waterproof paint

My basement cinderblock has regular latex paint on the walls.  I want to repaint using a waterproofing paint.  What paint would be effective?
Thanks

 Trix,

Unfortunately, the usual basement waterproofing paints will only work when placed directly over bare concrete.

Have you had problems with water seepage in the past?  If not, any conventional quality interior latex/acrylic house paint will hold fine on sound cinder block. If the voids in the cinder block are not filled, you might consider a heavy bodied "block filler" paint. It  would aid in filling those small voids.
