|Fixed in Version||3.2.9-RC1|
|Summary||0003893: Firefox XPS IRC Attack|
|Description||Unreal is vulnerable to the following attack:|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|3rd party modules|
Is that the same as 0003862 ?
And does the suggested module therein help against this ?
(As you can see I was happy to do something about it, but got no feedback at all. If it's the same issue, that is.)
Seems so. Thanks for the heads up.
I'll enhance my module a bit (it was just proof-of-concept) and make it more public ;)
EDIT: btw, it should be mentioned that enabling NOSPOOF protects against this attack. Well, the clients will take up unknown connections, of course...
that module seems to do the trick
I've posted it on the website / news section: http://forums.unrealircd.com/viewtopic.php?t=6458
I wasn't paying too much attention to generic IRC news for the past 6 weeks or so, and nobody informed me until now about this.. so thanks again.
ohnobinki: what do you think, I have my free module and such, I feel like it can be quite important for ircds to have...
Shall I just throw it in the unreal tree?
Another question is, should I call it like m_<whatever>, and make it included in commands.so too? That way, each ircd will run it. If I don't then many won't use it.
Feels like a good idea..
I think the module should be accepted as official (and thus shipped with unrealircd-3.2.9).
I'm not sure if it's necessary to have it compiled into commands.so. 3.2.9 will have NOSPOOF enabled by default now -- perhaps that is enough. But, yes, I don't know why an IRCd wouldn't want to have this. (it doesn't look like my uncertainty here is of any help ;-) ).
ok, let's put it in then. and yeah link it in commands.
perhaps name it m_something too so loadmodule m_*.so will include them if someone doesn't use commands.so.
still, have to think about the default settings. some users reported an annoying amount of notices regarding bots (webspiders) going to their ircd. hmmmm.
||Same here, why is this important module not in the modules database?|
||Because the modules ``database'' is un-modifiable.|
||ARGH.. same note as the other bug.|
- Add the m_nopost module written by syzop and compile it into
commands.so. This module was written to help IRCd maintainers deal
POST form submissions were able to act as dummy IRC bots. These
simple bots were the cause of much spam. (0003893)
- Add a modules section to the documentation. This was created to put
all documentation specific to the m_post module in one, easy to find
place. The documentation on m_post is likely incomplete, however.
As I wrote in the commit message, I should probably really revisit the documentation. Also, syzop, if the creation of a new documentation section makes no sense or anything, just tell me and I'll refactor that documentation so that m_post is treated as a core functionality.
I just wanted to commit this as this had been sitting in my checkout for a week or two without being touched :-/
||One of the translators told me the order (sequence) of the chapters is screwed up, could you check? *lazy*|
