Introducing ipctx.me and ipctx.me/json

Spur has been building a comprehensive database covering anonymity services on the internet. We are proud to announce the availability of ipctx.me and programmatic access via ipctx.me/json. If you want to know if your traffic blends in with others, if your VPN is protecting your activity, or if a residential/malware proxy is present on your current network, check out our new service.

Standard Context

For a while now, Spur has been offering standard context pages. For instance, check out the details for this PrivateVPN node. These pages focus primarily on granular VPN information.

ipctx.me

The new ipctx.me pages give you particular details on residential proxies on your current IP. For instance, when I am connected to a Jacksonville, FL Hide My Ass VPN, I can see how well I currently blend in with the internet.

I can easily see that there are about ~10 devices at any given moment on this IP. Additionally, I see that there is a victim of the TDSS botnet currently connected to the VPN. TDSS provides victims for AWM_PROXY and enables AWM customers to use any of the victim's connections as their own.

Programmatic Access

If you are interested in seeing the details in a raw JSON format, check out ipctx.me/json to get those details.
