[MOD] Bad Domain Mail Checker
« on: July 10, 2009, 01:16:52 PM »
I found out that many spam bots are registering on my site with domain such as mail.ru, nlist.ru etc.

So I decided to disable new registration from those domains and here is small mod that will do that:

1. Add new row in 4images_settings table:
Code: [Select]
ALTER TABLE 4images_settings
ADD bad_mail

2. Open /includes/functions.php and before
Code: [Select]
?>

add

Code: [Select]
function mailCheck($user_email) {
global $site_db, $config;
$user_email = strtolower($user_email);
$return = 'true';
if ($config['bad_mail'] > '') {
$BadMailList = explode("\r\n", $config['bad_mail']);
$j = count($BadMailList);
for ($i = 0;$i < $j;++$i) {
if (eregi($BadMailList[$i], $user_email)) $return = 'false';
}
}
return $return;
}

3. Open register.php and before
Code: [Select]
if ($user_password == "") {
add

Code: [Select]
   if (mailCheck($user_email) == "false") {
      $msg .= (($msg != "") ? "<br />" : "").$lang['invalid_email_format'];
      $error = 1;
    }

4. Open admin/settings.php and after:
Code: [Select]
show_setting_row("highlight_admin", "radio");
add
Code: [Select]
show_setting_row("bad_mail", "textarea");
Now you can in admin settings add bad domain names that you want to banned from registration; one after another.

Example:
aravensoft.com
bk.ru
list.ru
mail.ru
mysite.com
ya.ru
yoursite.com

You are welcome to test this mod first and add you suggestion how to improve it.

Enjoy!

Glad that you like it.

Can you confirm if it's working correct?

Hi,

it's working fine for me.

The only thing I found is you forgot the language entry:

Open /lang/your_language/admin.php and find:
Code: [Select]
?>BEFORE add:
Code: [Select]
$setting['bad_mail'] = "Zu blockierende Mail Hosts eingeben:";
If you don't add this there is a empty textfield at admin settings only.

Just a correction to make it looking better ;-)

And I made a list with the most famous trashmail pages:

Code: [Select]
trash-mail.com
trash-mail.de
spambog.com
spambog.de
discardmail.com
discardmail.de
spambog.ru
cust.in
imails.info
great-host.in
teewars.org
kulturbetrieb.info
bio-muesli.net
bio-muesli.info
0815.ru
sandelf.de
recode.me
3d-painting.com
nomail2me.com
sofort-mail.de
dodgit.com
mailinator.com
jetable.org
spam.la
mt2009.com
trash2009.com
trashymail.com
mytrashmail.com
e4ward.com
kasmail.com
iximail.com
kas-group.com
spamgourmet.com
eintagsmail.de
hidemail.de

denying email adresses based on domain name is a bad practice...
Your first three "must do" before you ask a question:
If I asked you to PM me, I meant PM to my primary account, this account doesn't accept PMs.
