Help With MineMeld for Domain Blocking for DNS Sinkhole



I am new to MindMeld and I am seeking help with an issue: 

I wanted to configure an External Block List to use with DNS sinkhole. I need a spyware blocking of malicous sites (Like URLF) but one that will work based ib DNS only! 


I tried to use the miner on the mindmeld default config with no luck - Its seems that all of them are IP based (Not working with DNS Sinkhole). Can anyone explain how can I configure a domain basked list? 


Thanks in advanced

Hi Eliram,

all the miners in the default config are connected to feeds IP-only. You need a miner for a feed generating domain indicators. One is the AutoFocus miner, another one is ransomwaretracker.RW_DOMBL. You can connect it directly to an output node based on stdlib.feedHCWithValue, or you can attach it to a new chain stdlib.aggregatorDomain -> stdlib.feedHCWithValue.

You may want to use the chain if you plan to add new domain miners in the future.
