#3838752 Block Skype Resolvers From Capturing Your IP Address (Protection from DDOS)

Posted zaeya on 21 January 2013 - 08:06 PM

Poppychulo posted a thread covering how to protect yourself from DDOS without using a proxy. This actually works, despite the fact that you may or may not trust him. He didn't write the VBS script and I remembered seeing it on a few forums during the summer and can confirm that this does work.

The reason people are so easily able to pull your IP right now is because of an exploit in the way Skype is programmed. By making use of this exploit, your IP is exposed as long as Skype is sending/receiving data with your username as long as you are connected to the internet and Skype is on your computer. This is why, despite numerous Skype username and IP changes, you could still be instantly DDOS'd again. The only way to combat this, other than removing Skype or never connecting to the internet without an intermediate connection, is to patch Skype to fix the exploit, effectively blocking Skype resolvers from capturing your IP address.

This works for Windows XP and up, I will work on writing one for Macs. You need to have TOR installed. (https://www.torproject.org/)

I personally just downloaded the TOR Expert Bundle and ran TOR.exe with elevated privileges. The default configuration (torrc) works with this script as it is. You could also download the Vidalia bundle and change the configurations. There are several YouTube video Tutorials on setting it up with various applications.

Make sure to change your IP AFTER patching Skype. You will need to do this because resolvers return the last known good IP if they are unable to find the current one.

Quit Skype.

Open notepad and copy and paste this VBS script :


Script:


Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
ss= objShell.RegRead ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Skype\Phone\SkypePath")
ss= """" + ss + """"
'Add Block rule
objShell.run "netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=""SkypeBlockTCP"" dir=out action=block program=" + ss + " enable=yes protocol=any profile=any"
'Add Allow rule
objShell.run "netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=""SkypeAllowToProxy"" dir=out action=allow program=" + ss + " enable=yes remoteip=127.0.0.1"
'Turn On firewall
objShell.run "Netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on"
msgbox "Skype Is Patched Successfully."

If you get an error (the box will pop up and disappear, you may not be able to read it).

Use this script instead:

If WScript.Arguments.length =0 Then
  Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
  'Pass a bogus argument with leading blank space, say [ uac]
  objShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", Chr(34) & _
  WScript.ScriptFullName & Chr(34) & " uac", "", "runas", 1
Else
  Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  ss= objShell.RegRead ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Skype\Phone\SkypePath")
  ss= """" + ss + """"
  'Add Block rule
  objShell.run "netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=""SkypeBlockTCP"" dir=out action=block program=" + ss + " enable=yes protocol=any profile=any"
  'Add Allow rule
  objShell.run "netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=""SkypeAllowToProxy"" dir=out action=allow program=" + ss + " enable=yes remoteip=127.0.0.1"
  'Turn On firewall
  objShell.run "Netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on"
  msgbox "Skype Is Tored"
End If

Save this as dafaq.vbs, make note of the location you saved it in.

Hold the Windows key and type r. Use the Browse button to find the VBS file you saved. Select it, and click run.

If it was successful you should see a message box indicating it was Patched successfully.

DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET. I would recommend disconnecting your modem from its power source.

Open Skype and navigate to Connection options.

Use the following settings (make sure it matches perfectly, otherwise it will not work):

Reconnect your internet connection. Change your IP. Connect to Skype. Congrats, you can't be resolved!


#4388224 This game will never be balanced. There is only one fix.

There is only one fix

#4388192 This game will never be balanced. There is only one fix.

Posted Hobbesqt on 16 February 2015 - 01:33 AM

For fucks sakes. To beat this dead horse fully, let's drop the reasons this post is retarded.

1. It will never happen, and Blizzard will do everything they can to keep abilities the same so that new players don't have to learn double the abilities.

2. Even if this happened, you would not see balance, or anything near it. Blizzard already separates many things into PVE/PVP groups when they have no other ways to balance, and it results in the game you have now. The "fix" you suggested won't do anything.


If you want to actually balance the game, you need to NOT listen to the playerbase, and divide the specs into tiers. Every class gets one top tier at least, and go from there. Stop trying to make frost, fire, and arcane viable. Stop making boomchickens viable. Religate the hard to balance classes to a lower tier, but where they can still run BGs and shit, and move on. It will piss a lot of people off, but you will have a balanced game (to within certain percentages), and you can grow it from there.

A tier list also let's you focus on spec, and then that allows you to use arena representation as an important measuring stick for performance. Look at other games that have an active competitive scene with a lot of unique classes/characters, and you will see the same thing develop naturally, and the devs allowing it (Pokemon, Smash Bros, and I think LoL).


Tier 1: Need to be top tier. This provides every class an option in PvP, whether they like the spec or not. This should be the top focus of Blizzard's balancing efforts.
  • unholy
  • resto druid
  • MM hunter
  • frost
  • MW monk
  • holy pally
  • disc
  • sub
  • resto shaman
  • afflic
  • arms
Tier 2: Focus on maybe getting some of these to top tier, as long as the meta and balance issues aren't crazy. This gives the people that play hybrid classes for a reason other than healing a reason to play. This is mostly doable as well. Personally, I fall in this tier as a druid that doesn't have any desire to heal. Important note: for druid and shaman, fixing one spec is vastly more important than fixing both. If you can get feral or boomkin fixed and stable in the meta, leave the other one alone for a bit and let it sit.
  • feral/boomkin
  • WW monk
  • ret
  • shadow
  • enhance/ele
Tier 3: Fuck these specs with regards to arena (sorry). If you have a spec that accidentally balances itself in this tier, then fuck it, leave it. Otherwise, stop trying to make it happen, because it isn't going to happen. These specs all have similar play-styles available to them in classes.
  • frost dk
  • BM/surv
  • arcane/fire
  • holy priest
  • assas/combat
  • demo/destro
  • fury
Tier 4: Tank specs. All 5 of them. Fuck you. Stay unusable in arena. You are a flag carrier and nothing more. It is simply not possible to balance while remaining viable in PVE. You get to play BGs and RBGs at best.


This is the path to actual balance, and has actually somewhat been Blizzard's strategy up until recently. Recently, they are just taking potshots at every class and trying balance every single spec all at once, right at the start of an expansion. The strategy above needs to take place every expansion, from scratch. You need to focus on one tier at a time, let the meta settle to ensure you don't have any S5 DK fiascos, then bring in the next tier. By the end of the expac, you can begin to see specs like destro and fire enter the fray. If the following expac allows for it, you might be able to speed up the rate at which you introduce the tiers to the expac.


Trying to say we need a full division between PVE and PVP just shows me you are failing to see things from any perspective other than the hardcore player. You need to be able to see and think as a hardcore, as a casual, as a newbie, as a noob, and most importantly, as a developer.


#4389452 Patch 6.1 next week

Posted Lolflay on 18 February 2015 - 07:11 AM

Ah, so it's going to be useless.

It needs to find middle ground, 50k hp on use would've been perfect, on a 2 or 3 min cd. 30k hp is one eviscerate.

i hope they would revert the starfall pvp nerf too.

CD on poly too while you are at it.

In that case, 2 minute cooldown on trap, or 30 sec cooldown with arming time. Really, hunters should just shut the fuck up and know their place in the grand scheme of things, pretty much every Hunter with an opinion that isn't anti-trap and frozen ammo at this point is a second class citizen and shouldn't even have the right to speak.


As for topic at hand, Flameglow needs a big fat fucking nerf, agreed.
