The blacklists are the heart of every URL Filter!
You can choose between several free and commercial distributions of blacklists on the net or create and use your own (or any combination of them).
SquidGuard comes with a small blacklist basically for testing purposes. In production you don’t want to use them. A better way is to start with one of the blacklist collections listed (alphabetically) below.
- MESD blacklists
They are freely available.
- Shalla’s Blacklists
Free for non commercial/privat use; commercial usage requires a feedback contract at no additional costs; selling the lists is not free of charge. More than 1.5 million entries. Updated regularly.
- UniversitÃ© Toulouse blacklist collection
