krebsonsecurity.com blocked



  • krebsonsecurity.com does not appear in any logs that I can find.
    Disabling pfblockerNG and resetting states allows krebsonsecurity.com.
    Removing pfblockerNG and resetting states also allows krebsonsecurity.com. "Keep Settings" was disabled.
    Rebooting and reinstalling pfblockerNG and going through the initial wizard with default settings blocks krebsonsecurity.com. The only non-default setting I used was TLD and I also enabled "TOP1M Whitelist" and under "Domain count" set "Top 750k". I also entered krebsonsecurity.com at the bottom of "DNSBL Whitelist".
    It is still blocked.
    A possibly relevant and interesting side note: keepass.info is also blocked by default settings, but entering it in the "DNSBL Whitelist" allows it.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Can resolve just fine- with or without pfblockerng-dev
    So really see who blocks what : open the IP lists pfblockrng (the resolver) is using, and look up the IP or the network it's part off.
    Dono what lists you are using, so this one is up to you.

    But you should call them also : their web server doesn't answer on 80 or 443 : the web site is down.

    keepass works fine fr me.



  • Thanks for the response,

    I'm not sure what good that's going to do if the whitelist feature doesn't work. It doesn't seem to make sense to remove an entire list because of one false positive.

    Dono what lists you are using, so this one is up to you.

    I am using the lists enabled by default after the completion of the installation wizard.

    I don't understand what you mean or how this helps. Again, with pfblockerNG disabled or removed krebsonsecurity.com resolves.

    Thanks,



  • @py So another site is blocked by pfblockerNG: aheadoftheherd.com.
    Again, I don't find this in any of the firewall or pfblockerNG logs as being blocked, but disabling pfblockerNG allows the site to resolve.
    Is this a common problem or just a noob problem? Either way I really need some help in fixing this.
    THANKS!!!

    See it this way : you tend visit sites that happen to have a (shared ?) IP that happens to be on a list some where.

    Whitelist them ....
    Or remove the feeds that lists them.

    pfBlockerNG does nothing by default. Check for yourself : remove all the feeds and it becomes transparent.
