For a while we have been informing the public that yes, our lists are compatible with pfSense, DansGuardian, SquidGuard, HAProxy and just about a jillion other web filtering platforms you could possiblely think of. Its as easy as subscribing, and inserting the link to our shalla/urlblacklist compatible format archive found here http://www.squidblacklist.org/downloads/squidblacklists/squidblacklist.tar.gz
You will be required to authenticate with a valid username and password to download our works, which is no big deal really, most of these platforms are using wget or fetch to pull the blacklists, and both of these programs support basic authentication. Figuring it out should be trivial for the average user who knows how to google.
Alternatively, if you really wanted to, enabling automated updates for our standard acl formatted blacklists can also be done, but does require a little additional work, just some simple scripting really. One of our members recently shared a link and a series of scripts with the intention that his works be shared with the community.
If you are interested in pursuing this method, below is a link to his original blog entry describing his efforts as well as direct links to download the scripts he has drafted. But for most people using the shalla/urlblacklist compatible formatted archive will be much easier because many of these programs and platforms are coded to accept that particular file structure.
Thank you to Paul Goreman for submitting his time and research.
We have also hosted a backup copy of his update script.
