Roberto,

I have found in the stats for the countries that I have a huge amount of emails comming from an unknown country ( N/A).

Who is responsible for updating the geo IP list that you use? Is there an updated list that we could periodically download?

Cheers

StevenJohns,

The latest official, full release of SpamFilter has an updated geoip database file in it. It's maintained by Maxmind.com

The GeoIP or https://ipstack.com/" rel="nofollow - Geolocation API is a simple REST API that serves IP-to-geo mapping and reverse geocoding.
IP-to-geo mapping is the process of assigning a physical address to an IP address. Below is an example of IP-to-geo mapping.

Roberto,

Since Maxmind isn't supplying sqllite anymore as their database options.  Could SF be modified to use MySQL or MSSQL tables to supply the contries and ip assignments?  I have access to Maxmind and It's a lot easier to import the CSV files.  This way we can update the GeoIP info more often.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,

SpamFilter is only able to use the local sqlite database. We try to update it every month but you're right - we've not been very consistent (I just forced an update a few minutes ago).

If you're able to access Maxmind's CSV files however, I can provide you with the method/script we use - it's pretty straightforward. The code is for Linux shell, but it can easily be adapted:

cd ~/GeoLite2-Country
rm -R GeoLite2-Country-CSV
rm GeoLite-Country-CSV.zip
curl https://download.maxmind.com/app/geoip_download?edition_id=GeoLite2-Country-CSV\&license_key=<YOUR_KEY_HERE>\&suffix=zip -o GeoLite-Country-CSV.zip
unzip GeoLite-Country-CSV.zip
mv GeoLite2-Country-CSV_202* GeoLite2-Country-CSV
./geoip2-csv-converter -block-file=./GeoLite2-Country-CSV/GeoLite2-Country-Blocks-IPv4.csv -output-file=geoip.csv -include-integer-range
sqlite3 geoip.sqlite < geoip-import-commands.txt

The "geoip2-csv-converter" is MaxMind's own utility downloadable from https://github.com/maxmind/geoip2-csv-converter" rel="nofollow - https://github.com/maxmind/geoip2-csv-converter .

The file " https://logsat.com/pub/geoip-import-commands.txt" rel="nofollow -
