Stopforumspam dnsbl
« on: March 30, 2012, 01:54:32 pm »
I put a script on the site that will check with stopforumspam for every page request, thanks to their DNSBL. I'm hoping this will both cut down on bandwidth and spambot registrations.

An example of a bad request: http://omnimaga.org/?testblock&ip=109.230.251.45

The requests are cached on my DNS server after the first request, so user impact should be minimal at worst.

Here's the script I'm using:

Code: [Select]
<?PHP
session_name("dnsbl");
session_start();
$publicKey = "<Recaptcha public key>";
$privateKey = "<Recaptcha private key>";
$whitelist = array();
$checkIP = (isset($_GET['ip']) && isset($_GET['testblock'])?$_GET['ip']:$_SERVER['REMOTE_HOST']);
$ip = explode(".",$checkIP);
$dnsRequest = "$ip[3].$ip[2].$ip[1].$ip[0].dnsbl.tornevall.org";
$requestResult = gethostbyname($dnsRequest);
$isBlocked = ($requestResult!=$dnsRequest);

if (isset($_GET['captcha']))
{
$array_postvars = array();
$array_postvars[] = 'privatekey=' . $privateKey;
$array_postvars[] = 'remoteip=' . $_SERVER['REMOTE_HOST'];
$array_postvars[] = 'challenge=' . $_POST['recaptcha_challenge_field'];
$array_postvars[] = 'response=' . $_POST['recaptcha_response_field'];

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, implode('&', $array_postvars));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/verify");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

$result = curl_exec($ch);
$error = curl_error($ch);
unset($_SESSION['recaptcha']);
if ($result == "true\nsuccess")
$_SESSION['recaptcha'] = true;

header("location: index.php");
}

if (($isBlocked || isset($_GET['testblock'])) && !in_array($checkIP,$whitelist) && !isset($_SESSION['recaptcha']))
{
header('HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden');
$file = file_get_contents("blocked_hosts.txt");
$file .= "\n[" . date("r") . "] Blocked: $checkIP " . ($isBlocked?"Block":"Test");
file_put_contents("blocked_hosts.txt",$file);
$errorCode = explode(".",$requestResult);
$errorCode = intval($errorCode[3]);
echo "<html>
<head>
<title>Blocked</title>
</head>

         value="manual_challenge">
  </noscript>
</form>
</body></html>';
die();
}
if (isset($_GET['clearSession']))
{
session_destroy();
}
?>

If anyone has any issues with this, please let me know.

The e-mail code was generated by this (Thanks Juju)
The DNSBL is provided by dnsbl.tornevall.org, and is based off of stopforumspam's blocklist.

If you want to use the script, just put

Code: [Select]
<?PHP include("dnsbl.php") ?>

at the top of whatever script you wish to protect.

Edit: Added recaptcha support to it.

Great! :D

You might want to hide your email with this though, in case.

I'm putting my faith into gmail's spam filter, heh.

Also, updated the script in the first post (I added logging).

Yeah, I agree, Gmail's spam filter is kinda great. At least, it does a good job for me.

Yea. I put the captcha on it, though. Updated the first post too.

Sweet, hopefully it helps. I've noticed there are a ton more spambots then usual these days.

EDIT: I think it broke the ajax though for loading quick reply, quotes etc.

I was accidentally returning 403 Forbidden for all requests, not just those that are blocked. AJAX is reliant on the correct codes being returned.

I'll wipe it before it does. :P


I just updated the script in the first post to have more in-depth error responses, and I updated the test link to a link that'll use them.

What will happen when Stopforumspam server is down? Will this cause Omnimaga to be down for everyone in the process? That's my main worry about this script. Could you make it so when the SFS server is down, that anyone can access Omni fine? We might still get a few bots, but at least it would not be as bad.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

If their server is down then the dns check will fail, and they'll be allowed to access the site.
