ThreatFox is a project from that tracks indicators of compromise (IOCs) associated with malware. The ThreatFox Data Adapter supports lookups by the following key types:

  • URL
  • Domain
  • IP:port
  • MD5 hash
  • SHA256 hash

When you create the data adapter, ThreatFox downloads and stores the data set in MongoDB. Refresh Interval configuration identifies when to fetch new sets.


This is a Graylog Operations Integrations feature and is only available since Graylog version 4.1.1. A valid Graylog Operations license is required.

  • Include IOCs Older Than 90 Days

    • Optional setting that includes IOCs older than 90 days. By default, Data Adapter's data does not include IOCs older than 90 days. To avoid false positives, handle IOCs older than 90 days carefully.
