Hello there, lately I've been reading several complaints about cheaters and (D)DoS attacks against some CS2D servers. That's why I came up with the idea of developing a list of people who should not enter to your server, I've received ban lists from some popular CS2D servers.

• Rewards servers (I'm not sure if this server is still alive)
• KGB2D GTA
• KGB2D Zombie
• WQ2D

I couldn't get more lists from others servers because I simply didn't find any operator online and I was too lazy to register to their forums.

So I'm going to offer to certain people the chance to get this Lua script for your server. I can't give it to everyone because they will simply know the IP where this list is hosted and when they start (D)DoS attacks on it this project will be over. I'll upload this script to the file archive whenever someone else with more knowledge about Linux servers decides to keep hosting this black list himself, the server it is currently running is too weak.

What does the script provide?
• IP & USGN ban list
• IP Block list (This uses the Linux shell and iptables to block (D)DoS attacks from the IP database)
• Script auto-update (It receives the new script from the blacklist server)

What's the consequence with using this script?
It uses LuaSocket, and you probably wouldn't like to install that on your server. However, I can give you all the resources to get this running into this server. (With all the resources I'm talking about the LuaSocket shared object and the Lua script)

Who's going to take care of this black list?
I'm in need of moderators for this network, so I will choose them carefully since every ban created on this network will be applied to all servers running it. I will keep up a list of the people who is moderating the black list. If you want to become a moderator, say it.

How can I make sure that you just banned hackers?
When I received the bans lists from the previous servers, I made sure to only add bans marked with "hack" or "speedhack" on the reason parameter. I did not add rage-bans created by the server(s) operators.

How can I get this script?
Just send me a PM with the IP address of your server, I'll check it and decide wether it is approved to run this script. I repeat: I'm not intending to have everyone using it because anyone with bad intentions would (D)DoS attack the black list server.

Note: This won't completely stop all the hackers that exist in CS2D, but it will at least reduce the amount of hacker activity on your servers. If there isn't any server owner interested on this, I'll probably have to close/leave/forget this project.

What about using something like wget and then to read the file instead using LuaSocket? The ban database won't be large anyway.

PS: What happened to your avatar? BURN THE WITCH!

@user VADemon: That database is quite large so far, the thing is that I already coded this and it works perfectly. There's already a server running it some minutes ago. And yes! The Linux version of LuaSocket works without problems, the code is well optimized but not bug-free, I'll be upgrading it as much as I can.

Is it possible to unban them again in case someone is really not guilty?

@user saint-: It is, and we can also unblock their IP addresses from the blocked list. Every change is applied instantly to all servers.

I also had this idea in mind. Great work!
user lennon: It's not a DDoS protection, it's a blacklist against cheaters/hackers.

@user TopNotch: It kind of is from both things, it might not be able to protect from DDoS attacks but probably from simple DoS attacks. I haven't added any IP address to that list yet, I don't have any.

If anyone else is interested, I still need moderators for this project.

Nice project I can say user Starkkz. It won't really stop the cheaters and such, but it will prevent some of them. Hope you will make some improvements in it if there's any.

Also I would like to help you to moderate and handle the Black List but first I need to ask you two questions regard this.

1.When you accept a user as a Moderator for this network to handle the Black List, you'll give this script program to these moderators via PM or what?
2.When there are new hackers/cheaters banned from a specific server that's in the list, the administrator of the server will give new lists with new bans to you or both to the moderators as well?


Maybe some people would be interested in this project.

@user GeoB99:
1. Yes, I send the moderators that software via PM.
2. No, I just took those lists to make a base for these bans, I have no idea who are the internal moderators of those servers. It's up to the moderators how they want to manage the blacklist, if they'd do it through complaints and such.

@user Starkkz: Okay, thank you for the info. As far I know the database is quite large as you said, so it won't be really a big problem. But I have a question by the way:

If the database of this network BlackList reach the limit of it's size to add more banned users, the program will warn you like "The Database can't add this banned user. The Database is full!" or something like that?

@user GeoB99: I didn't set limits, it depends of the VPS.

@user Ajmin: I told you I don't really know how to solve it, I'm not used to Linux. You'd have to find out how to install the libraries that your VPS needs. The LuaSocket version I sent you was tested in other Linux devices and they worked perfectly without any problems.
