This likely will need a security review, unless it's used on at least one Wikimedia wiki. That being said, though the extension is tagged as unmaintained, that in and of itself is not necessarily a problem. This does seem to be a rather simple, uncomplicated, and benign extension, similar to a parser function extension. Additionally, I can see use cases on multiple wikis for local sysops to block spambots en masse, as an example.

The extension has not had any updates since 2014. Unless someone volunteers to rewrite the extension's internals, this extension won't work.

if you can install this one that would work aswell... looks like there is a latest version of it 1.35

Universal_Omega claimed this task.

Unfortunately this must be declined as unmaintained per what @Southparkfan said. If someone wishes to redo this extension they can, otherwise it must be declined.
