Black Listing

Blacklisting is a form of Filtering. Think of it like a casino that won’t allow card counters. They’ve been blacklisted. Similarly a firewall or antivirus can block or blacklist types of files, websites and content from entering your network or computer.

This is different from whitelisting, which effectively blocks all types of files, websites and content from entering your network or computer unless they are specifically allowed to.
