You can also try to find a blacklist of hostnames to put in your /etc/hosts file.

One of these should be able do what you want.


Typically used to protect a network rather than a single machine

Apparently Ubuntu Christian Edition has Dansguardian already integrated into the system.. just fyi..

Go with

I know one of the lead developers who works at Blue Coat. Very good software and their K9 Web Protection is free.

Edit: Oops, sorry, forgot it's only for Windows or Mac. It's their enterprise products that mostly runs on Linux since the developer I know hacks on custom kernels for their products.

From their download page:

K9 Web Protection will run on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista.

Don't think I'll switch to Micro$oft just to get web protection. Sorry.
