I am looking for something for linux/gnome along the lines of Malwarebytes' ip blocker. Basically use a blacklist and block http requests if one of those ips/domains are called. I know Firefox blacklists but I know on my Windows 7 machine that the Malwarebytes' ip blocker caught a lot of things that Firefox's didn't.

Uncomplicated FireWall (UFW) is ubuntu's equivalent tool.

That is a firewall and yes I use iptables already. I am looking for something that does malwarebytes blacklisting ability. – MrStatic Aug 12 '10 at 12:44
Isn't blacklisting the point of a firewall? I guess there's iplist if you want a GUI – sml Aug 13 '10 at 0:47
Maybe you could be more specific, for people who aren't familiar with MalwareBytes' blacklisting? It sounds a lot like a firewall from what you said – rotard Nov 30 '10 at 15:38
