IP address abuse management

Summary

The InterLIR platform is a system that allows the owner of an IP address to protect themselves from possible financial and reputational damage. The platform begins by conducting a full survey of their counterparties and studying the history of their use of IP addresses from other owners. Afterwards, they analyze the beneficiaries and the company itself and then, after the transfer of IP networks to lease, they constantly monitor complaints from Internet users that come through official channels. Finally, they carry out preventive selective monitoring of networks in use by tenants for prohibited activities. IP address abuse is a serious issue, and it is essential to take all necessary steps to prevent it. By following the best practices outlined above, you can help to protect yourself and your IP address from harm and ensure a safe and secure online experience.

IP address abuse, or the improper use of IP addresses, is one of the biggest threats to online security and can have severe implications for internet sustainability. Holders of the rights to manage blocks of IP addresses are constantly faced with a dilemma when it comes to unused IP addresses, as they don’t bring any income despite the growing market, and the use of addresses through a paid temporary transfer of rights to third-party companies can create a lot of problems for their owner.

Such problems include the inclusion of IP addresses in spam lists or their use for illegal activities, for example, for a hacker attack on computer infrastructure. Sites with illegal content hosted on these addresses can also compromise both the IP address itself and its owner. To address this issue, we have created the InterLIR platform, which allows you to protect the owner of such a valuable asset as an IP address from possible financial and reputational damage.

The InterLIR platform begins by conducting a full survey of our counterparties and studying the history of their use of IP addressing from other owners. We analyze the beneficiaries and the company itself and then, after the transfer of IP networks to lease, we constantly monitor complaints from Internet users that come through official channels. Finally, we carry out preventive selective monitoring of networks in use by tenants for prohibited activities. 

Phishing, spam, and malware are some of the most common types of IP address abuse on the Marketplace. Phishing IPs can be blocklisted, and resources with external IP addresses can communicate with the public internet. The damage someone can do with your IP address is immense, as it can be used to seize valuable information, including your location and online identity. A hacker can also hack your device or steal your identity with it. 

It is important to remember to always communicate when it comes to IP address abuse. Otherwise, copyright holders can sue you for illegal hosting. In addition, an Abuse team solves 95%+ of IP abuse cases automatically while the remaining portion is handled manually and InterLIR has introduced an abuse incident handling fee that ensures optimized abuse-handling practices and functions as an incentive to communicate and solve abuse more effectively.

Interlir works with Spamhaus and other spamlist, such as Sorbs, to check the IP reputation of users. It uses the Spamhaus blocklists to filter out domains used for sending spam in real-time. This is done to ensure users are not engaging in any malicious activity. Spamhaus is an international non-profit organization that collaborates with law enforcement cybercrime teams to track down spammers, phishers, botnets, and malware operations.

It compiles profiles, background, and evidence of spam gangs and operations. Microsoft also uses the Spamhaus blacklist to reject emails coming from specific IP addresses. Interlir has a helpful tooltips that provides additional information without affecting the user experience. It also lists IP addresses in order of relevance. Any IP address that shows up on the Spamhaus Blocklist (SBL) must be removed by the user’s Internet Service Provider’s (ISP)abuse team.

The Blocklist Removal Center (BRC) tool is used to check if an IP or domain is listed on any of Spamhaus DNS Blocklists (DNSBLs). The IP and Domain Reputation Checker has been updated to become mobile-friendly and to have one search field for IPv4 addresses, IPv6 addresses, domain names, email-addresses, and hash strings. The Checker automatically detects the user’s client IP address. It is also designed to step users through the removal process and provide the right information at the right time.

IP address abuse is a serious issue, and it is essential to take all necessary steps to prevent it. By following the best practices outlined above, you can help to protect yourself and your IP address from harm and ensure a safe and secure online experience.

IP address abuse is a real threat, and it is essential to take all necessary steps to protect yourself and your IP address from harm.
