Alle Jahre Wieder

Und wieder mal haben es Kommentar-Spammer geschafft, mich so weit zu nerven, dass ich die Kommentar-Funktion des Blogs deaktivieren musste – wieder mal :-(.

Daran wird sich vermutlich auch so schnell nichts mehr ändern: einerseits wird die Kommentarfunktion so gut wie nicht genutzt, und andererseits hilft IMHO technisch nur eine komplette Neuprogrammierung gegen den Spam – die Comment-API von Django bietet einfach keine vernünftigen Schutzmechanismen gegen Viagra-Postings.

Trouble with Spam

Posted by Jesco Freund at Sept. 19, 2010 10:05 a.m.

During the last few days, I had – once again – trouble caused by massive comment spamming. Since it was the only way to keep the spammers from submitting up to 300 spam comments per article and day, I had to temporarily take some blog posts offline.

For the time being, I've got a technical solution, so the concerned blog posts are online again – hopefully, this will work for a while…

Inconvenience No. 2

Posted by Jesco Freund at Nov. 12, 2009 8:17 p.m.

Comment spam has not yet ebbed away. Despite the tightened countermeasures, I still get loads of spam comments – obviously, Serendipity has an understanding of the term “reject” which strikingly differs from mine… In other words: all the spam isn't published, but I still have to delete the whole rubbish manually. This is a stupid, harassing activity stealing my precious leisure time. Consequently, I decided to finish the problem off by completely deactivating the commenting function.

Sorry for the inconvenience…

Posted by Jesco Freund at Nov. 6, 2009 5:10 p.m.

For the last few weeks, I've been having massive trouble with comment and trackback spam, so I decided to set some tougher spam protection mechanisms into operation. In addition to the captcha mechanism (in use since I started this blog), a valid email address is now required. This address won't be displayed anywhere, but it is used to send you a verification email with a link to activate your comment. You only have to go through this once, afterwards your email address is known to be trustworthy and your comments will be accepted immediately. Furthermore, all comments are submitted to the Akismet API for spam checking.

OpenMCP Policy Daemon Release Candidate 0.1-rc1

Posted by Jesco Freund at May 18, 2008 11:36 p.m.

Nach einer Code Rally über die letzten drei Tage ist die erste lauffähige Version des OpenMCP Policy Daemons fertiggestellt. Der Policy Daemon verarbeitet ähnlich wie z. B. policyd-weight Angaben aus dem Mail-Header. Anders als policyd nutzt er diese aber nicht zu einem DNSBL- sondern einem Black-/White List Abgleich. Damit ergänzen sich beide Daemons optimal und stellen eine mächtige Waffe im Kampf gegen Spam dar.


Da für das Projekt noch keine eigene Seite existiert, bitte Fragen/Wünsche/Bugreports vorerst hier als Kommentare posten – dann sind sie mitsamt Antworten für alle Interessierten verfügbar.
