ZB Block blocks Softlayer/ThePlanet/Everyone/Reach (ASN-SLTP-054) and Hurricane Electric (ASN-HE1-029)

Seems like someone has added 172.255.0.0/16 to the ZB Block list. Pesky. Sloppy.

See the file signatures_install.inc from ZB Block 0.4.10a3 2013-04-28 “Tomcat” update 72.
To wit:

$ax += cidrblock($address,"173.255.240.0/20","Softlayer/ThePlanet/Everyone/Reach. (ASN-SLTP-054). "); //71
$ax += cidrblock($address,"173.255.240.0/20","Hurricane Electric (ASN-HE1-029). "); //73b

Basics

ZB Block of Spambot Security
ZB Block is a freeware php driven website/forum/blog/CMS anti spam and hacking script.

“ZB” seems to be the adoption of Douglas Adams’ character Zaphod Beeblebrox as the preferred nick name of the main autho.
