I'd be interested to know if the tweaks have worked for others or is it just me that they haven't worked for? I see that a forum has started on Wilders to support Shadow Defender usership.

Just tried it also on my system at home, it's working too. Even with this:

Name: general.useragent.override
Value: Googlebot

(without the above mentioned "/2.1" in the value)

So, it's working for me on two systems.

Apply the tweak, then visit http://www.ericgiguere.com/tools/http-header-viewer.html

In the table, do you see an entry like this one?

Code:
user-agent    Googlebot

Patrick is there a way of reversing the block lists implemented thats causing inaccessibility? Do you have the power as a mod to simply stop new members from registering? If so it would be good to keep the forum as an archive that can be viewed instead of it being down due to spammers.

Hi Rico,
I can't reverse the block lists at the moment because I can't get in. The structure of the site and the permissions were set up by the admin who is missing, he is the only one that could "physically" gain access to the actual files etc that make up the site, the permissions for the Global Moderator only allowed me to ban by username, ip addresses, to delete posts but not to remove membership. This is a problem when an admin is missing because you end up with links to porn and spam in the members list which you have to trace and ban as well. We are talking about hundreds of porn and other spammers trying to get a hold in some way and leaving porn photos on at night when the mods are not on. So the clean up job becomes quite time consuming if you don't have an admin and unsatisfactory to yourself because of the not having the power to do complete membership removal and take them out of the memberslist. That is why I was forced to take the decision to use a spam ban list. These lists are very large, so I broke the list down into "digestable" chunks (or so I thought) but what I didn't know is that there is a bug in phpbb (some memory problem) that chokes on large lists like that and results in this blank page situation where you are locked out.
If I could login to the site I might be able to reverse the change. I've tried all the things suggested above without success but my own system and security measures to protect my own browsing and servers might be what is preventing me from using the tweaks.

You make something wrong if the http-header-page shows "user-agent Mozilla/4.0" after you made the settings. That seems to be the problem Wink

I am now logged into shadow defender forum using the Firefox useragent switcher and a tor proxy but still cannot access the ban ip page to undo the lists.
I can access everything else but get the blank page on the

I can still access the forums apart from the ban ips in the moderators section and unless Tony comes back then there is not much that either me or Patrick can do about this.

A reason some people may only see a blank page if they have cleared the cookies from the browser.
The browsers that i have cleared cookiesfrom i only see a blank page, those that i havent i can access the forum as normal.

Yes Hawkwind, I'm logged in now but as you said cannot access ip bans...and yes probably only Tony could fix this if he has access
I read that if he had access to phpMyAdmin, he can run this query on the database:
Code: Select all
TRUNCATE TABLE phpbb_banlist;

Strange things happening

Post by Guest on 1/4/2011, 01:48

I have noticed an update to Shadow Defender and have posted to the site at shadowdefendedotorg but they deleted my post as folllows

"I am the global moderator at shadowdefender.com. Can you please give me an explanation as to why Shadow Defender is being sold here as a legitimate Shadow Defender site and outlet? If a realistic explanation is not forthcoming within twelve hours from now I will approach the Internet authorities including The police, Federal Bereau of Investigation and Canadian authorities. If this site is not legitimate please take it down within 12 hours.

Patrick
Global Moderator shadowdefenderdotcom"

I have written to Tony at shadowdefenderdotcom as follows

"Tony, if you are there please contact me urgently. Why is another site selling Shadow Defender and why is it updated on this site without contact with the mods and with a full explanation. I visited the site shadowdefender.org where Shadow Defender is being sold and asked but had my post deleted and if I do not hear from you soon I am going to contact Godaddy, the police, the FBI and internet authorities. I have emailed you, private messaged you but the private messages remain in the outbox. You have my email address so I hope to hear from you soon.

best wishes

Patrick (Global Moderator)"

Both links on shadowdefender.org and shadowdefender.com leading to Avantgate are the same(-https://secure.avangate.com/order/checkout.php?CART_ID=49d063bfd9fcff33921eb3518b12af8a), so whoever updated SD today probably owns shadowdefender.org too, perhaps they're in process of migrating to shadowdefender.org.

well if Tony is missing and Shadow Defender has been taken over or stolen one has to think that Shadow Defender is worth a few $$$$ and is well worth stealing .

Well, disregard my post above, look what I found!

-http://www.acronistrueimage.org/
-http://www.dvdfabreview.com/
-http://www.inteligatorreview.net/
-http://www.advancedpokerbot.com/
-http://www.mobilespyreview.org/

Interesting or what?

Ok, I think I found out what happened here, someone created a few "review" sites for some legitimate software, the links go to the same online store as listed on website of those software, but those are affiliate links.

The one on shadowdefender.org goes to -https://secure.avangate.com/order/product.php?PRODS=2107820&QTY=1&AFFILIATE=16012&AFFSRC=lp

acronistrueimage.org link goes to -https://store.acronis.com/325/cookie?affiliate=11909&x-at=ATIORG&redirectto=https://store.acronis.com/325/purl-atih2011_en-US

etc.

Could you please tell users how this site relates to the original shadowdefenderdotcom and why you are deleting posts asking about this? I am unhappy with this site and will contact the authorities in a few hours. If there has been a buy out or new ownership please give details of verification.

P.S. I have no idea about today's update, but I'd guess either Tony decided not to say anything or he sold SD to another group, because today's update look legit to me(it got a signed driver just like the previous versions), whoever updated it knows about programming and the internal of SD.

I would take the signed driver with a grain of salt - if Shadow Defender has been stolen, the thieves would no doubt feel that it is worth paying for a signed driver.

By the way, it might be worth asking shadowdefenderdotorg for a changelog, just to test the waters a bit?

Patrick you could have given me a heads up that my post disappered lol. Anyways, if I were you I'd ask Avantgate and the hosting ISP about what the heck is going on instead of waiting any longer. Just my $0.02

It seems "Tony" is finally back. Finally received an e-mail reply from him. I e-mailed the following:
Hi Tony,

What are the changes in Shadow Defender version 1.1.0.331? There is
no change log on the site.

Hi ssj100,

It is a bug fixed release version.

Best regards,
Tony
After such a long and unexplained absence, it can be hard to believe that this is the REAL Tony?
