ThreatFox API

ThreatFox offers the following APIs for sharing and cobtaining IOCs.

Query current IOC set API key Submission Policy Query an IOC by ID Search an IOC Search for IOCs by file hash Query tag Query malware family Share (submit) an IOC Identify malware name (label) Get malware list Get IOC / threat types Get tag list Example python3 scripts Terms of Services (ToS)

Query current IOC set


You can obtain a copy of the current IOC dataset from ThreatFox by sending an HTTP POST request to the Threatfox API as documented below:

KeyRequired?CommentSample value
queryYesSelector, must be get_iocsget_iocs
daysNoNumber of days to filter IOCs for (based on first_seen) Min: 1, Max: 90. Default: 907

Here's a sample curl command that describes how to query the API for a get_iocs:

curl -X POST https://threatfox-api.abuse.ch/api/v1/ -d '{ "query": "get_iocs", "days": 7 }'
        

A response from this API look like this:

Query tag


You can search for IOCs on ThreatFox that are associated with a certain tag by sending an HTTP POST request to the Threatfox API as documented below:

KeyRequired?CommentSample value
queryYesSelector, must be taginfotaginfo
tagYesTag you want to queryMagecart
limitNoMax number of results (default: 100, max: 1'000)10

Here's a sample curl command that describes how to query the API for a taginfo:

curl -X POST https://threatfox-api.abuse.ch/api/v1/ -d '{ "query": "taginfo", "tag": "Magecart", "limit": 10 }'

commentNoYour comment on these IOCsThis is a very evil IOC!
anonymousNoIf set to 1, your submission will be anonymous. Default: 00

To authenticate your request, you must send the HTTP header API-KEY with your personal API-Key with every request. You can view your API-Key here.
Example HTTP header:

API-KEY: XYZ123

Here's a sample python3 script that shows how to share IOCs on ThreatFox:

#!/usr/bin/python3
import requests
import urllib3
import json

# Prepare HTTPSConnectionPool
headers = {
  "API-KEY":        "YOUR-API-KEY-HERE",
}
pool = urllib3.HTTPSConnectionPool('threatfox-api', port=443, maxsize=50, headers=headers, cert_reqs='CERT_NONE', assert_hostname=True)
