DNS Blackhole.conf update

This information is probably 2-3 years old by the time you see this, but I'm recording it for posterity.

In Smoothwall 2, there's an application that updates /etc/blackhole.conf, but it hasn't done that in a while because the old site www.bleedingthreats.net doesn't provide spyware blacklists updates.

A replacement can be found from malwaredomains.

Simply edit:
/usr/local/bin/blackhole.pl

Change $host entry to www.malwaredomains.com
change $get entry to /files/spywaredomains.zones

That's all.

Awesome! Glad you stopped by! I would suggest you add this one instead of www.gwy.org, as the latter isn't updated much if at all.
