains can be submitted via the contact page, forum private message, or just posted on the forum. Which ever is the most convenient for you.

I had this question sent to me through the contact page today aswell, so it may be best to create a sticky as you pointed out. Or perhaps create a forum for malicious domains to be posted. I'll create that forum now :)
