As a person who's seen many websites being built, I knew it was only a matter of time before something happened.
Bots, DDoS, Spam, or something.
But I really didn't expect one thing, and that was the human condition.
For some reason, someone posted extremely rude comments towards ppomo.
And one person can only do so much.
So I've made this:
Just like Dva's Defense Matrix in Overwatch, it does not block anything. However it finds, and (hopefully soon will) shoots down any threats or at the very least provide an alert.
It currently process alerts for all forums with a minute delay. So at the VERY most, it will take my PDM 60 seconds to find a problem and create an email alert to a list of people (and eventually, maybe even take action automatically)
I HAVE made alerts on:
Host Server Offline (Nothing PPOMO related, the company that hosts the website got shut down for some reason)
Irregular response time (Someone is tampering with the database (SQL) or the processing code (PHP))
Irregular ping (Someone is likely DDoSing)
Website Offline (There is no response from the website)
And most importantly,
Filter threat (Someone (probably) posted something offensive or inappropriate).
These alerts wont be of much use to anyone else, but hopefully there will be some developments, maybe it'll be something that actually guards the website or maybe it'll stay limited and just do alerts, who knows.
