Zulu URL Risk Analyzer

By | February 22, 2012

Zulu is a dynamic risk scoring engine for web based content. For a given URL, Zulu will retrieve the content and apply a variety of checks in three different categories:

  • Content Checks – Inspection of page content to identify potentially malicious code in a variety of categories
  • URL Checks – Inspection of the full URL to identify malicious patterns and check the URL/FQDN/TLD against third party and Zscaler block lists
  • Host Checks – IP, DNS and netblock reputation checks

All algorithms generate both a risk score between 0-100 and a risk categorization (Low, Medium,High). Individual scores are then consolidated and weighted to calculate an overall page score and deliver a final categorization of Benign, Suspicious or Malicious based on overall page risk. Meta data for the page is also provided along with a history of past scans.
