“In the battle against malicious traffic and infected websites,
security researchers are always looking for new avenues of
detection. According to Trustwave Security Researcher Rodrigo

detailed his approach toward scoring HTTP headers to help identify
infected websites. Montoro explained that a signature-based
approach can’t scale properly, which is why he set out to find a
new way forward.
