RBLTracker: Facebook Threat Exchange, New Website, and More!

After more than six month of design and development, we’ve launched a brand new version of the RBLTracker Blacklist Monitoring service and website. This release includes some long sought-after features, including a completely redesigned management portal, support for the Facebook Threat Exchange, and much much more.

New Management Portal

With a completely redesigned web portal, customers can easily manage all aspects of their RBLTracker account.


Some key new features include:

  • Improved reporting and graphing features.
  • Additional payment options, including credit card payments, and auto-recharging account balances.
  • Easier management of accounts with large number of hosts.
  • Support for sub-accounts to split up account management roles for billing, development, and for read-only access users.
  • Support for contact groups by host, which allows custom alerting options by host.

Facebook Threat Exchange

threat_exchange_logosSupport for the new Facebook Threat Exchange service is now part of the standard RBLTracker monitoring process.

Facebook Threat Exchange is a shared network of malware and phishing attack targets, shared by a collaborative of social media and SaaS organizations, including Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Dropbox, and Yahoo.

RBLTracker monitors your host IP addresses and domains, against data collected from sources like Facebook posts, Dropbox files, and Pinterest pins. If your domain or IP address was used to try and spread malware or viruses on any of the supported platforms, you’ll receive alerts from RBLTracker.

RBLTracker: Pushover Notifications and Temporary Manual Hosts

The RBLTracker service was upgraded to v1.13 today, which includes the following new features:

Pushover Notifications

Pushover makes it easy to get real-time notifications on your Android device, iPhone, iPad, and Desktop. Once you have your Pushover client installed, simply copy and paste your user key into the contacts section of the RBLTracker portal.


Many companies are already using Pushover for system event notifications; this lets you consolidate all your notifications in one simple application.

Temporary Manual Hosts

Customers on the Ultimate package can now add temporary hosts from the Manual Check section of the web portal.



These temporary hosts will persist for the life of your session, and will disappear as soon as you log out. This feature is handy for customers that would like to do a quick check on a host not currently listed in your host list.
