Tip: Block Spammers

If you are getting to many fake results, maybe you need to block a bunch of nasty hosts out there and use the “Mark as Junk” feature a little bit more. Here’s an updated list of Blocked IPs.

STEP 1
With a text editor open “frostwire.props”

Windows users:

%APPDATA%\FrostWire\frostwire.props

Mac Users:

~/Library/Preferences/FrostWire/frostwire.props

Linux Users:

~/.frostwire/frostwire.props

STEP 2
Look for “BLACK_LISTED_IP_ADDRESSES”, if you can’t find it, just paste the following list. If you already got some in there, copy the list of IPs and append at the end of your existing list (right after putting a “;” at the end of your existing list). It should all end up on a single line (no \n)

BLACK_LISTED_IP_ADDRESSES=64.46.32.0/19;24.44.237.*;82.69.119.*;70.15.80.0/21;204.11.216.0/21;64.210.192.*;201.13.65.*;70.47.0.0/16;207.99.0.0/17;216.17.104.0/21;24.15.205.*;83.22.155.*;64.231.202.*;96.194.45.91;142.164.*.*;207.248.32.0/20;88.102.6.*;66.254.96.0/19;68.188.91.*;213.121.151.*;149.76.162.*;68.59.87.*;24.63.26.*;87.117.192.0/18;68.80.186.*;122.2.58.*;69.44.158.*;65.206.51.*;85.0.88.*;208.100.0.0/18;160.10.7.*;216.139.208.0/20;206.48.0.*;149.254.192.*;62.101.124.0/22;75.111.128.*;209.51.160.0/19;61.63.32.0/19;24.138.128.0/18;216.240.128.0/19;212.76.37.*;76.177.26.*;67.193.47.*;88.63.219.*;67.15.66.*;81.152.16.*;69.44.156.*;66.225.168.*;91.34.191.*;46.46.*.*;200.77.161.*;85.92.156.0/22;206.223.156.*;207.150.176.0/20;82.109.207.*;216.151.63.*;141.117.28.*;89.244.230.*;24.62.58.*;72.16.216.*;217.75.4.*;142.177.136.0/22;66.28.207.*;72.24.250.*;71.87.71.*;153.5.20.*;66.203.189.*;8.17.1.*;24.36.141.*;72.236.184.*;74.208.0.0/18;64.124.0.0/15;66.135.32.0/19;174.36.163.21;205.209.128.0/18;75.42.28.208/29;121.91.91.*;209.237.224.0/22;63.216.0.0/13;87.236.192.0/21;216.166.159.*;142.177.156.*;152.9.102.*;72.13.143.*;130.192.157.*;144.26.129.*;68.37.42.*;216.211.73.*;196.207.45.*;72.158.46.*;68.149.65.*;70.69.180.*;209.67.0.*;24.90.134.*;67.81.145.*;82.148.111.*;72.159.145.*;24.57.54.*;142.166.0.0/15;208.107.164.*;206.161.0.0/16;216.219.96.*;58.13.92.0/22;206.108.253.*;78.63.137.*;85.88.2.*;81.110.162.*;161.31.240.*;83.78.155.*;90.200.66.*;83.79.188.*;216.171.176.0/20;24.117.29.*;78.129.137.*;69.41.160.0/19;68.51.86.*;76.76.0.0/20;219.17.82.*;67.183.178.*;158.103.0.*;142.177.231.*;75.209.52.0/22;216.66.0.0/18;69.44.157.*;72.39.51.*;194.126.193.*;121.156.65.*;187.22.19.31;54.28.106.216;201.8.117.*;206.222.0.0/19;66.232.96.0/19;204.111.*.*;206.71.56.*;68.178.128.0/17;207.134.9.*;64.27.0.0/19;65.56.0.0/14;76.98.150.*;201.58.164.*;89.244.221.*;65.206.55.*;75.63.77.*;203.87.184.0/22;196.40.10.*;67.172.29.*;24.231.64.0/19;216.118.64.0/18;209.87.248.*;208.0.231.*;81.23.40.0/20;78.111.64.0/20;128.108.*.*;82.37.91.*;98.142.216.129;79.13.68.*;206.169.230.*;64.89.27.*;216.7.80.0/20;71.214.186.*;98.142.216.132;134.129.*.*;98.142.216.136;207.189.232.*;66.160.128.0/18;75.164.67.*;196.207.32.*;61.129.251.*;60.190.222.0/23;62.90.172.0/22;80.218.228.44;98.142.216.137;69.90.242.*;64.5.64.0/18;86.127.221.*;70.44.88.*;74.254.71.*;208.53.128.0/18;64.62.128.0/17;200.140.63.*;213.156.52.*;193.120.116.*;74.195.51.*;72.63.47.*;74.139.162.0/23;209.190.0.0/17;65.39.185.*;207.7.135.*;161.31.226.*;201.86.254.*;199.120.31.*;76.25.126.*;74.60.79.*;98.142.216.144;216.232.244.*;67.55.64.0/18;65.171.151.*;66.246.248.*;66.211.0.0/20;204.8.32.0/22;208.54.240.0/20;216.158.128.0/19;67.163.243.*;98.142.216.159;82.80.4.*;81.190.139.*;205.129.164.*;24.80.116.*;61.211.131.*;66.115.128.*;121.1.52.0/20;208.99.192.0/19;71.238.152.*;144.80.248.*;89.246.0.0/18;121.3.31.*;69.10.128.0/19;65.19.128.0/18;201.150.79.*;142.162.*.*;98.142.216.152;64.61.25.192/26;70.71.160.91;208.115.234.*;72.9.109.*;205.177.186.*;144.80.132.*;208.109.*.*;69.146.145.*;60.190.220.0/23;72.9.108.*;216.255.176.0/20;82.79.63.*;61.224.228.*;66.90.64.0/18;71.95.242.143;155.47.149.*;98.142.216.163;219.107.128.*;98.142.216.165;156.34.27.*;64.208.0.0/16;66.195.171.*;72.172.88.0/22;66.30.80.*;69.64.64.0/19;83.110.232.*;65.49.0.0/18;68.180.0.0/22;69.50.160.0/19;75.74.83.*;129.47.128.0/17;64.93.89.*;64.21.0.0/17;65.72.0.0/16;209.217.223.*;216.104.224.*;142.177.185.0/21;201.9.120.*;72.36.128.0/17;85.17.155.*;213.22.162.*;84.130.118.*;69.44.155.*;64.111.192.0/19;66.207.254.*;216.25.44.*;64.61.25.160/29;61.129.70.*;60.254.213.*;156.34.240.0/22;209.115.255.*;64.234.98.5;12.1.42.0/23;71.6.128.0/17;63.243.181.*;213.47.248.0/22;69.85.192.0/18;84.181.212.*;76.166.215.*;216.130.64.0/19;216.231.162.*;69.42.128.0/19;78.129.136.*;85.88.9.*;209.237.240.0/20;216.7.183.*;69.248.209.*;208.122.192.0/19;222.73.192.0/18;24.100.7.249;201.95.128.*;205.177.0.0/16;209.59.110.*;64.203.191.*;210.132.220.*;209.143.224.*;64.56.64.0/21;69.119.111.*;205.139.208.0/22;206.75.43.*;69.72.161.*;90.193.8.*;74.63.64.0/19;83.20.112.*;68.96.101.*;66.199.176.0/23;82.83.208.*;69.87.230.*;70.84.0.0/14;83.148.8.*;208.9.112.0/21;167.216.232.*;71.120.54.*;65.120.42.*;205.211.145.*;206.132.32.0/20;208.101.0.0/18;85.124.173.*;24.94.7.*;64.93.88.*;24.114.252.*;72.35.224.0/20;209.160.35.*;216.218.128.0/17;93.114.253.248;208.50.0.*;65.16.61.*;9.88.78.245;201.9.128.0/17;84.10.36.*;66.79.160.0/19;200.210.234.*;216.166.216.*;130.49.116.251;90.240.187.206;67.56.0.0/15;24.213.149.*;64.25.180.*;216.159.201.*;69.248.198.*;79.184.7.*;66.193.224.*;67.202.64.0/19;209.160.32.*;67.159.0.0/18;81.76.91.*;63.79.245.*;216.66.64.0/19;66.220.0.0/19;216.205.217.*;83.142.224.0/21;64.210.144.*;130.117.*.*;71.68.34.*;206.132.0.0/19;61.129.51.*;68.42.176.*;58.168.29.*;220.239.43.*;212.25.103.*;24.227.222.*;99.35.18.113;213.167.96.*;216.169.96.0/19;63.243.162.*;64.61.25.72/28;75.126.*.*;63.47.128.*;89.244.240.*;24.65.77.*;125.0.0.0/15;66.28.203.*;66.171.74.0/23;2

The next version FrostWire will update this list automatically for you, for now, you’ll have to hack away a little bit your frostwire.props file and restart FrostWire.
