PeerBlock Review

Fernando Ortega
A simple IP blocking tool which can even block entire countries
A review of PeerBlock by Fernando Ortega

Whether you're an avid IRC user, visit certain types of forums or are vulnerable to attacks through services like Bit Torrent, you'll likely need a way to block certain countries or organizations from "talking" with your computer.

PeerBlock, which derives from Peer Guardian, is an effective tool at blocking hackers or copyright societies from accessing your PC or communicating with you through peer-to-peer networks. Essentially, it blocks either specific IP addresses or blocks of IP addresses.

Many of the known attackers are listed on filesharing forums. You may collect blocks of IP addresses such as governments and simply add them to PeerBlock.

Unfortunately, lists of IP addresses can become outdated fast. That has a negative effect on how well PeerBlock performs. Fortunately, you can also find updated blocks of IP addresses online which can block known hackers and snoopers.

PeerBlock is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from firewalls without restrictions. PeerBlock 1.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
