Missing or incorrect data in zone files

Some of our zone data file users are complaining about IP errors, missing IP blocks or even incorrect data. Unfortunately, we do compile data from regional registries: Ripe, Arin, Apnic, Afrinic, Lacnic and IANA. If the registry has an missing IP block in their data files we will miss this IP block in our country zones files as well.

If you have complaints about IP zones that are wrong or not updated, please contact your local registry and ask them to change this information.

    I mention the 118.x addresses because I had a couple of them knocking on my 443 port even though I had OTRW Asiablock running. I think Asiablock gets most of its data files from IP Deny.

    Congratulations for the professional work of IPdeny team.

    Please let me to do two question:

    If you see this link (Into GeoLite Country – download): http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geolite
    And compare with IPdeny, you will see that the list of IPdeny is quite out of date.
    Recently I’ve configured my firewall (iptables – ipset) to block all IP/ports from eastern countries, but unfortunately my work was in vain because of the lack of many IPs address list in IPdeny, and now I receive a lot of mail SPAM because my Frewall don’t is configurated as I wanted with all IPs corresponding.


    1- Can you update the IPs address list
    2- If the answer is yes, when will it be ready?

    IPdeny is a exellent proyect, please guys put on batteries

    Best regards

    Here is a /16 that is doing a lot of probes and is not in the cn list.

    Thanks for your work on these lists! They are a great tool.

    You might want to add KRNIC to your scans as your Korea file is missing a large number of networks that KRNIC controls. Your Korea file contains 331 networks. My file that includes KRNIC has 960 networks (a significant difference).

    There are well over a thousand netblock entries missing from the CN zone.

    Hello and thanks for your report.
    It looks like APNIC has not updated these blocks in their zone files – we pull info from there….

    We pull data from APNIC zone files – I guess they have not updated this block in their DB (zone files?)…

    We pull data from regional registries. If regional registry like RIPE, APNIC doesn’t have such information in their DB – the IP block(s) will be missed from our zone files…. also, please keep in mind that we do not have any full time staff (this is a free service) and we do not generate any income to hire a staff to manually update each IP block etc and respond all inquiries in one business day. Thanks for your comments!

    Thank you for your follow up. This IP block is not in APNIC published DB records….. as soon as they update their DB, we will probably include it in our records/zone files.

    I checked the AUstralia zone today(23 August) and it is completley different than the list I had few days ago. A large number of ip blocks are missing from australia’s zone file.
    Can I get the old zone file (19- august 2013)?

    First of all, thanks to IPDeny for your jobs.

    I use iptables with a bash script to download your files and add rules to deny countries in my servers.

    Some weeks ago we saw that some country files as es.zone (for example) has 0bytes of content. This files continues with 0 bytes now.

    If we go to http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/ the file es.zone has contents
    SPAIN (ES) [download zone file] Size: 6.38 KB
    But if we click in download zone file, the files has 0bytes.

    If we download (from the same page)

    Zone files last updated:

    Download compressed tar archive with all zone files in it: all-zones.tar.gz

    This file has 0 bytes too.

    I dont know what happens. Is there any solution to obtain the files with the ip contents to use it?

    Thank you 🙂

    Just wanted to inform you that most of your zone files are either 0 bytes (regardless of what the site itself says), and all have matching md5 sums. Which indicates something went wrong somewhere during your last update of the zone files. If you could fix it, that would be great as I uses this pretty routinely for iptables and firewalls.

    Network from cv.zone is a duplicate, ignored.
    Network from mz.zone is a duplicate, ignored.

    The UNITED KINGDOM (GB) list contains which includes some Canonical servers in Boston, MA. If traffic is blocked to this /21, apt updates which use archive.ubuntu.com will fail. FWIW

    In short, should not be on the GB list.

    This is a US based IP in PA, seems to be an infected machine, always attempting brute access to one of my web servers.

    Please add it to us.zone
