Re: Annyoing "security" policy

The Tor ban policy, while implemented with good intentions, unfortunately falls short of the mark. You ban inactive Tor exit points indefinitely and arbitrarily. I sometimes run a Tor exit node, but I tend to only do so in times of political upheaval around the world when the legitimate load on the...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

SteveC, as you can see, I started this thread almost a year ago without getting anywhere. Undernet staff just refuses to make up their minds for a serious discussion. They claim Tor is a threat to its network with its just 2000 nodes, which is ridiculous, considering the amount of bots on it. And ev...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

A chanop I know told me that this thread is still active and suggested I take a look at it again. If you're no longer using UnderNet as your main network or not at all, why are you even making such remarks? It's sad if you really do not understand what this means for Undernet. You may say he's just ...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

I made the decision to move my channels away from Undernet. All the years I've been on the network have been fun, but the current situation is far from acceptable. I've messaged users about the switch and told them to pass the message on to others so hopefully nobody will get lost. Furthermore, I al...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

@xplora: First off, thanks for your reply. TOR has been abused by so many people and especially these people that write viruses, and do a lot of the email spamming I've seen more bots on traditional ISP's than on Tor. Also, Tor blocks outgoing smtp connections. So ordinary DDoS attacks are not possi...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

@Eenie
Did you contact the sysops about the Tor issue and/or did they decide to ignore user questions?

For you as forum admin it should be possible to msg them to take a look at this thread.

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

TOR are made to hide your real identity One could ban everybody and whitelist IP's after a personal application. See you in 1984. bans will not be lifted From what I've seen, you're luckily not in the position to decide on such things. I share your wish. Thanks. I hope it won't take too long to get...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

undernet is not a right, its earned I never said it's a right I have; I'm very well aware (and thankful) for its service. Summing it all up, I have to point out the fact that you don't understand my point (or don't want to). While it is true that Undernet access is earned, it's not like Undernet is...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

this will never happen here I agree that a captcha solution takes quite a lot of work to set up correctly; but it would solve the drone problem very efficiently. and as alternative, get a Bouncer I'm not sure if you understand the situation correctly. You're telling me to buy a shell for a bouncer ...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

evade glines/bans What about those users without static IP addresses? Resetting a router is all they need to do to evade a ban. Want to gline all ISP's who use DHCP? its making progress to erradicate floods/abuse/evading with improvements like this one I would not call that an improvement; it's exa...

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

Eenie: Thanks for the reply. No offense, but does that mean nobody here knows why a legitimate service like Tor has been blocked? Since Undernet knows the IP's of the exit nodes, why not simply cloaking users? Like e.g. <nick>!<user>@<random>.tor.undernet.org? That way, every op can simply decide if...

Can I get a reply, or will this just be some sort of "we don't care, let's ignore him thread"?

Re: Annyoing "security" policy

I don't know if you bothered to read my posting in detail. First: I'm running Linux, your Moosoft tool is Windows only. Given that over the past 15 years I never had a virus or trojan on one of my Linux installs, I'm very positive that my system is clean. AUTO [2] (xxxxx) Infected with a virus or tr...

Annyoing "security" policy

I would like to know about the reasons for Undernets security policy, if you can call it that. I'm using IRC a lot (different networks actually) and it surprises me that Undernet decided to ban all Tor exits. I'm on Tor a lot for privacy reasons and the other networks I use have no problem with that...
