PeerGuardian is a firewall for users file-sharing P2P network that allows you to protect your computer from unauthorized access.

PeerGuardian is a blocker of IP addresses that integrates support for multiple lists, list editing IP addresses and block all connections TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc. After running you need to ensure that the list of blocked addresses is not obsolete.

Initially set multiple address lists with the possibility of renewal. If necessary, you can also connect other lists, which can be found at http://iblocklist.com/lists.php. As you can see, all the lists are sorted into different categories like country, companies owners. In the process, you can dynamically enable and disable as needed lists.

My personal opinion, if you are actively using p2p networks, torrents, this software I would advise to install.

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jre-phoenix/ppasudo apt updatesudo apt install pgld pglcmd pglgui[/simterm]

Remove from Linux Mint:

sudo apt purge pgld pglcmd pglgui[/simterm]

Good Luck!!!

Personally I use the standard settings, and automatic updates. Everything works fine. With the fonts I'm good. As the screenshots in the article.
