Looking for regex to match this.

Post by SlyRipper » Sun Apr 06, 2008 12:53 pm

Hey guys, I currently have some bots started connecting to my network, Their nick follows this example 'HT12345'. Now thats easy, but some of them have a variable amount of numbers so it could be 'HT12' or 'HT1234567'. All of their idents are 'user'. I'm looking for a regex that will match this so i can spamfilter it. Thanks.

Also, if anyone could guess which bot it is that would be great, i can't guess a login command, they have no ctcp version reply and only 1 bot ever said 'HackTechIRC v2.0 Standing by...' when it joined a channel.

For the nick you could use the regex:
^HT\d+!

Which will only match nicks that start with "HT" and end with 1 or more numeric digits.

You can also use:
^HT\d+!~?user@

Which is the same as the first one except it also requires the ident portion to be either "~user" or "user"

Use both regex's with the "u" type spamfilter.

You can use Neostats to figure out the version, and then block in you unreal conf file..

You don't need NeoStats, you can use "/ctcp <nick> VERSION"
