spamhaus drop etc.

Greetings All,

I am planning to add the spamhaus drop and possibly edrop list(s) to bogon filters on our internet router.

Has anyone experience doing this? Care to share results and how much care & feeding this effort will entail over time?

Thank You,

John

I don't think there has ever been an issue.. they seem to be pretty conservative. -- -- Justin Azoff -- Network Security & Performance Analyst

spamhaus drop etc.

We have been using the Emerging Threats block list for a couple of years now.  It is available in several formats for common firewalls.  The only issue we had was when our communications department started hosting news on Yahoo’s hosting service.  We tailored our scripts to remove those IPs if found.  We are about ready to fully automate it.
