Hostsblock is a bash script for Linux designed to take advantage of
the HOSTS file to provide system-wide blocking of internet
advertisements, malicious domains, trackers and other undesirable
content. To do so, it downloads a configurable set of blocklists and
processes and their entries into a singular HOSTS file.
