So pfBlocker does exactly what it says on the tin

So I was looking for a way of reducing the amount of attacks on my main server. I thought there must be a way of GEO locating IP addresses and blocking, usually Russian attacks on my contact forms. And there is! It’s called pfBlocker, downloads new spam lists every night and seems currently, ‘just to work’. Will monitor for a few more days but first impressions are it works great, not a single hit on either mail or web server. I though there may be an issue with mail as if I drop the connection the sending server will then try and send via a backup server, but it looks like the backup server has a similar spam setup and also refuses the connection. Lets see how it gets on.
