PeerBlock: Creepy Smart Way To Protect Yourself (From Everything & Everyone)

March 13, 2010

Simple concept:  PeerBlock stops all of the crazy IPs that want to access your computer from accessing it.  And let me tell you, there are A LOT OF CRAZY entities that want your information.  Just take a look at the screeshot I captured of my PeerBlock doing what it does best: blocking my peers. Although in this case, my peers seem to be the DoD and ClearBlue technologies.

It’s definitely creepy, but I advise EVERYONE WHO HAS A COMPUTER TO DOWNLOAD PEERBLOCK…like..NOW.

Here is the link:  Peerblock

From the site:

“PeerBlock lets you control who your computer “talks to” on the Internet.  By selecting appropriate lists of “known bad” computers, you can block communication with advertising or spyware oriented servers, computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been “hacked”, even entire countries!  They can’t get in to your computer, and your computer won’t try to send them anything either.”

UPDATE:

If you have a Mac, try Little Snitch
