Plugin Description:

Referrer Blocker is a plugin that inspects the referrer of a website visitor, and checks it against a list of referrers that are known to be spammy and/or malicious, it will return a 404 not found error if the client's referrer matches any in the list.

The list of referrers is initally empty, but you can fetch a good list by clicking the "Fetch List" button in the top right of the plugins setting page, this list is fetched from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/piwik/referrer-spam-blacklist/master/spammers.txt

All credit for the list goes towards their contributors.
