Hostdeny.txt

Post by Abraxis »

Hey,

One of the things I would like to see here is a place to upload/download files. As for hostdeny.txt, if your systems are being plagued with script kiddies like mine, perhaps you might like to share your hostdeny.txt files somewhere. I have a fairly large one to share if there was a place for it.

I will look at making somewhere available, in the meantime you could compress it and post it in the Sysop forum on Worldlink.

Would you mind sending me your hostdeny.txt? I'm getting a lot of spam/hacker contacts I'd like to block but they always seem to come from different ip's. Having a good starting file would help a lot.

Sure, but I can’t do it here, unless I post the raw text.

I had created a whitelist option allowing only on the list but for a bbs that pretty much was pointless.
if you or anyone knows and certain keystroke commands they are using I can monitor the input buffer
and detect it and auto kick them then add it to the list.
