Stop Proxy Servers
Posted 06 July 2006 - 05:36 PM
Is there anything I can do to stop them from using these sites. Is there a list of proxy server IP's I could just block?
What does everyone else do?
If you IP Banned someone they could just go to one of these sites and they are back in.

Plus the user can just go to another location and get back in...... you maybe able to Ban by Mac ID on the network card. but this will lock that card out.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community

I'm not sure what your website does or how far people will go to create a new account, but here are a couple of things you could implement:
Log the IP address: You might as well, now with broadband and static IP addresses being more common, this is still a good start.
Require email verification / account activation: A lot of people only try to break / crack things because the oportunity is there. If you make a couple of extra hoops that they have to jump through to get it, some will just not bother... like me
Random character validation: You know the thing where is shows you 6 or so random characters so that you have to enter it in to stop people using programs that will automatically fill in forms etc... again, just another hoop.
