    I think Mirage Anti-Bot should allow the user to specify domain names to be allowed, in case an IP is shared or for some reason a good IP address gets blocked.

    It could allow the user to specify the processes that should be allowed connection to that IP, if it matches a given domain name.

    The reason for this suggestion is quite simple. I've using ZeuS, SpyEye and Palevo C&C IPs, and today I noticed that abuse.ch Palevo tracker is blocking IP 82.165.47.254 and, surprisingly http://amada.abuse.ch/ is hosted on that IP address. :D

    I wonder how something like that happened. I thought the abuse.ch team/security researcher made sure things like this wouldn't happen? o_O

    Feature request (if you are still planning in using hosts file as database):
    Apply the hostsoptimizer function as described here -http://forum.abelhadigital.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4&sid=e22263720f67ec6d5fb6ce3abada39fd
    It will help prevent slowdowns if the size of the hosts file increase. (eg. database keeps increasing)
    EDIT:
    I can't seem to find the direct download from that site, is MirageAntiBotv10_downloader_by_MirageAntiBotv10.exe the actual installer or a downloader for the actual installer? From the name, it is a downloader right?

    Hitman Pro indicates its a trojan. Mamutu - nothing. I deleted it from my PC - I thought, but according Hitman its still there. How do I get rid of it while waiting for a version that has an uninstaller?

    Latest news on Mirage? Very silent - project gone to sleep? Should I just press "Remove" on the file or is there a removal tool I should use?

    Best Regards

    Not sure about the latest news... but part of the protection is now gone. abuse.ch Malware Database (AMaDa) has been discontinued. That includes the Palevo tracker. I don't know if it's still possible for Mirage Anti-Bot to use such data?

    -http://amada.abuse.ch/servers.php

    AMaDa has been discontinued.

    The project is certainly not discontinued.

    Yes, we know about the tweet/mail from abuse.ch that one of three lists is discontinued but we strive to keep Mirage as useful as possible.

    There's been quite sometime... Any news about a new version, or is it pretty much a dead project?

    No, the project isn't dead an we expect an update as soon as possible. The name might change to Phrozen Anti-Bot.

    Thanks. But, the name might be a bit unfortunate. Phrozen (read Frozen) Anti-Bot. :argh: Maybe a name without Phrozen in it. :D

    Well, it's a catchy name... but, it may not be the most appropriate name for a security application. But, who knows. lol
