Porn Issue



  • I have connected to Jabbercom and I see there is too much porn. Besides blocking user I think there should be admin option to block IP address. Is this implemented and how do you guys fight with pornt to keep the site/network "clean"?



  • This is the biggest issue (I don't think this is considered porn, still we would like to get rid of the phenomenon) and we are working on a solution to avoid unwanted adult content.
    Meanwhile, there is the user filter, the ban buttons and yes, there is IP blocking from admin interface. At this moment there are 5500 banned IP addresses.



  • Could you please explain how I can ban user by IP? It should be automated process:

    1. Admin is watching chats
    2. If you are logged in as admin and see user who is violating terms (porn) there is icon to block his IP (similar to report abuse icon).

    I think this could be very fast and effective and you could get some people helping you cleaning up the network…



  • Yes, this is really big problem for the reputation of chatroulette. It seems Jottle and chatroulette are solving this problem somehow. Jottle says it uses face regogniztion software, I'm not sure whether it works or not, it is always empty or no people



  • Chatroulette could have admins sitting there and banning IPs or like you said face recognizion, but I think it is too sophistacted for them.

    If the problem is not solved, I have great domain (actually is true) MasturbateTogether.com. It is funny, but I actually have this name on DomainsHeat.com available for sale. I have checked JabberCam.com, it is great website and software, but unfortunatly it matches my domain name in most cases :) Maybe we could trade domain for some work you guys could do for me in exchange? Let me know.

    Here are the admin functions: http://www.videosoftware.pro/forum/THREAD-JabberCam-admin-tasks


    Again, please avoid double posts! Press "post thread", "post reply" only once.



  • Sorry, It was my browser "stuck"



  • OK, I did some research. It appears that Chat Roulette is automatically blocking user IP if enough people report abuse. Is this functionality (auto block IP) already in RVC? If yes what is the number of abuse reports to block IP and how to change it? I would also assume that abuse report should come from different IP sources to avoid abuse of abuse functionality…

    You can hire somebody to sit in the chat and report abuse of users, in that case system would identify him as admin (admin user) and execute add to blocked IP immediately. Right now I think it is very inconvenient as you need to track IP and login to admin to report it...



  • This functionality is included in RVC and can be set in config.php (or the java application with Red5). In config.php, you have o edit these lines:

    /* User filtering and ban*/
    $NUM_REPORTS_TO_BAN = 3;				// set the report button (number of reports needed for a user to be banned)
    $BAN_TIMEOUT = 180;						// set the report button, minutes (ban reported user for XX minutes)
    
    


  • Fantastic! I believe what you really need (to get porn issue resolved) is:
    1. User login as admin; to make it simple maybe provide username in config; so it will be unique and only admin knows it.
    2. When admin user clicks ban, it automatically gets banned
    Than you or somebody you hire can sit on the chat and keep banning them, just by one ban click, instead of going through time consuming process of getting user IP and loogin to admin interface and typing all…



  • Adobe Cirrus allows 8 video connections at the same time. The above is not possible unless you are using AFMS, Red5 or Wowza.



  • Not sure if I communicated well, not sure I understand your reply. If you are banning IP adress now, all you have to do is add:

    If userid=admin than BanIP(getuserip);

    How you getting IPs of connected user now? You are banning them now, so you must have a way to get IP.

    To test if user is admin, could done by reading cookie for example. If you login to admin interace, set a cookie.

    Please clarify. Thanks.



  • The software is saving IP address in 'bans' table, where:
    ip = IP address of reported user
    report_count = number of reports from other users (1 report/user)
    ban_time = time when report_count reached the limit, $NUM_REPORTS_TO_BAN set in config.php and ip got baned

    ban_time will be compared to $BAN_TIMEOUT (config.php) and ban is lifted after current time - (minus) ban_time > $BAN_TIMEOUT


    This is pretty straightforward, you can add/edit/modify the banned IP addresses with a simple MySQL query written in PHP or any other programming language. You can also compare with the allowip/blockip/listblocked functions from admin.php


    These php samples give you the method to create your own admin interface or implement te software into any platform.
