    From This MSN new https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/tech...dinated-ransomware-attack-e2-80-99/ar-AAH1Wgt

    May I have some guide on how to block inbound network traffic from Tor Exit Nodes and outbound network traffic to Pastebin using Merlin? The list of TOR exit nodes is dynamic and changing...

    Also, it would be good to block access to and from some countries that I have no reason to visit.

    Thanks a million!

    You can start by installing a firewall script and other blocking tools. Start by inserting a USB stick into your router. Enable JFFS custom scripts and open a SSH connection to your router and install AMTM https://www.snbforums.com/threads/amtm-the-snbforum-asuswrt-merlin-terminal-menu.42415
    Once installed run the 'format disk' option, after that's done you can start by installing Skynet which is a firewall extensions that lets you block countries and other unwanted connections https://www.snbforums.com/threads/release-skynet-router-firewall-security-enhancements.16798
    Also check out the other scripts like Diversion for blocking unwanted ads. https://www.snbforums.com/threads/diversion-the-router-ad-blocker.48538

    Not much one can add to Mutzli’s reply. In Skynet you will find the facility to block countries as you mentioned.
