Scores are here!

Published on 28.11.2013 08:26

We're proud to announce our first release of the scoring system. The scoring is responsible for rating an IP on how bad it really is. Since the API allows anyone to report IPs without authentication, this is a key feature of badips.com.

It's an early release and we have some ideas to further improve the algorithm, but we wanted to ship this improvements to you asap.

You can try it by accessing a block list with different scores, for example, try these two: the ssh block list containing IPs with score from 1 to 5 and this: the ssh block list containing IPs with score 5.

The score ranges from 0 to 5, from something like 'not so bad/false report' (0) over confirmed bad (3) to quite aggressive (5). The higher the score, the more evil the IPs.

Feedback is welcome, as always, in our Forum.
