Shoot off a mail to sales at netcraft dot com, i did and got back a very 
detailed technical reply.

 From the reply "We can block arbitrary patterns, thereby coping with 
phishing attacks hosted on bank's sites, wildcard DNS, shared hosting 
systems & personalised urls". They also claim not to suffer from a 
geocities like problem (for instance: surbl and uribl haven't listed 
geocities for policy reasons, no fps) + they also take care of 
<buzzword>crosssite scripting frauds</buzzword>. Ask them for the 
commercials and see if it suits your budget.
