List of mailicious/advertising domains is maintained by a number of
people. SURBL (surbl.org) maintains list of URLs found in spam and
Google maintains list of websites that may infect the end user
(uprovides using the safe browsing API). Stopbadware also maintains such
a list.

So the only question is when are these websites active and when are they
inactive. I do not see why this information is terribly important as
assuming that these websites are always up is more safe.
