Hacker Blocker is the Only Firewall Updating Software & Service
Hacker Blocker works by updating the native Windows Firewall IP block lists with over 400 million verified hackers, spammers and bots from around the world. Each one of these IPs and CIDRs are verified, vetted and confirmed before being added to our list. Right now, we have one of the most comprehensive list of known hackers in the world. We update this list constantly, as our central station receives reports of attacks from our clients, verifies and adds them to the block list. The more they attack our clients, the stronger our protection becomes.
Windows Firewall is updated by Hacker Blocker every 15 minutes, downloading our block list and updating the rules in the Firewall. Hacker Blocker runs as a service, so can be used in Virtual Environments, even protect entire networks. Networks that install our software have seen up to a 90% drop in bandwidth usage immediately, with a corresponding drop in power usage and heat production, resulting in longer hardware life.
Many web servers run on WHM (Web Host Manager), a software for configuring your hosting server. Our update server will update your Firewall automatically using secure FTP every 15 minutes to keep it updated against the latest attacks.
3rd Party Firewalls
For using 3rd Party Firewalls, subscribers can download CSV files of IP Block Rules for easy import. Our CSV files include our complete list of blocked CIDRs and IPs. If you require a different format, contact our team.
For non-dedicated PHP websites such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, we update your .htaccess file every 15 minutes.
How Our Block List is Compiled
Every day, websites, servers and PC are attacked by hackers and spammers. These cyber-criminals, usually from
We've created a system that reports attacks on websites and servers across the country to our central station, where we research their origin and if they are a hacker, block them. Part of our research involves vetting these IPs with online reporting agencies, often obtaining the CIDR of that IP. If it is a foreign network, and other IPs have been reported as well, we add the entire network to our list. Our block list changes constantly, as new IPs are reported, vetted, reviewed and added by our dedicated team.
Our list includes Hackers, Spammers and 'Bot Bots', mainly from overseas; but we do have a number of US based IPs, most from compromised web hosting servers. We're very careful about blocking IPs and CIDRs from America, so even government agencies can safely use our software without blocking legitimate traffic.
