Hey there Devvers! Long time, no see! I have been on vacation for the past while and thought I would return with my first open sourced project, Sli... [Read Full]

The automation tool must be compatible and can provide you not only with anonymity, but also with security since it has a feature called Anytime IP Refresh. With this advanced feature, your IP address can be changed anytime, either by demand or on a pre-set schedule.

 

Great! Yet another tool to train my IP blacklisting app with app with. Machine learning model against spam generator... Perfect!

 

Spam generator, pen testing tool, toolset for developing the data aggregators that run most of the web. Who really knows these days? 😜😜

Either way, I'm glad this has gotten the attention of somebody developing a counter to it (because I'm building one of those too 😁😁). The only way to make our tools better is through the friendly competition these types of things inspire toward each other!

Specifically in my corner, Slither is open source so that it can be made better by other automation and security experts. Our "keep bots out" system Sentinel, is a freemium service that helps me analyze how folks are defeating filters (whether they use Slither or not) so we can better keep them out.

Maybe we can compare notes sometime? I'd love to see a like-minded person's approach to this. I'm always up for learning something new. Anybody who knows me can attest that being wrong is one of my favorite places to be because that means I get to learn from the person who is right. Thanks so much for commenting and I would love to see your blacklisting model in action when it's up and running and pit Slither against it!
