What is UDGER?

UDGER.com is a leader in the detection browsers, mobiles, tablets, Smart TV .., also provides info about IP addresses (proxies, VPN, Tor exit nodes ..).  Since 2005 the Udger team provides services to detect of user agent strings. This project was called user-agent-string.info and was until 2014 freely available. During 2014 they extended the reach of their components and created Udger.com.

The company updates their database several times a day to detect more strings. At Apility.io we have added to our blacklists the following Udger databases:

UDGER-ANONYMIZING-VPN blacklist

This blacklist is an up-to-date collection of IP addresses of VPN providers exit endpoints. VPN providers’ users use these IP addresses to connect anonymously to different services in the net. If you want to ban access from anonymous VPN providers to your services, then this list should be part of your collection.

The list contains about 17.000 IP addresses on average and Apility.io scraping services update it every 6 hours.

UDGER-CGI-PROXY blacklist

This blacklist is an up-to-date collection of open public CGI Proxies worldwide. A CGI (Common Gateway Interface) proxy appears to a user as a web page that allows the user to access a different site through it, in most cases anonymously. Public CGI proxies’ users use these IP addresses to connect anonymously to different services in the net. If you want to ban access from anonymous proxies to your services, then this list should be part of your collection.

The list contains about 300 IP addresses on average and Apility.io scraping services update it every 6 hours.

UDGER-WEB-PROXY blacklist

This blacklist is an up-to-date collection of open public Web Proxies worldwide. Public Web Proxies’ users use these IP addresses to connect anonymously to different services in the net. If you want to ban access from anonymous Proxies to your services, then this list should be part of your collection.

The list contains about 18000 IP addresses on average andApility.io scraping services update it every 6 hours.

UDGER-TOR blacklist

This blacklist is an up-to-date collection of Tor nodes worldwide. It is free software for enabling anonymous communication. It directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of thousands relays to conceal a user’s location and usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Tor network’ users use these IP addresses to connect anonymously to different services in the net. If you want to ban access from Tor to your services, then this list should be part of your collection.

The list contains about 60000 IP addresses on average and Apility.io scraping services update it every 6 hours.

How to enable these new lists

If you are new to Apility.io and you have not signed up yet (it’s free!), then you don’t need to do anything since these lists are enabled by default with all new accounts. If you already have an Apility.io account, then you have to log into the Dashboard, go to Blacklists to enable and disable the lists individually.

Apility.io deselect Free Mail

In the animated GIF above, we are enabling Freemail blacklists. You should do the same with the UDGER lists in the IP addresses tab.
