<div bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">Pulledpork runs daily.  It's good to know that VRT didn't blacklist the server.  But the question of how it got into my blacklist remains.  Is the Amazon server in question a legitimate part of your rules delivery system? 
 If so, is it possible that the list gets altered somehow when it's handed off to Amazon?  What possible hack scenario could account for the address being added to my blacklist only?<br>
<br>
Come to think of it, this isn't the first time this has happened.  When I first implemented the reputation preprocessor, the IP addresses 23.23.143.164 and 23.23.152.48 were blacklisted, and this caused pulledpork to fail.  At that time, I added those addresses
 to my whitelist as a work around.  So, given that this happened right off the bat, it seems less likely to me that my system in particular has been hacked.<br>

I'm able to get pulledpork to run successfully by adding 23.23.165.79 to my whitelist.  But my concern is that pulledpork or my DNS has been hijacked to pull info from a server that VRT has intentionally blacklisted.  The other possibility is that the IP was
 added in error to the blacklist.<br>
<br>
Am I the only person whose blacklist contains 23.23.165.79?  If so, then I clearly have big problems.  The fact that no one else is reporting pulledpork failures indicates that this might be the case, although it could also indicate that few open source users
 are using Snort inline...<br>
