This Blacklist Updater script was originally written by Gavin Vickery. I only rewrote stage 4 of the script to update the categories. I also added a very simple script to automatically run updates on a weekly basis, organized the file structure, and wrote some how to documentation.

I have been running the blacklist updater script for several months in a production environment successfully, which is an American public school.

The black list is Shallalist updated by Shalla Secure Services.  Please abide by their licence (license) register using their licence link. You can also submit URLs, browse categories, and search for URL/Domains on their site.

Enjoy.

In my instructions included with the black list updater I forgot to add that the scripts need to be marked as executable. Therefore...

After using WinSCP to copy the files to the scripts folder and cron.weekly folder right click the file and choose properties, then check executable.

Awesome Job! Thank You!

I had an issue during copy of the py file getting converted to a DOS file, got this error:
": bad interpreter: No such file or directory/usr/bin/python"

I'm unsure that it wasn't because of how I did it since I run a Mac and couldn't follow your directions to a T.

BTW the way I overcame the file format error was to start a new file in nano over ssh on the endian box and just copy and paste the stuf from your py file then save and it automatically saved in the correct (UNIX) format.

ALSO: For the un-LINUXed such as myself the command to make the files executable is "chmod +x /etc/scripts/blacklist_updater_2.py" and chmod +x /etc/cron.weekly/updateblacklists" in putty while connected to Endian.

But mostly just wanted to say "Thank You" to you and Gavin Vickery for the great work.

Great WORK!!! Thank You!

obviously i'm only a newbie here but - to make the script work - seem to need editing the script (also with notepad for the win user) and put a space after the firts !
so the first line will result as this (without quote) "! \usr\bin\pythoon"  (please note there is a space between ! and \

after thant (and a good chmod 777 /etc/script/* ) it work like a charm!

please let me say THANKS to anyone contribute to this script and this forum!

Actually, you shouldn't use notepad to edit Linux files. You will likely find the file is not formated correctly after saving it. Mostly Notepad uses a different code to indicate a carriage return. In fact, I've seen Linux files edited with Notepad be treated as corrupt files.

Instead, WINSCP has a nice editor built into it. Just right click the file and choose "Edit." If you prefer not to use WINSCP use Windows Write or Wordpad instead.

The file is located at the bottom of the initial post. You must be logged in to see it. It does include a script to auto update the black list categories.

hello,
i have this error whit my endian 2.4.1:

 File "./blacklist_updater_21.py", line 48

                                                        ^

The entire line should be:

   if os.path.isfile(blacklistsubDirTMP + "domains") or os.path.isfile(blacklistsubDirTMP + "urls"):


Keep in mind, these are Linux files. If you used a DOS text editor, such as Notepad, the file will become corrupt. If you are using WinSCP it has a built-in editor that won't corrupt the file, just right click the file you want to work on.

Hopefully this helps.

Ohifra,
My only thought is that the file isn't actually there, or the folder or file are mis-named. Also, make sure the files are marked as executable:

The command to make the files executable is "chmod +x /etc/scripts/blacklist_updater_2.py" and "chmod +x /etc/cron.weekly/updateblacklists" in putty while connected to Endian.

Or if you prefer a GUI:

Use WinSCP to copy the files to the scripts folder and cron.weekly folder, then right click the file and choose properties, then check executable.

Good luck.
