    eMule update sources (dat, dll, csv, servers, nodes)

    eMule 0.50a is an old program, let us look at the environment updates and configurations

    addresses.dat
    nodes.dat
    server.met
    staticservers.dat

    source:
    https://github.com/irwir/eMule/releases
    pick latest release (for example 0.60d) extract files from list above to config folder
    third party:
    https://upd.emule-security.org/nodes.dat

    ip-to-country.csv

    source:
    https://github.com/emulefanscom/ip2c
    pick World Country-level ip2c English (copy to config folder)
    url]https://emule-security.org/[/url]
    https://upd.emule-security.org/ip-to-country.csv.zip

    ipfilter.dat

    source:
    https://www.iblocklist.com/list.php?%20list=bt_level1
    https://emule-security.org/
    https://upd.emule-security.org/ipfilter.zip

    UnRAR.dll

    source:
    https://www.rarlab.com/rar_add.htm

    MediaInfo.dll (32bit)

    source
    https://github.com/MediaArea/MediaInfoLib/releases
    https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download/Windows
    according to https://github.com/irwir/eMule/releases not all new versions may be supported?

    addresses.dat and staticservers.dat contain transient and customized data respectively (see https://www.sb-innovation.de/showthread.php?t=7284), so they probably shouldn't be overwritten. For server.met, https://www.sb-innovation.de/showthread.php?t=16382 receives an updated list whenever I need to use eMule for something Every entry in it is manually verified by me. nodes.dat gets stale fairly quickly, but refreshes itself through regular usage, so manual updates aren't necessary unless you're one of those who don't use servers at all (in which case eMule Security updates their node list once a day).

    I only found it around two months ago! eMule Security updated it once a month, but stopped on April 2021. This one at least made it to November... then again, there aren't many changes in the IPv4 address space these days.

    ipfilter.dat
    eMule Security provides monthly updates; theirs is basically the level 1 list plus some extras, which in turn I use as a baseline for further additions of my own.

    > UnRAR.dll

    > MediaInfo.dll (32bit)
    I have never used these, so no comment.

    I'm not aware of any serious vulnerabilities in eMule, but the usual principles always apply. Run as an unprivileged user and use GflagsX to enable additional mitigations (but only if you know what you're doing, they aren't candies!).

    addresses.dat
    nodes.dat
    server.met
    staticservers.dat

    With servers I trust no one but the current maintainer/ mainline community.

    Maybe we can trust, however safest bet is extraction from main
