A while back I noticed Cyveillance, Inc were aggressively spidering my site. I found quite a few other references on the web to their anti-social behavior, including links to the recording industry's heavy-handed and borderline illegal tactics. In order to block them from my network, I compiled a list of their IPs.
It's been some time since I've actively monitored my firewall and over time the list had grown stale. I'd also previously been stymied on doing more research by my inability to figure out the nuances of some RWHOIS systems. Happily I made a breakthrough this week and I've been able to update my list, which I'll share for the good of humanity. The link above has the same list.
# Cyveillance @ Cogent 188.8.131.52/30 184.108.40.206/28 220.127.116.11/29 18.104.22.168/24 22.214.171.124/26 126.96.36.199/30 188.8.131.52/30 184.108.40.206/25 220.127.116.11/27 18.104.22.168/29 22.214.171.124/29 126.96.36.199/30 188.8.131.52/29 184.108.40.206/29 # Cyveillance @ Verizon (incomplete?) 220.127.116.11/27 18.104.22.168/27 22.214.171.124/29 # Previous(?) Cyveillance IPs #126.96.36.199/27 #188.8.131.52/27 #184.108.40.206/27 #220.127.116.11/27
I'll try to update the text file over time to match current reality as best I can, but this blog post will go stale. I'm only putting the IPs here for spiders to find. If you want to use the list on your firewall, download the linked version. The list is admittedly incomplete since I haven't been able to reliably query Verizon for IPs (let alone other possible providers).
Updated 2010-03-28 to add 18.104.22.168/27, which came to me via a comment. Thanks for the tip!
