Projects / Open Proxy Scanning Bot

Open Proxy Scanning Bot

open proxy scanning bot (formerly NeoBOPM) is a loadable module for the NeoStats IRC Services. It scans clients connecting to the IRC network for insecure proxies, and also looks up a DNS blacklist for previously registered insecure proxies. It caches the results of scans to increase perfomance, and with multiple bots, can be configured for load balancing. It currently supports Hybrid7, Unrealircd, LiquidIRCd, Bahamut, QuantumIRCd, MysticIRCd, NeoIRCd, and Ultimate, with support for other ircds planned.

            Release Notes: This release adds a SET interface to control OPSB's nickname, etc., an option to make OPSB less verbose, compile fixes for older BSDs, fixes to the exceptions list being case-sensitive, and the ability to take advantage of IRCds that provide the users' IP address instead of performing DNS lookups for every connection. It fixes a problem with OPSB being configured with DISABLESCAN and the scan queue growing out of control.
