I use Karen’s WHOIS program to see what “Malewarebytes” is telling me are trojans, PUPs, etc. but the definitions are not up to date as can be seen by inputting the IP address:
WhoIs Lookup performed by Karen's WhoIs http://www.karenware.com/ No Default Regional Internet Registry was found for IP Address. This may mean the IP Address has not yet been allocated to any RIR, and should not be used on the Internet. If this address has been used on the public Internet, it may mean this program's 'C:\ProgramData\Karen's Power Tools\WhoIs\RirInfo2.dat' file is out of-date. You are using version 2008/08/29 17:45:15
- WhoIs.txt has been updated already and is available at http://webupdate.karenware.com/whois/whois.txt
- RirInfo2.txt needs to be fixed. ARIN doesn't seem to have an original file matching the format.
It might be possible to use recursive queries of whois.arin.net to do this.
For instance, if I search whois.arin.net instead of Default RIR Server I find that whois.ripe.net is the authority, then I search it:
