About the Report
This is a look at aggregate threats sorted by Top Level Domains from across our global user base for November 2020. While reports such as the monthly DAAR TLD Threat Assessment showcase total known threats as reported through DAAR to ICAAN, our report shows the usage pattern from actual users counting total threats stopped. This data is by no means meant to be web-wide authoritative, but rather just a snapshot of data from us as a single provider (ScoutDNS).
We are counting aggregate threats resolved from all domains supporting six threat categories we track which include: Malware C&C, Phishing, Adware, Malicious Scripts, Infected Hosts, and Viruses. Our users come from a broad set and include nonprofits, schools, retailers, small business, healthcare, government, and enterprise located mostly in North America, Europe, Africa, and Australia.
