GeoIP 1.x no longer supported

v7

Today I received this message:

/etc/cron.weekly/geoipupdate:
Received Error -21 (Sanity check database_info string failed) when attempting to update GeoIP Database
Received Error -21 (Sanity check database_info string failed) when attempting to update GeoIP Database
Received Error -21 (Sanity check database_info string failed) when attempting to update GeoIP Database
Received Error -21 (Sanity check database_info string failed) when attempting to update GeoIP Database

I believe it’s because of this:
https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=14712 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1604029

RHEL states that this’ll be a wontfix, so CentOS also.

Which modules are using geoip? ntopng? phonehome? Which else?
Is there an alternative?

AFAIK free GeoIP DB from maxmind has changed data structure…
And licensing.
