VPNBlocker

Post by allejo » Thu Aug 15, 2019 3:27 am

With the unfortunate rise of VPN abuse, I was forced to write a plug-in to auto-kick players who were on VPNs. Since then, I've kept the plug-in private and have shared it with other server owners but it's now time to release it to the public and let others use it or improve on it.

Note, this plug-in does not guarantee it will be able to kick all VPNs. The plug-in is only as good as the service you're using. IPHub is currently the only service that has first-class support in the plug-in but you can query other services or build your own! Detecting VPNs is not an easy task and most of the time, it just requires a very large database of IPs; most VPNs are designed to be transparent, afterall.

This plug-in allows for a lot of customization and can be really powerful, so be sure to read the README for full details about how to configure it.

All development for this plug-in occurs on GitHub, so be sure to follow development and new releases there; I will very rarely update this post with updates on new releases. The link below will always point to the latest stable release.

Here's my personal website and my open source projects are available on GitHub; I work on a lot of cool things.

Great, hackers are on the rise and I'm sure they would love to abuse VPN's.

The newer configuration options have made it quite effective against the evolving tactics of those wishing to evade it's effects.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
