Tagging is used to score specific emails, emaildomains,TLDs, domains, names, IPs, CIDRs, and device fingerprints as good, bad, or to skip scoring. Items tagged as Bad will add negative scoring to the risk area, Good tags add positive scoring, and Do Not Score will set the item score to zero.

Read about the new Tag API usage and specs.

We have implemented a new algorithm for tracking the real-time movement of IPs across multiple Vets. Our service scores distance velocity between IPs and reports risk levels based on distances. As an example, you can now identify a user who tries to create an account or login from IPs in different locations, and score the risk levels based on the amount the distance changes.

This feature can be very effective for detecting account takeover attempts and devices that are connected to multiple proxies or servers.

The new tagging feature empowers your company to score specific emails, emaildomains, domains, IPs, device fingerprints, and names as good, bad, or to skip scoring.

Items tagged as Bad will add negative scoring to the risk area. Good tags add positive scoring, and Do Not Score will set the item score to zero. Good and Bad scoring is additional to standard area scoring.

To illustrate how tagging works, if you vet IP =, the vet will hit “Private or no geo IP” risk and score -10 for IP area. Adding tags of:
– Bad will add -130 to the IP score area, and the IP will now score -140
– Good will add +130 to the IP scoring area, and the IP will now score +120
– Do Not Score will set the IP scoring to 0

This gives you extra control over specific item scoring for emails, emaildomains, domains, IPs, device fingerprints, and names. If you think emails from “xyz.com” are all bad, just tag that emaildomain as Bad, and all vets with that emaildomain will have -130 added into the email score.

Tag details are also returned in the JSON response, so you can track Vets that hit your tags.

Unlike community data that impacts all customer vets, tagged items only impact your account vetting scores and are not shared with anyone. Adding tags is done in the Vet details area. To the right of tag-able items, you will see a drop-down button with tagging options. Just select the tag to add.


The portal has a new tab for managing all your tags. Click on a value to view all Vets that hit that tag.


In the future E-HAWK will provide an API to add, update, and delete tags so you can automate the entire process.

Our domain analysis project is well underway. We are adding close to 1 million new domains every day and building risk profiles for the domain and email domain. With all the new TLDs it is now cheaper to create domains with emails and start the fraud bots going then buying emails on the black market. This new system should help stop fraudsters trying to leverage new domains.

Portal Admins can now adjust scoring values for about 100 different risk hit areas. Because each organization views risk differently, you can quickly increase or decease the score for many major risk hits. Just select Custom Scoring from the account menu in the portal, click on an area, and adjust the scores. Learn more.

Introducing power tools to quickly spot links between multiple vets and users. Compliance and risk managers can use this technology to “connect the dots” between fraudsters and protect against gangs and bots. The portal displays counts and links between devices, email, phones, IPs and domains.



The vet detail area now shows count badges next to items with multiple records. This IP and email have been seen twice, while the domain 139 times. Just click the value to quickly view all associated vets. If you terminate an account, you can use this feature to quickly see all accounts connected with the fraudster.

Our friends at Cornershop Creative have created a plug-in for connecting E-HAWK vetting to Drupal sites. The code is open source. Download at https://www.drupal.org/node/2430497.

DrupalThe module provides controls for mapping fields in your Webform form to fields that E-HAWK uses to compute a risk score. It also provides an interface for mapping values returned by E-HAWK into hidden webform fields so E-HAWK’s computed results are readily available.

This module attempts to invoke its E-HAWK processing prior to normal webform submission handling, so you should be able to setup rules, actions or whatever else you might normally do to handle submissions based on the values provided by E-HAWK.
