I forgot to share this resource here.
A project by the SANS InfoSec site.
Covid19 Domain Classifier
hxxps://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/Covid19+Domain+Classifier/25958
Starting in February, domain name registrations using keywords related to the "Covid19/Coronoavirus" crisis have exploded. Earlier this week, Domaintools made a file with related domain names available. The vast majority of these domains are not actively used or currently display benign "Parked Domain" content. Some are used for legitimate purposes. But there are a few that are used for scams and other illegal activity. We are trying to enlist as many volunteers as possible to help us classify the domains collected by Domaintools.
If you would like to contribute in classifying registered domains, you should use a VM or spare PC to test each before rating.
