Version 6 (modified by wmark, 8 years ago) (diff)

OSSDL RBL (specialized on Trac-spammers)

RBL support for Trac < 0.10

Description

This patch implements real-time spam black lists (RBL) support for early releases of Trac, which do not have the SpamPlugin support.

It is written for Trac 0.9.6 but should apply to the 0.9 series seamlessly.
In case you do not use mod_python you will have to modify your controller very similiarly to modpython_frontend.py. Controllers are stored in trac/web.

Any user who did not log in (thus anonymous) and whose IP is on the given RBL will have his rights to modify anything revoked.

Source

You can check out TracRblPatch from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.

Example

It is inactive as long as you don't provide any RBLs in conf/trac.ini:

[trac]
rbl = rbl.ossdlde.,sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org,cbl.abuseat.org
rbl_whitelist = 127.0.0.1

Tests

You can check out whether your RBLs are working correctly by the wiki-macro IsIPBlacklisted.py.

For selecting RBLs I recommend http://www.robtex.com/rbls/.
