4kev Ongoing Incident Shark 29/11/2018 15:58:07 14267 >>14268

Hello All,

We are currently experiencing an ongoing spam attack that began this morning before 7am (server time) and continuing now at almost 4pm (server time). Fortunately the flood rate is very slow so there is not a huge torrent of posts but there is still a significant amount. The spammers are taking advantage of the 'Image URL' feature to link to their sites which is a big issue for 4kev users as the site will be connected to by your browser and the page will be downloaded before your browser sees it is not an image and cannot display it. This means when a flood of these links is posted using the 'Image URL' feature anyone who visits 4kev during the time the posts are visible will have their browser 'visit' all of these dodgy websites without their knowledge or permission. I've believe I've spoken against this feature in the past but now it really needs to be locked down. I've permabanned a few of the posts but it hasn't stopped them, they are likely just switching IPs constantly. I've been doing my best to delete the posts but the moderators need better tools to help deal with these sorts of attacks. I've been deleting posts one by one but I cannot keep this up all day. We need to take actions:

- Rethink the 'Image URL' Feature.
- Add Better Spam Detection/Prevention.
- Give mods the Tools they Need to mass Delete Spam.

Thanks.

Hello Shaps.
Thanks for your help, I was busy today and didn't notice it.
Maybe you just made it all up to make me delete that option. Well you win this time, it wasn't very popular anyway and now the website is safer.
The control panel already has a delete spam option, what other tools do you suggest? Maybe an option to delete all posts containing a string?
At the moment 4kev doesn't have any spam detection system, the post cooldown is good to slow down attacks but I don't know how to recognize potential spammers.
What content were they posting exactly? We used to get sex pills ads during the first year

I did use the 'Delete Spam' feature but I was still deleting one at a time except for one time when a bunch of the posts disappeared. Does that feature delete all posts with that IP? I think they kept switching IP, I tried to ban them like 3 times in the end deleting the thread is what stopped them. I assume it was a bot that found the thread via Google. I would suggest only allowing the homepage or maybe boards to be indexed but not individual threads. As for spam deletion tools it would be nice to be able to delete a range of posts like from 112 to 158 or whatever. The content was similar shit. They posted garbage text in the post to avoid duplicate content detection. They had 2 posts that tried different ways to represent links on a site such as <a href=""></a> and [URL][/URL] none of which work here but it shows its likely a generic script that attacks forums and stuff at random. They put their spam links in the 'Image URL' box so the link showed and you would be connected to those sites so my machine has downloaded the html from all those sites, very glad I block scripts. The sites were mostly drug related and some seemed to be hacked pages on otherwise non-spam sites. I have all the html files downloaded, I will have a look into them.

Update in regards to Ontropy.org and invite keys. Site is still coming but all invite keys I posted here have been invalidated to prevent the spambots and annoying people here from joining. If you are not Kev (I already have your email dude) and you want an invite key please follow these steps:

1. Send an email to info@ontropy.org with your 4kev username in it.
2. I will respond with a random string, post this string in this thread using your account to verify its you.
3. If you are one of the good 4kev users I will respond to the mail again with a key.

Are feminists really a big thing in America? It's hard to believe that a group of ugly stupid women can be a threat. I think the internet exaggerates the thing

Probably, but I've seen it again and again how online communities fall apart when somebody is openly female. Sure, they girls thrive of the attention, but what really ruins it are the thirsty males imo

I was thinking of adding the donation button in the homepage to get that cash flowing. It shouldn't be that hard, I just have to create a business account.
I'm just worried about hackers. Paypal is pretty secure but I don't know if someone somehow could fuck up my bank account with it

1. Nobody will donate.

2. I think the donate button is meant for non-profit organizations and I dunno how that shit works for an individual when it comes to tax and shit, legal complexity I'd personally rather avoid.

3. Increases your legal liability for other shit. Suppose you got in trouble for copyright infringement on the website at least you can say you make no money from the site and so it is not for personal gain, doesn't get you off the hook but its at least leaves you in a better position than if you're making money off the site. Granted donations are not as bad as ads in this regard but still personally I'd avoid it.

Imagine how many times a copyright is broken on 4chan every day. Yet they still show ads and sell passes. I guess they're allowed to do it as long as they let the CIA niggers patrol every thread

Donations are always tax free

Unfortunately the popup reply box doesn't work on mobiles. Even on 4chan it can't be moved.
I just use the normal reply form and link posts manually
