DNSBL with FraudBL

dnsbl.tornevall.org v5.0.0 has just been released so we are now fully synched with FraudBL. The docs regarding the API has been updated, which you can read here: http://docs.tornevall.net/x/EYBu.

There is an ongoing project with TorneLIB which has a standalone project for handling our API. It’s not ready for release, but you can review the upcoming script at the dev-site here!

If you recently contacted us about removal and you seem to be relisted, the release of version 5 may be the cause, and the fact that some hosts has not been properly updated in both our databases.

dnsbl@tornevall.org

FraudBL status update.

FraudBL is currently up and running and while we are typing this post, we are collecting spam from ”phishing sites”. As we are counting, approximately 1200 hosts are flagged ”phishing” in our database. In short, this database will get a zone update so we can start using it. What we are actually waiting for is dnsbl.tornevall.org and the last migration steps.

Work in progress

We have’nt updated for a while, so it may be time for that now. The work is in progress but due to lack of time in private, it has taken longer than expected. But we’re still  here, still taking DNSBL requests by support@tornevall.net (with a SLA based on quick response time). Our SSL certificates are getting updated and currently, we’re on A-level (referring to sslabs tests). The new platform is still only available offline, but since this text is written with the help of that platform, there is some kind of confirmation of the progress,

In the meantime, you may want to have a look at this link, if you need further support. The forum is currently low-frequently updated, so we need a kickstart with it.But it’s still a community so it may be a good idea to take a look there.

Our documentation site is also up and running here.

To be continued…

DNS Blacklist – dnsbl.tornevall.org ?

Since many of you visitors actually asked for it: Yes, it’s still there. We are still alive. We are however a little bit delayed in our process. We’re working on moving everything to the same domain, since SSL certificates cost. Having more than one wildcard certificate is way too inefficient – and that’s why dnsbl.tornevall.org has been removed from our roadmap – for now.

So for the moment, all requests are handled manually: Removal requests can be sent to support@tornevall.net. Our primary SLA on this case is high, so hopefully you’ll get a response as soon as possible (normally immediately up to 12 hours).
