Facebook Launches ThreatExchange for Cyber Defense

Facebook is launching ThreatExchange - a platform where partners can securely exchange data on malware and phishing attacks.  Early partners include Bitly, Dropbox, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, and Yahoo.

The ThreatExchange operates using an API approach that builds on Facebook's internal ThreatData system to create a social platform designed for sharing indicators like bad URLs and domains. Various privacy measures are built into the platform to guard critical information that Exchange participants may not wish to be shared with larger communities.
