Connections tagged as TOR exit node by mistake

Postby Hardy » Sun Dec 28, 2014 12:11 pm

Some EFnet servers mistakenly tagged all incoming connections as TOR Exit node by mistake and issued a kline. The reason for this is that the blacklist provider ahbl.org have decided to shut down the service and returns positive responses for the queries our monitoring bots sends. So if you unexpectanly got tagged as TOR exit node the last days that might be a false positive.

I got tagged maybe a week or two ago. I don't run an exit.

My tor relay can also be seen as non exit when I look in tor atlas.

We REALLY should have all servers install TOR blocking. We have extreme problems today with a user who kept changing nodes to evade his ban until we had to set the channel +i, and eventually voice everyone and set to +m and just let him stay.
