A new proxy/VPN ban project, ASkidban

pisto is working on a new project called ASkidban, whose goal is to compile a large list of hosting providers with the assumption that they are the places where VPN and proxies are located.

The project comprises a set of tools to review information on internet organizations, and an actual database which already counts about 200 blocked organizations and about 27 million blocked IPs. For more information on the tools and the criteria used in compiling the ban list, please read the project README.

The ban list is work in progress, so use at your own risk. It is wired to pisto’s servers: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK! (pisto.horse 6666) and pisto.horse 1024. piernov added support for suckerserv, but it is not yet tested, and there are most likely performance problems due to the size of the list.

If you want to contribute, you can drop an email to pisto or send a pull request on the GitHub repo. Feedback on the current ban list and reports of proxies/VPNs are especially welcome.

    good project, in particular for public servers which are being riddled by reappearing cheaters.
    for the more competitive scene, an actual anti-cheat client that can detect nasty trigger bot users would be nice.

      I won’t publish an always-on anticheat as I did with swlacc.
      I have plans for server-side anticheat, but it’s a large chunk of work.

        This interests me pisto as commercial versions are too pricey.
        Does this mean the client will be reduced to thin-client?

    I really wonder who would downvote this. You can disagree with the method but then you would also comment. My guess is that it’s one of the handful of cyberghostvpn.com users that were slammed trying to join my servers.

    I disagree with the method. People keep spamming me ingame with information from my privacy related to sex orientation and ethnical origin deducted from my internet navigation.

        That kind of comments. Exactly. And from then, they know exactly what I am doing like what I am listening on youtube while playing. Bye bye sauerbraten.

        Nice Necrobump you fuckwit. Make sure you don’t come back.

        Oh and who were you again that we might care? NOT!

    Been using ExpressVpn for a couple of years without any problems aside from occasional slow connection speed. However, for the past few months, I was not able to connect to it on any of my iOS devices without turning them off first. And I would have do this every time I need to use Expressvpn and this means numerous times a day. I contacted Expressvpn support and was told this is an iOS issue, nothing to do with them. I wonder does anyone else had this issue. Also, I just signed up Vyprvpn’s 3 day trial but discovered that I can’t contact live chat without vpn being on. That’s useless to me when my vpn is down and can’t contact support for immediate solution.
