pfBlocker relies on Team Cymru IP to ASN Lookup v1.0 to get the list of prefixes for the defined ASN. But it seems that it is not working anymore.

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Navigate to Firewall/pfBlockerNG/IP/IPv4 
2.) Define *IPv4 Source Definitions* choosing *ASN* format and define Facebook ASN (AS32934). (It can hang and make trouble defining ASN. See for more details. 
3.) On the same page, under the *Settings* section, choose *Alias Native* in the *Action* drop-down list.
4.) Save the settings on the bottom of the page.
5.) Go to Firewall/pfBlockerNG/Update and run the update. 
6.) At this stage, the firewall will have a new Alias from the Source Definition made in step 2.) but if you check it under Diagnostics/Tables, you'll notice that it's empty.
