The categories file provides a mapping between a category number, short name and long description. It's a simple CSV file:
1,BadHosts,Known bad hosts 2,Google,Known google host
The maximum value for the category id is hard coded at 60 currently.
The reputation file lists a reputation score for hosts in the categories. It's a simple CSV file:
The IP is an IPv4 address in the quad-dotted notation. The category is the number as defined in the categories file and the value is a number between 1 and 127. 0 means no data.
If an IP address has a score in multiple categories it should be listed in the file multiple times.
This lists 126.96.36.199 in categories 1 and 2, each with a score of 10.
