• Added RBL lookups on connection via DroneDL.

    Why 'NXDOMAIN' as a magic string to return and check for? `resove_ip()` returns `null` on failure to resolve, so just check for a non-truth result of `checkip()` and return the return value of `resolve_ip()` here.

    So here (and later) `checkip()` is returning `false`, but the code that checks the return value of `checkip()` only checks for 'NXDOMAIN' and `undefined` as handles those as expected return values.

    hard-coding the DNSBL server? Icky.

    Because I suck and I did what works for me just so we can get it working and stop the bots.

    I thought I changed these to just return; rather than return false;. I'll have to check.

    It was either that or wait a week while I figure out how to add it to the ircd config. Sorry I bothered, I'm sure.

    You'd want to return a value in all cases, not just `return;`

    But make sure you're actually checking-for/handling the possible return values in the caller.

    or just use `function checkip(ip, rbl)` and then pass the hard-coded (for now) DNSBL server at the call site. Then in the future, when someone adds the configurability, this function would still need no change.

    Yup.

    Those dipshits do that stuff around every holiday.

    Really, the best thing to stop like 99% of that stuff is to run your ircd on a non standard port. i dropped 6667 and only use ssl now and i don't get any attacks.

    I was surprised they didn't even find me on april floods day.
    Last year i stopped a lot of their attacks just by banning strings in their script, but i see now they are masking it.

    Right now, They are attacking my channels on efnet. most activity it's seen all year.
