Something smells funny at urlblacklist.com

Competition is great, it drives innovation and gives companies the incentive to improve and the drive needed to continue to improve services and products. And in the spirit of competition sometimes a little dirt gets slung. But it isn’t only serving our personal interests to outline the failures of one of our competitors today. In this case, I believe that it is in fact doing the public a service. And by this I mean spreading awareness, to warn unsuspecting customers of what they are spending their money on, and of course, to convince you. with a little sound reasoning, to purchase our services instead of the competition.

There aren’t many suppliers of domain blacklist data for web filtering platforms and applications, this is one of the primary motivating reasons why we created Squidblacklist.org in 2012. We knew it could be done better. There are however a small handful of other providers remaining. One of these websites is urlblacklist.com, and it is them whom we have chosen to single out for scrutiny in this blog post.

In summary, Urlblacklist.com is a horrible service provider. One whos website was recently down for over 3 months in the 2016 calendar year. As a provider of services to paying clients, this is simply a disgrace. We have been monitoring urlblacklist.com, watched multiple outages, and we know that their domain name changed hands recently, something they did not announce on their website, so we will do it for them, here.

The website urlblacklist.com was down for nearly an entire month in October 2016. Then, a second outage occured that lasted nearly 2 months, beginning on or around Nov 10, lasting through until Dec 30, 2016. Further scrutiny reveals that in Nov of 2016, the owner of urlblacklist.com irresponsibly allowed his domain name to expire, which resulted in another 2 month long outage, in which another company took the opportunity to purchase the domain name, which is now registered under an entity named “Dr Guardian” who one can only assume has taken ownership and reopened the website, and is actively processing payments by unsuspecting customers.

They also do not make any mention of ownership changing hands anywhere on their website, a courtesy any respectable business would extend to its existing clients and the general public. Instead of even acknowledging the domain name ownership change. they choose to deceptively place blame for the outage on a billing issue with their registrar.

And I doubt if anybody knows who is really even operating the website. The owner has never responded to emails, doesn’t seem too care if his website goes down until months later, and I suggest that you should seriously consider switching to Squidblacklist.org if you are a current urlblacklist.com subscriber.

A brief visit to urlblacklist.com shows that the owner would like you to believe the second extended outage of 2016 was brief, a deception which is evident in a recent “news” message claiming that “over Christmas vacation” there was an outage, I guess Christmas vacation begins around Nov 10 and ends December 30th.

One can safely assume by looking at the ancient and truly aweful web design of urlblacklist.com and then research its track record of unreliability, and make some general conclusions about its owner and or operators which are to say, generally not favorable at all. And this lack of integrity can also be found in the quality of their blacklists, or lack thereof, which is of course, what really matters.

Urlblacklist.com is an aging website. I would encourage you to use their lists, and monitor the daily changes, you will know first hand that nearly 60% of the domains in their blacklists do not even resolve, a good indicator that there is very poor technology behind the update processes going on behind the scenes. It becomes clear rather quickly that they are pushing old, recycled domain data by systematically removing a set number of domains and re-adding them back using some crude scripts or something, rotating this data in and out in a way which gives the customer the illusion that updates are taking place.

With manual additions and removals being performed occasionally presumably by human hands. Beyond this however, there is obviously zero innovation taking place at urlblacklist.com. Which is evidently ran by an incompetent individual who is doing the world a disservice by continuing to accept payments for what is, in our opinion, hardly passable even as a purely free service.

Shalla and any other websites referring people to this website are also guilty of doing the general public a disservice by linking to urlblacklist.com because clearly anybody who has actually observed or used the lists from these people should come to the same conclusions that we have, and that is urlblacklist.com is an unreliable provider of services that needs to go away.

Also make note that shady clones of urlblacklist.com are also in existence, these domains are registered by totally different owners.
http://schwela.com is one of them.

Using Squidguard and Pfsense to Url Filter with Domain Blacklists from Squidblacklist.org

Using Squidguard and Pfsense to Url Filter with Domain Blacklists.

pfsense Logo

URL filtering is one strategy used to filter access to websites based the domain name and/or url. There are several commercial products available for URL or domain content filtering, but you could easily build a very reliable system on your own using SquidGuard and pfSense. SquidGuard is a useful add on package for the Squid proxy server and can be used to filter or redirect web requests on the network.

SquidGuard has a long list of features that can be tailored to fit your needs. It’s also rather fast and does’nt slow down the internet for your clients. If you do need to block access to a list of unwanted websites or only allow access to a whitelist of specific web sites, SquidGuard can certainly assist with this.

SquidGuard is also very flexible, and it is easy to adapt to different applications. If you intend to do basic URL filtering on your home network or if you need to create some complicated rules for a large private or public network SquidGuard can do it.

Before you can put a web filtering proxy under pfSense into production, some configuraation is required. If you are new to pfSense I might recommend reading through the instructions that shit with pfSense.

Install the package SquidGuard Package

SquidGuard & Squid proxy can both be installed using the pfSense package manager. To access the pfSense package manager, click packs on the system menu. Select the tab available packages and scroll down where you will find SquidGuard and Squid proxy individually, click the plus sign next to each item to begin the installation.

Once the installations are complete you will have a new menu item called proxy services/filter.

Blacklists

To set up domain blacklist, open the general settings page ‘Filter Services & Proxy’. Click the checkbox to activate the domain blacklist.

You can use one of several different domain black lists publicly available on the web. You can also find a list of several blacklists from http://www.squidblacklist.org. We have our blacklists available in multiple formats, but likely, youll want the standard directory formatted archives located at the following url. http://www.squidblacklist.org/downloads/squidblacklists/squidblacklist.tar.gz

Excluding URL blacklist

There may be some places that you need to allow your users to access. To prevent these sites from locking can create a new category of destination and add a list of domains or URLs that should not be blocked.

To do this click the target categories tab, and then click the plus sign to add a new category. You must assign a unique name to the new category, the name you choose can not contain spaces.

The target category can filter by domain name, URL, or an expression. Add a domain site will grant access to the main site and all its sub-pages. Entering a URL allows access only to that exact website. Expressions allow you to grant based on certain keywords access.

When finished, click Save, and then back to the common ACL tab or group (wherever that created the rule) and select and action whitelist for your new category.

You can also use this same method to add additional sites to its blacklist.

Filtering by Expression

In addition to the domain and URL filtering SquidGuard can create filters using regular expressions. These types of filters are great when you want to search for specific text strings in a URL to make a decision for this search. If you are unfamiliar with regular expressions can be a bit confusing at first, but there are many online resources on the subject, so I will not go into much detail about them in this article.

To create a filter that uses an expression, click the target categories tab, or create a new category or edit an existing one. Enter the expression you want to filter in the expression box and then click Save. Then go back to the common or group ACL tab and select the action (deny, permit, etc.) for your target category.

Here are some examples of filter expressions are presented. These can be edited according to what to filter. For more useful information about filtering regular expressions http://www.squidguard.org/Doc/Examples review.

Downloads based on file extension block

(* \ /.* \ (Zip | .. Rar | exe | msi | mpeg | avi))

Block certain TLDs

(.gov | .xxx | Mil | .net)

Block search “bypass proxy” on Google and Yahoo

(.*(google|yahoo).*(search_query|keywords|search|query|q|p)=.*(\+|\%20)*(proxy|bypass).*(\-|\+|\%20).*(proxy|bypass).*)

Programming rules & Time-based rules

SquidGuard also allows you to apply URL filtering based on schedules. Times are useful for applying rules at different times during the day, or only on certain days of the week.

For example, you could apply URL filtering rules strict office hours and automatically disable the rules after 17:00. If you are filtering your home network you may not want the children to visit certain sites during the school week, this is another example in which a time-based rule would be used.

To create a rule-based time, click the time tab and then click the plus sign to create a new schedule. You can create as many different times as you need.

Schedules can be applied using the ACL Groups tab. Create a new ACL or edit an existing group, then click the “time” drop-down box select the schedule you created.

Do not forget to click Apply on the General tab for the settings to take effect.

Chanology Blacklist For Content Filtering

Chanology  Blacklist


Due to demand for such a blacklist, we have published a plain text blacklist containing domain names of ‘anonymous’ or ‘chanology ‘  image board websites.

Worlds largest porn blacklist – adult blacklist.

 

Our adult blacklist has grown significantly over the last couple of years, the db now contains well over 1.3xx,xxx adult domains. As you may know, our objective is to identify every single porn domain in existence, aggressively and by any means necessary.

Our list of pornography domains is  extensive,  and it is growing with every update. It is the largest list of pornography domains available. When combined with a web filtering solution, we are confident that our porn blacklist is the strongest, most effective list for blocking porn at this price point. We have tested the options, we can confidently conclude that none of our competitors come close to matching what we have done with our porn blacklist.

If you are looking for the best adult blacklist you can possibly find, well you just found it. Be aware that approx 750,000+ of these porn domains do not resolve, and therefore put into a temporary delay pool for re query. The actual production porn blacklist you will download is approx 600k live domains. We will give you a diff file with the dead domains upon request.

Updating pfSense and Squidguard Blacklists with Squidblacklist.org

 

pfSense Logo

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

Untitled2

Authentication:
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.
