SMBX.org's bot problems

PostPosted by Pseudo-dino » Sun May 31, 2015 1:57 pm

OK, so earlier this morning, a bunch of spambots were taking over the stardust fields IRC channels.

I was the only staff member around on SMBX.org, so I kicked them and such and changed the mode to +i, which cause some confusion.

About 5 minutes ago at the time of this post, I at least became unable to connect to SMBX.org or irc.stardustfields.net at all. It appears that they have been DDoSed by the spambot group. This seemed to happen immediately after zlakergirl357 and sleepy clued me in to the leaders of the spambot group and I got rid of them. I doubt this is a coincidence.

I apologize if this is somehow my fault. I was only trying to stop the spambots... I don't know too much about IRC syntax, so I apologize for being somewhat ineffective. Special thanks to Sinem for helping me out back there.

Since SMBX.org and irc.stardustfields.net are down now I just wanted to explain the downtime somewhere where people would see it. I'm also posting this message on Privana.

We're not certain who is behind the spambots or anything, I'm afraid.
Love and Tolerance FTW!!

I swear, these spambots or anything are just wasting their time and that's also their fault to cause such troubles like this.

Right now we can't enter the server of course just for that. Thanks, spambots. Thank you for ruining my new night-time.

Now we can only wait.

So this (probably?) has happened again, as I'm unable to visit SMBX.org right now.

That explains it.

At least it wasn't a shutdown from Nintendo...

This is most strong attack which I saw on SMBX.org <:P>

Therefore I have a backup channel on the freenode server: #smbxorg channel. Freenode is safe place without stupid spam bots.
Who was operator in original #smbx, I will set operator flag on freenode. Note: to have operator need to register on freenode server.

How to register on freenode:
1) enter this message/command in the chat window:
Code: Select all
/msg NickServ REGISTER ThePassWord youremail@example.org

ThePassWord is where you would enter your private password, which will be used for IRC authentication.
youremail@example.org is where you will enter your email address, and is necessary for activating your IRC account.

2) Upon registering, you will receive an email with a verification command that you will need to run to complete the registration process.

3) Re-connect to the IRC Freenode Server with your password. (If you're a moderator, you could be set as a room operator)


P.S. webchat here: http://webchat.freenode.net?channels=%2 ... ExPTIzNg6b

Or we could just use a channel that exists on Esper since most of us are registered there. #teatime is still up. #privana is also welcome.

Thanks for your support, Sinem and others. Yes, it appears that the forums are still down. I don't think they've been up at all since I made the first post here.
