Hosts File Update


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Hello all,

Something that I read here with regards to Pi-hole and is also, I think, applicable to uBlock Origin.

Quote

When hosting stuff like blocklists on GitHub, please make sure you do not use raw.githubusercontent.com links. Since these links don’t provide the last-modified header, they will get re-downloaded every single time pihole -g is run (or each week automatically) even if there are no new changes. That’s a waste of time and bandwidth

I tried NOT using the raw.githubusercontent.com links that I have posted a while back and insted use

https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts_browser
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts_optional
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/MiningServerIPList.txt
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list.txt
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser.txt
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_optional.txt
https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser_UBO.txt

within my uBlock Origin AND my Pi-hole and all seems to work "better?" responce time is faster.

 

Side note: The link provided host one MASSIVE blocking list broken up in couple of files and whitelist file.

The CoinBlocker one I've been using in uBlock Origin is this:

That is the old link the new link is,

https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser.txt

your link will still work but don’t provide the last-modified header.

Thank you hazelnut.  Got it. 

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

Hello all,

If my memory serves, someone was looking for a massive list of host files....

Well, here is a variety for you all that I stumbled upon somehow.

(My memory of posting that link in the past fails me though :blink::blink:)

That URLs own malware blocking one is relatively large.

I noted that as well.

Lets say one combines all the entries into one list and 50% is duplicates.

The amount of unique entries will still be one massive amount and the lists will just keep on growing day by day....

Thanks as always

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

sounds like he may be on the wrong side of the grass. :(

thanks for those links Andavari, I've only ever bothered with MVPS, may be time to use those others now.

If dealing with multiple HOSTS files it helps to have a tool like the no longer developed and homepageless HostsXpert that works very well in Windows XP up to Windows 10. In it you can import multiple HOSTS files, and even sort them which will remove all those comments and nuke any duplicates. Plus it's 100% portable! It's what Nergal mentioned years ago and after seeing his recommendation I started using it.

It's still archived and available at:
