Well, since 3.2.2 (so since October 2004) we have the spamfilter 'u' target, so if you got these things, just do something like:

Code: Select all

/spamfilter add u kill - Please_use_another_nickname ^Guest[0-9]{6}!.+

wth? Annoying guest quoter.

Shouldnt it be a block? Do these trigger on nick changes? If they do, what about services SVSNICKing me to Guest123456 when I fail to ident. Should I be killed for that?
Why the hell can't my signature be empty?

type of Guestxxxxx bots.


i'm not sure anymore if its only a floodbot or it was spambot. At least its a bot for harming networks/ channels.

looks like the owner/ user isn'T expierenced with bots, otherwise he would had changed the based nickname. so its probably the original script.

Preventing:

- check the ips of the bots ( proxy or dyn ip)
-- if proxy u have to deal with floodbots, if dyn ip u have to deal prolly with a GTbot type.

- if proxy use opsb to trigger gline them auto

- if dyn ip find similiar indicators in nickname/ ident/ realname , check on spam they are doing and use spamfilter for glining them
