Virbl is a project which gets reports of virusscanning mailservers, and put the IP-addresses that were reported to send viruses on a blacklist.


We’ve changed Virbl today, which makes it the first fully IPv6 enabled dnsbl, as far as we can tell. You could already reach Virbl via IPv6 for years, but no IPv6 hosts were served by the nameserver. rbldnsd, on which we ran Virbl before, does not understand IPv6 in its zones.

We changed some things today:
  1. We implemented a way to list machines with IPv6 and privacy-extensions
  2. We switched from rbldnsd to Bind
  3. We’ve changed the website so the changes made in ‘1’ are visible on the website as well
