Blocking Ecatel

Ecatel seem to host a rather large number of malicious hosts, and there doesn’t seem to be any downside to blocking them completely. If you use iptables the following will drop all traffic from the current Ecatel address ranges. Adjust as appropriate to suit your firewall of choice.


iptables -I INPUT -s 80.82.64.0/20 -j DROP
iptables -I INPUT -s 89.248.160.0/20 -j DROP
iptables -I INPUT -s 93.174.88.0/21 -j DROP
iptables -I INPUT -s 94.102.48.0/20 -j DROP
