Welcome to Malware Patrol


We have been detecting, analyzing and monitoring cyber threats since 2005. An extensive network of sensors, sharing agreements, and community contributors have allowed us to grow a vast database of unique and historically rich – intelligent – threat data. Today, our indicators of compromise (IOCs) are used by thousands of commercial and non-commercial users to protect networks and assets all over the world.

For ease of use, Malware Patrol data feeds and block lists are offered in formats compatible with the most popular threat intelligence platforms, SIEMs, AV, firewall, and proxy systems. For those with specific ingestion requirements, we can fully customize feed contents and/or formats.
