Kyle is a well-respected and highly talented security researcher and we’re extremely fortunate to have him join the DomainTools team. His combination of hands-on cybersecurity experience, industry credibility, and internal drive will help expose the true power of our industry-leading data and Iris platform and allow us to contribute primary threat research out to the security community. With that, I’m excited to include some more information from Kyle himself.

Tim Chen, CEO DomainTools

I recently took a position at DomainTools, the leader in domain name and DNS-based threat intelligence. I took a position as a Senior Security Researcher. My role is multi-fold but initially I will spearhead DomainTools’ efforts to research DNS- related exploits, investigate current cyber threats, and explore attack origins and threat actors. I will be citing this research in blogs, white papers, and speaking engagements. I will also work directly with the product team to assist in getting core threat intelligence features added to


I’ve been asked on a few different occasions during the past week why I chose to go to DomainTools. There are several reasons, but the first is respect. I’ve been an avid DomainTools user for nearly four years and I respect the toolset greatly. It’s assisted on literally every white paper and blog I’ve written, and it’s greatly respected in the Infosec community. In addition to respect, it comes down to data. Any good threat intel person is hungry for data. DomainTools has more data than most organizations out there, and I like to hunt, so it was a perfect fit. Finally, DomainTools gave me the flexibility to have a major impact on the DomainTools client base, products, and published research. With the power of the DomainTools team, there’s a lot of great intelligence you can glean from our toolsets.

If there are certain features you’d like to see added to DomainTools, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly – we take feedback very seriously.

The Distribution of Malicious Domains
In our previous reports, we profled malicious domains by describing patterns in theirregistration details: top level domain (TLD), free email provider, Whois privacy provider, andhosting location. In this edition, we compared the distributions of malicious domains vs neutraldomains across a measure of age (both of the domain and of the name server domain) anda measure of the entropy of the domain name. We also examined malicious domains acrossregistrars to fnd additional clues as to how and when these domains were registered.
