Xortify 3.10 (Production Release) Antimalformer for XOOPS!! Prevents Exploits others don't

Xortify 3.10 - Production Release

What is it?
Honeypot and Systematic Banning system that works standalone or in conjunction with protector, uses Stop form spam and Project Honeypot as well as having it own maintain ban list on xortify.com as a clouded system.

In response to the auto garbage machine in xoops not seeming to fire we have added some extra layers to the cache remover so your harddrives don't fill up with cache files as per Issue 4 raised by Sadisktico. This has now been fixed completely, so there is no excessive caching of your hard drive, xortify will clean as it goes!

Xoritfy 3.10 has some added dynamic in Antispam, Antihacking, Human rights violations and other bans. Works in conjunction with Xortify.com and Protector also holding a XOOPS and soon Drupal platform of bans.

Authors Comments!

This is hopefully the final bug fixes with some support for better performance! I can highly recommend you upgrade to this version as the ninja after the cache files needed some more work!!!! I would like to thank work Lunchalot Club for giving me some time over the weekend to double check this code for their system.

Infact I found Xortify so good you can remove captcha of your site as it will not allow any abuse of the system. I am going to hopefully at somepoint getting a copy of a spam database so I am thinking about also making a call to check content for being spam, not just emails.. But this is in the future, I have wanted to get this from Beta -> stable -> final cut -> production ready for awhile I just haven't had much time cause I find the responses I get the people that use xortify and especially on big sites swear by it.

It would be nice if other module developed looked to see if the module was installed and offer options on forums and so on for end moderators and system admins to ban people on the cloud for upto 3 months, we have special calls to other honeypots we organised so they get banned across the web for abuse!! Anyway just a thought!

Viva XOOPS!!

Re: Xortify 3.10 (Production Release) Antimalformer for XOOPS!! Prevents Exploits others don't

Great to see Xortify is developed further Simon. I installed it but now have two problems. When choosing Ban list or Sign-up I get empty pages, except for the page logo's being shown.

I see there is a new option "Enable Collection of google analytics data for xortify.com?" What exactly is collected and for what purpose? In general I don't like others collecting data without knowing why they do it and for what reason...

Simon, this remains a concern. There was no Beta and no RC to test the module, but out of the blue there is a "Production Release", and when people test it, there are issues.

Since this is not the first time, please do a regular development cycle with Beta/RC, and when you don't hear about any bugs or issues, then release a Final or "Production Release". I think, it will be a Win-Win situation for both you and the users.

We all appreciate your contribution, but improved quality process will go a long way for everybody

A miracle has happened, the errors reported before are gone. Both pages load smoothly now. I don't know what caused the problem, as I did not change any Xortify or other settings....
