Why We Created HackerIPBlocker
We created HackerIPBlocker because our own servers were being attacked every day by hackers and spammers, increasing server load and filling our email boxes with spam. When one of our websites was hacked in 2015 we decided enough was enough.
After we cleaned up the server and updated our security, we discovered that our server firewall didn't block hacker IPs without us entering them in, one by one. So, we started tracking attacks on our websites, vetting the attacker IPs, then entering them into our Firewall, every day. Our developers found ways to automate the process, and combine our list with AbuseIPDB's, instead of waiting for hackers to find us.
After months of work, we have compiled a list of thousands of IPs that have attacked our servers, and verified them through reporting agencies. Our overall attacks have dropped from 7000+ per day to less than 5, and server processor usage has dropped 85%.
We now offer access to our HoneyPot to everyone, including Windows® Servers, PCs and Laptops, and Linux based webservers. HackerIPBlocker is the only Windows Firewall Updating service that blocks thousands of known IPs used by Hackers and Spammers automatically. Subscribers can download the latest version for Windows®, and files to protect websites, WHM webservers and 3rd party firewalls.
