Pfblocker is my hero :)



  • Hello everyone, first post here. I'm a network admin for a medium sized business in the US. We are using an ASUS 1U rack server for pfSense and it's running as our gateway for 2 WAN connections, firewall and DHCP server as well as VPN and a few other things.

    Anyway we have Malwarebytes endpoint protection on the domain and this is the graph it just showed me

    If you can't tell, that sudden drop in blocked traffic on 9/22/2015 is when I enabled pfblocker. Just thought it was a cool visual of what the firewall is doing.

    I'm using the builtin country lists and a group of lists from i-block list. I can check which ones specifically tomorrow when I'm back in the office.

    If your interested, here is a script I wrote to import ~50 additional block lists… Some lists need to be changed to "Flex" state. A few have since been discontinued.

  • @bbcan @overlordsofthewiki
    perhaps this could/should be updated?

    also might be nice to provide a sortof up-to-date list of working free/paid blocklists that work with pfblng.
