Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Block pesky ads, malware-spreading domains, porn sites and more with WebLocker« on: February 28, 2017, 04:46 AM »
So, the tool is basically a DNS switcher? Or switcher + null-routing with hosts file?
How does it prevent DNS leaks and tracks? Switching to a DNS server that claims doing this is not the same as actually preventing it.
The feature list seems a bit like false advertisement, if it's just a blocklist. While null-routing known malware hosts does prevent getting malware from those domains, that really doesn't qualify a product as "anti-malware".
How come it's hosted on sourceforge if the source is not available?
Also, a couple of things regarding DnsCrypt:
1) it doesn't encrypt DNS traffic, it cryptographically verifies that the replies haven't been tampered with.
2) using a DNS server that's listed as "supporting DnsCrypt" is meaningless, you don't gain anything unless you're running the DnsCrypt client yourself.-f0dder (February 27, 2017, 02:50 AM)
thank you so much for your helpful comment.
Yea, that's true switching DNS to a trusted DNS doesn't mean preventing DNS Leaking, that's why I'll make a new version will be 2.2.0, that will be DNScrypt supported.
I just notice that I was writing Malware blocker in Features, but in the description, I'm writing: Block domains known to spread malware.
I edited the features and I make it correct now, I'm sorry for that and thank you so much again.
Note: I'm a 20 years guy and, I will be so glad to hear your advices or anything that can improve the software.
