New Feature for Safe Browsing Alerts Helps Network Administrators Locate Phishing URLs
In late September, Google announced Google Safe Browsing Alerts for Network Administrators — a tool that enables Autonomous System (AS) owners to receive notifications for malicious content found on their networks. For example, ISPs that host thousands of sites but don’t directly control what’s hosted on those sites, still have an interest in content being hosted on their networks and want to keep their IP’s as clean as possible.
Today, Google announced that they would be adding phishing URLs to the notification messages.
By default, the alert notifications are sent out via email messages. For smaller organizations this may be ideal, but for larger organizations with more URLs and a security infrastructure that is setup to monitor malicious URLs, Google is offering an XML notification feature. With the XML feed, organizations can process the phishing and malicious URL notifications by a script, directly into any tools they may use internally.
