It's been the subject of debate for quite some time amongst many experts with no real way to test the lists, at least until the Media Defender email leak.When Slyck investigated, there was a common theme that blocklists seemingly jumped over several ranges used by Media Defender.After some extensive study using the Level1 list for anti-p2p companies and the 'Paranoid' list, Blue Tack would have successfully blocked 16 IPs.Slyck began the investigation when Blue Tack's 'Paranoid' IP filter blocked one of TVUnderground's new e Donkey2000 servers. is a site dedicated to improving the safety and awareness of all our members and guests, providing News, Security articles, Software Reviews, Technical Support, Guides, IP Research and Free Software needed to help us keep our connections to the net and each other safe, secure, and free from unwelcome intruders."
