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
