Black Hat Directory is a free public database of malicious IP addresses powered by Internet users and our honeypots. It contains IP addresses of cyber attackers with malicious intentions trying to break into your computer system. If your server log contains abusive, dodgy requests, use our search engine in order to check if anybody else reported the IP address with malicious activity. Each IP address in the directory contains a breach category and comment or log snippet.
Breach categories used in the directory:

  • Denial of service attack - this attack is accomplished by flooding the target with a massive amount of requests in order to overload the targeted system
  • Brute force attack - this category encompasses attempts to log in to a machine by trying many passwords and usernames
  • Backdoor attack - this category represents bypassing authentication by hidden programs or services to obtain remote access to a computer
  • Port scan - represents attackers identifying running services on the targeted machine by probing a server for open ports
  • Malicious bot - this category encompasses all bots performing unsolicited requests or ignoring robots.txt file
  • Anonymous proxy - public proxies like Tor, I2P relays or anonymous VPNs are often used by an attacker to hide his identity
  • Web attack - attempts to exploit web application security flaws
  • CMS attack - attempts to exploit CMS vulnerability
  • App vulnerability attack - attempts to exploit other applications vulnerability
  • Web spam - encompasses all kind of HTTP spamming
  • Email spam - encompasses all kind of E-mail spamming
  • Dodgy activity - this category encompasses superfluous, dodgy requests
We encourage all Internet users to contribute to the Black Hat Directory. If you have any information about an IP address making harmful requests, please report security breach by filling in the 'Report breach' form. We would like to acknowledge everybody for all comments on IP addresses.
