What is The Hil Blacklist?

The Hil Blacklist stands for Habeas Infringer List.  It is a blacklist that maintains a list of IP Addresses that infringe on Habeas’ intellectual property.  The Habeas Organization began in 2002 and has provided email reputation intelligence to over one million emails.  They currently assist 190 countries.  The Hil Blacklist is known as one of the most efficient blacklists for recognizing spam emails or fraudulent activity.

Unlike other blacklists, the Hil Blacklist takes caution when flagging an IP Address for fraudulent or spam-like activity.  The Blacklist will not just flag any IP Address, without investigation.  The main goal of the Hil Blacklist operated by the Hil Organization is to block emails that are being sent to users that contain harmful malware and viruses that can cause damage.  Blacklisting the IP Addresses that are guilty of this can protect a lot of other users from harmful cyber attacks.
