MT-Blacklist Emergency Upgrade

I get home to find - buried between over 350 spam mails - a mail stating there has been an emergency bug fix of Jay Allen's MT-Blacklist. It seems there has been quite a serious bug in the last versions, which results in MT-Blacklist not being able to decode encoded URL's.

Jay's warning about upgrading to the new version NOW is not a second too early, because after I upgraded the MT-Blacklist 1.64 I already found 11 spam comments on my blog, all posted today! It seems the spammers keep a very close watch on people that maintain tools to get rid of their crap.

Here's the list of IP's I've banned as a result of todays spam run :

64.88.86.3
64.2.234.227
62.85.203.19
62.84.154.157
212.88.95.217
212.199.28.197
212.199.169.153
212.191.172.7
203.121.139.20
200.76.237.26
200.204.177.240
200.165.143.240
200.161.129.39

Feel free to use the information as you like, either add them to your blog's ban list too, or just discard the IP's given.
