In order to increase security for
our users and prevent illegal IRC activities such as spam and floods
from spreading, ChatNet runs the blitzed open proxy monitor (BOPM)
service. When a client connects to a ChatNet server, BOPM scans the
client for open proxies and determines whether they are really open
by using them to connect back to the server. Abused proxies are
submitted to a open proxies database (DNSBL) maintained by the
Blitzed IRC Network while a temporary or permanent (depending on the
BOPM configuration) K-line is added for the client's host on the
server. If you find yourself K-lined for using an open proxy,
re-configure your proxy consulting the instructions and links
provided in this page and visit the
BOPM DNS blacklist to remove your host from the database.
