    Abuse of the proxy lists

    hello, this is for the owner or owners of atproxy.net, allproxiesites.com and all other domains which are in that network. Is it just me noticing that somebody either has a lot of time on their hands, or has a automatic adding script, and is using .tk domains with redirect in order to promote the same site over and over and over again, just go at @ Proxy - Free Proxy Sites, and click on some of the .tk domains, most of them will lead to this domain
    h_ttp://abm.me/
    Isn't it possible to add captcha to the submit process, to decrease the number of such submissions, yesterday was bad, new .tk domain was added every few minutes on all the sites which run atproxy script.....

    So sad for him... all that work deleted by a single MySQL query.

    The script has a CAPTCHA feature, but we disabled it because it annoyed people. We might have to reenable it.

    Thanks for the issue report!

    Looks like you've got another spammer listing: www##. proxycom.co.cc (## = different numbers) and that's just redirecting, it's not even a proxy. It needs that database thing doing to him too.
    If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a terrible warning...

    Weird... I checked his proxies out earlier today and they seemed to work -- after you got past the AdFly ads. But when I just rechecked them they sent me AdFly, then a proxy, then a survey from which I could not escape. I deleted them all.

    I also blocked both spammers at the firewall, but you know how poorly that works against proxy people.

    Tbh I don't think the proxy people are the problem, it's the spammers and other scum bags causing the headaches. Maybe it's time to ban the subdomain listings now. If the main domain is blocked by websense etc. then subdomains become useless anyway.

    Edit: I thought the script checked what website 'answered' the url submitted anyway, could this not detect the redirected url's and just not list them? If I want a proxy myself I can put up with a few ads but if it goes to another site altogether then I close it and try a different one. I don't even bother to look at the free domains anymore.

    If the subdomain has been used, a user could normally not submit another proxy from the same domain (even though it's a different subdomain).

    Banning subdomains. That's good for honest proxy owners, but the lists are made for proxy users. They don't care if it's a main domain or sub-domain, they just want a proxy so that's why it's still there.

    @edit: waiting for Will's answer to that one.

    All Proxys
    @ Proxy Recent Proxies
    New Proxies - The Newest Proxies on the Internet!

    almost every single one .tk domain is redirecting to the abm.me site
    and i checked the entire proxy list network those domains are on every single one.
    the good news is that i believe the guy who owns abm.me will be banned from adsense
    if i was banned for no good reason what so ever, he has to be banned for cramming so many ads so close together.

    This is actually the problem I reported in this thread and for which Nux provided an elegant ammended solution here:

    Just let me add where I put the code. Place

    Code:
    if (stristr($url['host'], ".tk")) // Block the free TLD .tk
    $errors[] = 'The TLD .tk is not allowed.  Please try again';
    after

    Code:
    if (!$found)
            $errors[] = 'The category doesn\'t exist.';
        mysql_query("INSERT INTO pl_track (post, time) VALUES ('$proxy', '".time()."')") or die(mysql_error()); //track what people post
        $url = @parse_url($proxy);
    which should be around line 60 in submit-proxy.php

    and you will be fine. Also, you can cut " Please try again" if you want

    This a$$ 'ole is still doing it and getting away with it 10 days on, he's just taking the p!$$ now, ffs.

    I use I.E. (sad but true) and all I get from the links is a blank page, using Chrome and F.F I get redirected to the above domain. It must be frustrating for those genuine proxy users. The backlinks are commented out but I'm guessing the scripts still thinks they're valid.

    I think the string to block in admin/stringblacklist will be:- if(top.location.hostname != "abm.me"){ - or even maybe just: abm.me - it might slow him down ('till he thinks of a new way to spam lists).

    Is there anywhere to report this to? Would google stomp on this sort of behaviour? Would his host or isp? Short of paying him a visit and using deadly weapons I can't think of anything else.

    Here's a copy 'n paste of the page contents before re-direct (in I.E.):
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html><html dir="ltr" lang="en-US"><head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
    <title>Loading</title>
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"/>
    <script type="text/javascript"> 
    if(top.location.hostname != "abm.me"){
    if(/MSIE (\d+\.\d+);/.test(navigator.userAgent)){
    var referLink = document.createElement('a');
    referLink.href = "http://goo.gl/R6Eff";
    document.body.appendChild(referLink);
    referLink.click();
    }else{top.location.href="http://goo.gl/R6Eff";}
    }
    </script>
    </head><body>

    (I don't know why the links come out all screwy)
    Not everyone wants to block free domains, it's their choice, but there isn't many ways to stop this cr*p without imho.

    It's no fun playing 'whack-a-mole' with scumbag spammers
    If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a terrible warning...

    Thanks for that note! I am traveling and my Internet connection is not good.

    I added abm.me to the string blacklists and re-deleted the problem proxies.
