I have had multiple requests for the script we have been using, so here it
is for eveyone. If you improve on it, or see any issues with it (hopefully
there are no issues since we have been using it for a few years J ) please
let me know . and yes, that long while-do line was a personal challenge that
started small, l and grew to something I had to defeat J

We have been using the following for many years now
http://rules.emergingthreats.net/fwrules/emerging-Block-IPs.txt on our
border CISCO ASA firewalls with great success and little to no issues. A
script pulls the new list, compares it with the old one and applies the
delta.  We are currently switching to PaloAlto FWs and it appears that
scripting/importing this large list may not be as easy as it was with the


Can those of you who use the ET list with PaloAlto give us some
feedback/scripts/API on how you implemented it? We are also considering
moving it to our border CISCO router either as an ACL or as a Null route,
any feedback with the latter and/or scripts you may be using? My primary
concern with using Null route is the fact that as far as I understand it, it
can only block outbound traffic. The router ACL can accomplish blocking
in/out, but my concern is with performance. What say you?
