Wizcrafts has been publishing .htaccess formatted IP blocklists (a.k.a. blacklists), for Apache-based websites, since 2005. They are used by many webmasters to deny access to spammers, scammers, scrapers, harvesters and server exploiters. Now, due to numerous requests, we are making the same IP blocklists available in a format suitable for use in many software and hardware firewalls, especially those running on Linux based operating systems. These are not advanced policy firewall rules, just straight, one-per-line IP addresses, or CIDRs, that are used in advanced policy firewalls (APF) as includes.

This page is not a tutorial in the use of these blocklists; there are plenty available on the 'Net (use the searchbox below). You can visit R-FX Networks for details about their APF project. The iptables blocklists below are for people who already know how to apply them to their servers, or firewalls. You must have Root access to the server to install these iptables blocklists. If you don't have root access, use our .htaccess blocklists instead.

The following is our Chinese iptables firewall blocklist. Applying it to a Linux based web server will block access to all services, to visitors and bots located in China, Korea, Malaysia, Phillipines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Copy, paste and save the blocklist as a plain ascii text file, usually named deny_hosts.rules, then upload it to your Linux server, typically to: "/etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules"   Every IP or CIDR listed in the file, one per line, is denied access by default. See How to install APF (Advanced Policy Firewall), for installation details and command syntaxes.

For webmasters lacking root access to their servers, we publish .htaccess format blocklists, for use on individual Apache-based websites. All you require is FTP or file manager upload access and the ability to see unhide and edit your .htaccess file, with "Mod_Access" Overrides.
