Boffins predict web scams with domain registration data

Number6

We need something similar to the RBL lookups used for IP addresses. Something that would tell you how long a domain has been registered, even if it's just <30, <60, <90, <180, <365 or older, so that when my scanner looks through an email, it can quickly and easily do a lookup and score shiny new domains accordingly. Doing a whois on all domains and parsing for the creation date is not trivial and probably violates the terms of service of the whois providers, given the volume of lookups.
