my-pihole-blocklists

Create custom pi-hole blocklists to block unwanted traffic to a network.

Disclaimer

This project is in no way affiliated with the core Pi-Hole project or organization. This project was created as a contribution to the community by providing high quality blocklists. Use at your own risk.

Screenshots

Pi-hole dashboard with the default, light, and heavy porn blocklists installed;

Running with default ruleset Top 1m (Light List) All (Heavy List)

And the affect of having the porn list installed;

Site Blocked!

Supported lists

Currently supported lists;

  1. porn (via create_blocklist_porn.pl which creates two lists)
    ... light list: pi_blocklist_porn_top1m.list (~21k domains). This list is a correlated list to only block porn sites that appear on Alex'a top 1m site list.
    ... heavy list: pi_blocklist_porn_all.list (~2m domains). This list is a slightly edited list from Université Toulouse 1 Capitole. NOTE: Use caution when using this list with embedded computers.
  2. more coming soon...

Requirements

  • Perl
  • Array::Utils (install via sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Array::Utils')

Installation

  1. SSH to deployed pi-hole
  2. Copy adlists.default to adlists.list sudo cp /etc/pihole/adlists.default /etc/pihole/adlists.list
  3. Edit sudo vi /etc/pihole/adlists.list to add one of the following lists;
    ... Light: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chadmayfield/pihole-blocklists/master/lists/pi_blocklist_porn_top1m.list
    ... Heavy https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chadmayfield/pihole-blocklists/master/lists/pi_blocklist_porn_all.list
  4. Run pihole -g to update all lists
pi¾pi-hole:´ $ pihole -g

NOTE: This is a work in progress and is being actively developed (for now).

TODO

  • Cleanup the code! (most of this was written as PoC)
  • Log output from script to file rather than STDOUT
  • Add comparison to Alexa top 1 million sites to only block the top sites
  • Add cron script to run from cron daily/weekly/monthly
  • Add installation script for automated install
  • Add additional lists to combine into one mega list
  • Possibly generizie script to accept any list
  • Add instructions to host the list on the pi-host itself
  • Add the Cisco Umbrella OpenDNS Top 1 Million list
  • Add the Majestic Million list
  • Add the Stavoo Top 1 Million list
