> The HOSTS ruleset has been not maintained for a while, and that is not very helpful. This is a copy of Energized Ultimate from April 2022 that I am still using just fine. https://www21.zippyshare.com/v/qRxZ0lp9/file.html
> The various lists that Energized project used in combination can still be referenced. https://i.imgur.com/yZRDVAl.jpg
> I think **1Hosts PRO** is a good replacement, but try Lite or Pro whichever you prefer. https://github.com/badmojr/1Hosts You may try combining other HOSTS lists with this if you want to, and are technically adept enough.
> Another good option is **AdAway**, but you might need to combine other lists with it to have competent blocking compared to Energized.
> You also need to reference, download and merge spam and phishing lists manually if you want extra protection, unless you want to rely solely on DNS providers. I prefer having both HOSTS ruleset systemwide and a DNS provider, then whatever network firewalling/tunnelling is needed.
