How to Check if an IP Address is a Threat in Node.JS

Online security is a major theme in current discussion surrounding web commerce and media. With private information being shared and stored online regularly, one way you can keep your clients and partners safe is utilizing IP Address validation programs. This API will show you how to check if an IP Address is a threat by using a list of known malware including bad IPs, botnets, compromised servers, and others.

First, run this command to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client –save

You can also add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.2.4"
}

Then, you can call our function, IPAddressIsThreat:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.IPAddressApi();var value = "value_example"; // String | IP address to check, e.g. \"55.55.55.55\". The input is a string so be sure to enclose it in double-quotes.var callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
console.error(error);
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
}
};
apiInstance.iPAddressIsThreat(value, callback);

With this, your website and organization can maintain top-tier online security for both you and your clients. To access your personal API Key, visit the Cloudmersive website, where you will gain access to 800 free calls per month across our library of APIs.
