    Hellon,
    I have upgraded from Nod32 v3 to v4.0.437.0. The version 3 used to block by default a warez web site (...*-bb...). The version 4 no longer blocks it. Why ?

    Importing a list in order to block web sites

    Does Nod32 v4 has a list for blocking web sites ?
    In Web access protection -> HTTP/HTTPS address : I see 3 empty lists.
    One for excluding from filtering, one for blocking web URL and the last for authorized addresses.

    First question : does nod32 v4 still automatically block dangerous websites ?

    I have the choice to block websites manually but but ... I saw "Add from the file".
    Second question : where can I find such a file containing bad websites ?
    I was thinking at a list found on malwaredomains.com or a similar list ?

    Please, help me, nobody answered yet.

    Thank you.

    the sites it does allready block on it's own, probably comes with your virus definition updates automatically in one of those update files.

    It certainly would be nice to be able to add domains from malwaredomains.com - does anyone have instructions to do this?

    \perl\bin\perl -ne "print \"$1\n\" if (/^\t+(.*?)\t/)" < domains.txt >domain_out.txt

    However, the list is currently too large to import. I'll have a word with our developers to see if we can increase the limit in future builds.

    You are right. Nod32 just blocked msgdiscovery without the need for me to add it to the list.
