    I would like to check if a particular address 17.X.X.X [obfuscated by admin] is used by hackers. How can I do that?

    If you are using the Commercial Unlimited edition of SecAst, then you can check how an IP address scores on the SecData service using the telnet interface to SecAst. Connect to your local SecAst server by telnet and issue the ‘hackerdb check’ command. For example:

    $ telnet 3000
    Connected to
    Escape character is ‘^]’.
    SecAst telnet interface on ‘PBX1 on Waterloo data center wall’
    SecAst>hackerdb check
    Action: checking Telium hacker database
    Database match: exact IP
    IP address:
    Score: 25

    Alternatively, if you subscribe to the SecData service directly then you can check how an IP address scores from a browser by entering the query into the address bar; for example:
    (you will need to substitute the hostname and key with those assigned to your account.)

    Please note that manual queries of the SecData service through SecAst are throttled, so if you issue too many queries too quickly you will receive a warning to try again later.
