Actually you do not need to edit the blacklist.

When you download the blacklist you can specify the path to any zone file you want directly into the download URL. Add this to the download URL:


For example, if your zone file is at /etc/bind/, you can do like this:

sudo wget -O /etc/bind/ad-blacklist ';showintro=0;zonefilename=/etc/bind/'

Also.. the sample file can be downloaded directly at

Useful info for those willing to automate the blacklist update process.

Good luck. :)

Thank you.
