[antimixedutf8] Prevent spam with similar looking characters

Post by Syzop » Sat Nov 24, 2018 1:56 pm

Just to let you all know we now have a new module that will help against spam with lookalike characters, such as:
Ꭱeaԁ wһɑt IRϹ inⅴestiɡati⋁е jⲟurnalistѕ hɑvе uncοvеrеd οᥒ tһе frᥱenoԁᥱ ⲣᥱԁophilia sⅽɑnⅾal һttps፡⁄/еncỿϲⅼoреdіaԁrаmatіca.rs/ᖴrеenഠdеgate
The module source can be found here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/unrea ... ixedutf8.c

To compile and install (should work on 4.0.18 and later, possibly older versions too):

Code: Select all

cd /home/xyz/unrealircd-4.2.0/src/modules/third
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/unrealircd/unrealircd/unreal42/src/modules/antimixedutf8.c
cd /home/xyz/unrealircd-4.2.0
make
make install
And of course, put this in your unrealircd.conf to load the module:

Code: Select all

loadmodule "third/antimixedutf8";
More settings (optional!) are available here.

In the future this module will be shipped with UnrealIRCd 4.2.1 (as an optional module), this forum post is for everyone who doesn't want to wait until then and/or want to help with testing :)
