We've been running RPZ live for 4 weeks with Spamhaus' feed.
* No false positives (the trial was publically announced with encouragement
for people to complain if they thought they were being inappropriately censored;
1 complaint; was valid censoring).
* ~5000 blocked requests (as reported by our CNAME/walled garden web site). ie. ~160 per day
* 76 domains were blocked (i.e lots of requests to those 76)
* 60+ computers were 'protected'
We're a small organisation (~ 150 people).
Meanwhile our university has undergone a little bit a heightened threat from phishing
and other attacks. The university's security organisation is becoming more interested
in RPZ as a component of their general defence.
Hats off to P. Vixie / ISC, and many thanks to Spamhaus.
Hugo Connery, Head of IT, DTU Environment
