The attack by REvil used several domains, called "Command and Control" domains (also referred to as "C2 domains" or "CNC domains"), which are used after a system has been attacked. The purpose in this case is to notify REvil that the systems had been encrypted.
The configuration file of the ransomware was published by Fabian Wosar on GitHub. From that file, we extracted the list of domains. These domains are not all actually compromised systems—it's likely that only a few are, and the rest are either decoys or have been cleaned up.
Out of an abundance of caution, DNSFilter has marked all of these domains as malicious. We did so on July 3rd, when the domains were first made available. We are doing our best to verify entries and investigate specific aspects of the CNC servers, in order to eliminate false positives from the list.
This was published on GitHub as a service to others—it's an unsorted list in the config file, so making this more easily available could help others who are investigating.
The domains shouldn't be taken as a list of compromised systems. It is simply an extract from the config file of domains marked there as "command and control".
If there are any entries that can be verified as clean, please contact us or submit a pull request on the GitHub repository.

This month there was a high level of focus on compliance issues spanning several focus areas from governments and oversight agencies around the world. And while there were actions taken with regard to specific vulnerabilities, a larger spotlight was placed on bigger picture security considerations in a more general context.
TL;DR: SASE is broadening—it is about more than just access! It is about endpoint protection and user-based access…and it's called Security Service Edge (SSE). All of the aspects of the joint NSA and CISA guidance on Protective DNS (PDNS) and user-level policies are part of the secure category, originally launched by Gartner in January 2022. Regardless, it’s been interesting to see the NSA and CISA create guidance recognizing the breadth of cyber...
