While checking a firewall's logs, I noticed a "TCP FIN SCAN" entry for The log entry showed the local host accessing port 80 on the remote host at that IP address. Out of curiosity, I performed an nslookup on the IP address. The PTR record for the IP address points to the domain name.
Default Server:


Name:    *


When I put in the address bar of a browser, I was taken to a Adobe Marketing Cloud privacy web page, which states:

Check a Domain's Reputation

There are a number of companies that provide a means of checking a domain's reputation. E.g., perhaps you may wish to determine if a particular domain name is associated with the transmission of spam or want to know whether it is safe to visit a particular website. Often antispam and antivirus vendors will allow you to lookup an IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) , e.g. to make that determination through a website they provide.

IP and Domain Name Reputation Sites

An IP address may be added to a DNS Blacklist (DNSBL), if spam is detected as emanating from that IP address. You can check for the presence of an IP address on various blacklists using the MxToolBox Email Blacklist Check, which currently checks 124 blacklists, or at individual blacklist sites, such as MAPS.

You can check on whether an IP address has been associated with attacks on other systems at DShield or myNetWatchman by performing an IP lookup.

You can also obtain information on the "reputation" for a site at Barracuda Central by performing a lookup on either an IP address or a domain name. Barracuda Networks sells widely used spam firewall devices, so a poor reputation listing at Barracuda Central may lead to email from an IP address listed there, or with a domain name in the body of email messages being found there, being blocked by those using Barracuda Networks security devices.

Another reputation site is TrustedSource. You can lookup an IP address there and see a graph of activity associated with that site. If you see red bars on the graph, those represent malicious activity associated with the IP address on the days for which those bars appear.

Locating Cybersquatters Capitalizing on a Variant of Your Domain

Cybersquatters may buy domains similar to yours hoping to take advantage of someone mistyping your domain name or to mislead someone into thinking a domain name in a URL belongs to a legitimate company or organization. For instance many people might visit, so a cybersquatter might buy, which has a missing "o", so that someone making a typo that left out that "o" would be directed to the cybersquatter's site instead, where the cybersquatter may have nothing but ads, hoping to get money generated from those viewing those ads. If millions of people visit every week, the cybersquatter will probably get a signifiant amount of traffic from such a typo.

Or perhaps you own The cybersquatter may purchase, if it is available. Someone seeing in an email may think the domain belongs to your company and visit a site that might have nothing but ads, perhaps even risque ones, or the site might try to infect visitors with adware/spyware, which might harm your company's reputation, even though you don't own the domain name and have no control over the site.

CitizenHawk helps you locate potential cybersquatter sites for your domain name.
