The Spamhaus Domain Block List (DBL) list is based on a scoring system.
If your organisation requires more fine-grained information on domains, wants to track a particular domain’s score over a longer period, or you would like to combine DBL with information from your own threat intelligence platform, then DBL is also available as an API: eDBL, allowing you to query the DBL engine.
eDBL queries will return a JSON record for each domain that you are investigating. The eDBL information includes data such as the DBL score, the date that the domain was first seen and last seen, along with additional data fields.
Full information is available on request from Spamhaus Technology.
Many of the world’s largest internet service providers rely on Spamhaus threat intelligence to block harmful email traffic and protect their customers.
