GeoIP database from MaxMind
MaxMind provides a free version of their Geo-localization database, useable from Perl.
Which is pretty cool.
I’ve hit slightly less than 1.2 k banned IPs in a Fail2ban instance and I was curious about it, so I needed to translate a list of IP addresses into country names.
Luckily, IP::Geolocation::MMDB and a free DB by MaxMind made the translation possible and fun.
This is what came out:
China 254 United States 218 Hong Kong 93 Singapore 72 India 70 Germany 53 Netherlands 36 Indonesia 31 Brazil 30 United Kingdom 28 South Korea 28 Russia 27 Vietnam 24 Canada 14 Japan 13 France 12 Thailand 11 Italy 11 ...
I was expecting China first, less so the other ones. How beautiful is that we can challenge our own self-delusions and biases with data?
