Easy DNSBL querying

Project description

A first stab at writing something that could be construed as a python script. Aims to simplify querying multiple DNSBLs.


Run the program with an argument of either an IP address, domain name, AS number, or MD5/SHA1 hash. If no argument is given, drop into a python shell with dnsbl_query imported as a library.

To utilize HTTBL, provide the DNSBLResults instance with auth_tokens={‘HTTPBL’: ‘<your_api_key>’}.

>>> from ezdnsbl import DNSBLResults
>>> results = DNSBLResults('', auth_tokens={'HTTPBL': '<your_api_key>'})
>>> print(a)
    Returned 2 result(s):
        40528 | | US | arin | 2009-06-29
        40528 | | US | arin | 2009-06-29
IPtoASNPeers: IP
    Returned 2 result(s):
        2914 3257 11164 | | US | arin | 2009-06-29
        2914 3257 11164 16876 | | US | arin | 2009-06-29

Take a look at the source for more info.

NOTE: This script makes NO ATTEMPT to rate-limit queries - it is up to YOU to ensure that your usage conforms to the various AUPs and terms of each of the providers listed below.
