Good sites for finding IP, DNS, and adblock formatted lists



  • for IP blocklists take a look at FireHOL.  They keep a list of all known/popular IP blocklists out there and monitor their age, number of IP's, if they're well-maintained, as well as list overlap (352 blocklists at the time of this post.)

    http://iplists.firehol.org/
    https://github.com/firehol/blocklist-ipsets

    Personally, I simply use their merged lists which combine your spamhaus, tors, dshields, emerging threats, and the like.  Either way, you'll find about 99% of the lists people always talk about.

    firehol_level1
    firehol_level2
    firehol_level3
    firehol_level4
    firehol_abusers_1d
    firehol_abusers_30d
    firehol_anonymous
    firehol_proxies
    firehol_webclient
    firehol_webserver

    DNS and adblock lists

    https://filterlists.com (mixed together unfortunately)  298 lists on this site

    Personally, in the least I use Steven Black's hosts file minimally for DNS blocking since he merges about 20 or so actively-maintained DNS lists and is well-curated.

    I also monitor DNS logs myself because no list out there is entirely geared towards mobile ads and analytics companies- even if they say they try to.



  • Thanks for the suggestion. I tried these out, but the level1 list blocks 192.168.0.0/16, which prevents local traffic.

    Edit: God, and the webserver one blocked 8.8.8.8, which is Google DNS…
