New Security Measures

Hello guys! As I'm sure you've noticed, we have quite a few spammers trying to get on the site, and I think that should be taken care of now! They never could really post, but they could register. I added multiple levels of security last night and I think that it should take care of them.

  • New forum firewall. This firewall has deeper proxy checking that will get a users true IP address and display it to the staff. This offers real IP bans in order to prevent a lot of problems. Also in this firewall is protection from multiple hacks, including the most popular SQL injection and XSS attacks. This firewall also protects against denial of service attacks by limiting the number of page loads per second an IP can load.
  • New anti-spam software. This software, at registration, compares the user's username, email address and IP address to an automatically updating database of spammers. This database is updated multiple times a day to ensure that no spammers get through. In the case that TQC cannot connect to the spam database, a user will be allowed on the website, but will be flagged for administrator approval.
This software is powerful stuff and should solve our issues! Any problems, let me know!

Thanks guys! The main thing left is chat... which is giving a lot of issues. The current one isn't bad, but certainly not good. I don't wanna replace it with a crappier one, lol.

The current one double posts a lot and really hogs some resources, and also gives some people a lot of popup messages. I think I'm just gonna modify it though.
