I saw another article about this a couple of days ago ..
What the circleID piece seems to have missed is the false positive rate, which is pretty high for production use .. though the details of how you’d actually use this technology is completely missing anyway ..

...so now, what will the complaint be, you ask?

    "Miscreants register thousands of new domains every day to launch Internet-scale attacks, such as spam, phishing, and drive-by downloads. Quickly and accurately determining a domain's reputation (association with malicious activity) provides a powerful tool for mitigating threats and protecting users. Yet, existing domain reputation systems work by observing domain use (e.g., lookup patterns, content hosted) — often too late to prevent miscreants from reaping benefits of the attacks that they launch. ... Our results show that PREDATOR can provide more accurate and earlier detection compared to existing blacklists, and significantly reduce the number of suspicious domains requiring more resource-intensive or time-consuming inspection."
