NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade blockcheck -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade blockcheck -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

BlockCheck is a tool for detecting website access restrictions methods of russian ISPs for websites which present in EAIS

You may not know that russian government deployed widespread internet censorship in that country. Official reestry of sites that forbidden to access (EAIS) counts ~98 000 webpages by January 2018. At least ~6 500 of them are politcal, says twitter.com/@RuBlackListNET, local human rights activists organisation.

Due to active adoption of HTTPS ISPs can't guess which webpages are watched. They are forced to block entire HTTPS-powered website to comply the law. Since exact method of restricting access is not set by the law, most of ISPs not use DPI.

Deploying DPI in 2018 costs large amount of money as well as some reputation loss, not saying about any privacy problems which may occur due to nature of DPI. Most of russian ISPs block all websites on a single IP. Human rights activists counted that by January 2018 ~4 334 000 of websites blocked illegitimately due to most websites are hosted on servers which IPs is shared between multiple websites.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
