Icedream's Anti-VPN bot
This bot automatically sets bans when it detects clients with specific patterns known from bots that evade bans and (probably) log channels.
The pattern is roughly as follows:
- Nickname, Ident and Real name are the same (Ident shortened down to first 9 characters)
- Client joins a very high amount of channels.
- Client is not identified.
- Client generates nicknames from a preset of words and random numbers.
- Client connects from various IP addresses (botnet)
- It optionally quits very soon with an "Excess Flood" message due to it spamming channel joins.
How to install this
go get -v github.com/icedream/vpnbot
Make sure your GOPATH is set properly and that you have PATH also pointing at your GOPATH binary folder.
How to run this
Docker allows an easy, isolated setup of vpnbot.
- Make sure you have Docker installed properly on your system.
- If you haven't yet, generate a configuration with this command:
docker run --rm -v /path/to/your/data:/data icedream/vpnbot vpnbot -generate
- Edit the resulting
config.ymlto your needs, you'll probably need root permissions for this.
- Start up a container with Docker like this:
docker run --rm -d -v /path/to/your/data:/data icedream/vpnbot
- Check if the bot started up correctly using
docker logs <printed container ID here>.
Alternatively, after step 3 you can use
docker-compose with a YAML configuration like this:
bot: image: icedream/vpnbot volumes: - "./data:/data"
First, generate a default configuration in a new folder:
mkdir vpnbot cd vpnbot vpnbot -generate
This will generate
config.yml - the file path can be changed by appending
-config "<your own path here>". Edit this file to your needs, then rerun the bot without -generate.
Again, optionally add
-config "<your own path here>" if you use your own path to the configuration file.
