Blockfinder enumerates network information for countries.

Project Description

blockfinder by Jacob Appelbaum <>, David <>

“All that Blockfinder does is allow you to identify, contact and potentially hack into every computer network in the world.” - Rolling Stone, August 2010 [0]

Contrary to popular media claims, blockfinder is a simple text based console tool that returns a list of netblocks for a given country. It does this by fetching the following lists of allocations:

The list of ISO codes is ISO 3166-1 as found here:

blockfinder has two methods of operation:

Update the lists of network object allocations Returning a list of all netblocks (or asn, etc) for a given country

To use blockfinder, first create or update the cache:

blockfinder -i

Once you have a proper cache, search for the desired resource in the country of your choice:

./blockfinder -v -t mm

Additionally, to filter results for a specific protocol you can use a selector:

./blockfinder -v -t mm:ipv4

On Windows (in cmd, PowerShell and 4nt) one may find blockfinder.bat useful:
