New DShield Feature: Highly Predictive Blacklists.
I am happy to announce an exciting new feature to DShield submitters. Based on some research done by SRI International, we came up with an algorithm to create better blacklists.

The short one paragraph summary: The algorithm compares your submissions to others and finds groups of similar submitters. Next, it will generate blacklists based on how close you are to these other submitters.

In other simulations, these blacklists have been far superior to regular "global worst offender" or "local worst offender" lists.

For details, see
