I had an Idea but I need your help :)


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I had an Idea and I am actively developing it. Maybe already existent I don't know but I am developing an url shortening service that will be free for ever and without advertisement at all.

Now, the problem is that I never click on a shortened url because I think that can be vectors for malicious intents so my idea was to implement two different kind of controls before accepting an url:

1) OpenDNS to block phishing/malicious websites.

1) SpamCOP to block phishing/malicious IP address.

(Yes, 1 and 1)

As I am asking the same to OpenDNS, there's an opportunity to use a SpamCOP API to recognize if an IP is blacklisted?

Sorry for my english, be kind... this is also my first thread and I hope to have an answer to my request :) - Obviously I will like to say in the website "Proudly powered by SpamCOP technology".

You can query the SpamCop Blocking List (SBL) to see whether or not it has listed an address as a known recent spam mail source. You can query via the web, or using standard DNS-like calls to the server (which is why lists like SCBL are often called DNS Blocking Lists or DNSBLs). I don't know whether there's an "API" per se but the DNSBL procedures are pretty standard among many blockling lists.

See here: http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml.
