IP Blacklist feed has moved locations!

For those of you using the IP Blacklist feed on labs.snort.org, or even the old link on talosintel.com, we've had to move the URL to the new link.

You can find it at the following URL: http://talosintel.com/feeds/ip-filter.blf

I've went ahead and updated the pulledpork.conf that is currently in Github, so a fresh download of pulledpork (probably a good thing!) will help you.

Check it out!
