An old missing link in TorExits
The “Tor Exit Node scanner” has been down for a while due to the long unconvenient upgrade made. It is however re-instated with a small bonus: From now on, the ExitNode-scanner will be self-sanitized and hosts discovered as exit nodes will automatically get removed as soon as the official ExitNode-list (https://check.torproject.org/exit-addresses) is updated.
Removal tool is back online
Our removal tools that works agains DNSBL v5.0 is finally released. It’s up and it has been tested both with ipv4 and ipv6-connections, so now we’re ready to release it in public too.
And if you still need manual support, you may want to take a look at http://docs.tornevall.net/x/OIBu as usual.
DNSBL with FraudBL
dnsbl.tornevall.org v5.0.0 has just been released so we are now fully synched with FraudBL. The docs regarding the API has been updated, which you can read here: http://docs.tornevall.net/x/EYBu.
There is an ongoing project with TorneLIB which has a standalone project for handling our API. It’s not ready for release, but you can review the upcoming script at the dev-site here!
If you recently contacted us about removal and you seem to be relisted, the release of version 5 may be the cause, and the fact that some hosts has not been properly updated in both our databases.
DNSBL with FraudBL update
The project tracker has been rebuilt, so now there’s an overview on what’s going on with the project. You can see it here or at the documentation site here.
FraudBL status update.
FraudBL is currently up and running and while we are typing this post, we are collecting spam from ”phishing sites”. As we are counting, approximately 1200 hosts are flagged ”phishing” in our database. In short, this database will get a zone update so we can start using it. What we are actually waiting for is dnsbl.tornevall.org and the last migration steps.
Tornevall Networks primary link down
Our primary network link went down yesterday. It has been reported, but it seems like it will take a little bit longer to fix this time. However, we’re not completely down, since we switched over to our backup route while we are waiting.
Work in progress
We have’nt updated for a while, so it may be time for that now. The work is in progress but due to lack of time in private, it has taken longer than expected. But we’re still here, still taking DNSBL requests by email@example.com (with a SLA based on quick response time). Our SSL certificates are getting updated and currently, we’re on A-level (referring to sslabs tests). The new platform is still only available offline, but since this text is written with the help of that platform, there is some kind of confirmation of the progress,
In the meantime, you may want to have a look at this link, if you need further support. The forum is currently low-frequently updated, so we need a kickstart with it.But it’s still a community so it may be a good idea to take a look there.
Our documentation site is also up and running here.
To be continued…
DNS Blacklist – dnsbl.tornevall.org ?
Since many of you visitors actually asked for it: Yes, it’s still there. We are still alive. We are however a little bit delayed in our process. We’re working on moving everything to the same domain, since SSL certificates cost. Having more than one wildcard certificate is way too inefficient – and that’s why dnsbl.tornevall.org has been removed from our roadmap – for now.
So for the moment, all requests are handled manually: Removal requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our primary SLA on this case is high, so hopefully you’ll get a response as soon as possible (normally immediately up to 12 hours).
It’s a bit messy here right now, and has been since december 2015 – when our primary server died in a power failure. The server we’re using is a highly temporary solution, while we’re waiting to move out to a better place.
So, to answer your question: We’re still alive – we’re just reorganizing.
