Thread: IP block not working

    Default IP block not working

    I just had a hack attempt via a Facebook friend's compromised account. He sent me a link to a malicious YouTube lookalike site. After noting a few warning signs, including that the URL didn't tally, I went into ZA advanced settings to add a rule to block the IP address. The link the hacker sent led to ~~snip~~ address I entered to block as both a source and destination IP address. My problem is that when I tested it, it didn't work. Firefox still had no hesitation in going to that site. Anyone got any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

    Many times there are multiple servers under one URL.

    So you just blocked one server but it went to another.

    You have to figure out all the IP addresses they have.

    Not easily done.

    Sorry, I see I never thanked you for this reply.

    That is helpful to know. I wonder if ZA can be set to block a URL instead of a an IP addr ...
