SURBL – shortener/redirector feed

Many shortened url’s are used to obfuscate and hide the intended ‘bad domain’, to avoid filtering, blocking, etc.

SURBL’s Shortener Feed – provides a dynamic and up to date list of current bad shortened domains.  These shortened domains ultimately direct to known bad / malicious sites – and should be scored, and managed accordingly.

- a new data set now available from SURBL


  1. Zone transfer or DNS lookup to detect shorteners
  2. Rsync of currently abused shortener links 
  3. Ability for subscriber to submit new shorteners
  4. Ability for subscribers to submit shortener links currently being abused
