19:08:12@cyborgninjaneer:matrix.orgcyborgninjaneerI know there are a number of different ones. I’m looking for something that’s thorough and well-maintained.

Do any of you know a source of quality, well-maintained hosts files?
Wut?
20:07:54@xkolib:junta.plxkolibDunno if you are up to with the latest breakthroughs, but there is that s protocol to synchronize or query hosts lists on internet, called the DNS
20:07:57@viagrov:matrix.org@viagrov:matrix.org left the room.
20:16:02@jrb:eightballde.luxeCheeseburger Chihuahua Spicehosts files are used to explicitly override dns. they contain hostnames for know ad or malware networks
20:16:27@jrb:eightballde.luxeCheeseburger Chihuahua Spiceso that you can block the resolver from even resolving them to begin with
20:17:01@jrb:eightballde.luxeCheeseburger Chihuahua Spice I should say often contain... they're useful for other purposes too
20:24:25@cyborgninjaneer:matrix.orgcyborgninjaneerxkolib: Hosts is useful for overriding DNS to prevent connections to certain domains, such as know spyware, malware, and analytics domains.
20:57:25@xkolib:junta.plxkolibOk that makes sense. Could mentioned it in question ;)
21:08:49@takeitdowntommy:matrix.thomcat.rockstakeitdowntommy cyborgninjaneer: I'd just run Pihole w/ Unbound and find some good anti-malware blocklists, and point all your DNS traffic at it. This obviously doesn't stop assholes from trying to hit your IP, but it's a good start.
21:26:00@jrb:eightballde.luxeCheeseburger Chihuahua Spice changed their display name from jrb to Cheeseburger Chihuahua Spice.
22:58:22@cyborgninjaneer:matrix.orgcyborgninjaneerI was just going to set up hosts as a more reliable way to block analytics, but then I realized I can get some extra security out of it too.

16:37:08@cyborgninjaneer:matrix.orgcyborgninjaneerHm. So there’s a new DNS protocol, DNS over https.
16:43:52@pengnuin:matrix.orgpengnuin Yes, that's a thing. It's very good in certain situations.
