While this is a great concept, I do not trust that this:
"Anyone anywhere can use it," said Phil Rettinger, GCA's president and chief operating officer, in an interview with Ars. The service, he says, will be "privacy sensitive," with no logging of the addresses making DNS requests—"we will keep only [rough] geolocation data," he said, for the purposes of tracking the spread of requests associated with particular malicious domains. "We're anonymizing the data, sacrificing on the side of privacy."
will remain true because of this:
The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA)—an organization founded by law enforcement and research organizations to help reduce cyber-crime
I agree. The very people we worry most about both from their tendency to act as criminals, and their general abject disconnect with common sense and security. Not a group of people I'd trust with security decision making.
I fully believe the DNS blocking bits of the service will work as advertised. Because the lists they aggregate from are coming form the 3rd party. It is the not tracking all my DNS queries that I do not believe.
I have zero problem accepting Strongarm.io for this, because they are a for profit company that will cease to be if they do something wrong. are caught doing something wrong.
