Webhosts & Programmers!

I want to know from you, since I want to run a public proxy then would I still become a target like you say even after adding the following measures ? If so, then how to prevent all this from happening ? The following are the steps I am taking. Do you mind checking if they are safe & sound or not ?

1. Not run an SMTP. This is to prevent anyone using my mail server*to spam;

2. Publicise the user's IP along with the links he visits*to prevent anyone from daring to view illegal sites or upload anything malicious or download anything illegal;

3. Force the user to open an account under a username that matches his domain name and log his username/domain along with the links he visits. Example:

Time|IP|Username|KW Searched|Visited Page

02:59pm|143.133.135.138|www.devnetwork.net|php 7 books|php-book.com

During registration, I would get the php script to prompt the user to submit an email address under his domain name. The email would contain his account activation link. That is how I would make sure that it is Tom Boy who is submitting tom@tomboy.com and not any **** & Harry.*

4. Added a Banned Words Filter that replaces banned words on a proxied page. Will change this to add instead a feature that prevents loading a page that contains banned words.

5. Add a php function*in the proxy script*to block file downloads. That should prevent anyone downloading related to illegal stuffs.

Example, the proxy would replace .mp3, mp4 extensions from links. Change:

https://devnetwork.net/download/php.mp4

to:

https://www.devnetwork.net/download/php.***

That way, any link containing a downloadable extension would not be fetched by the proxy.

Do you think this tactic would work to prevent downloads ?

6. Add php function(s)*in the proxy script*to block audio/video streaming. That should prevent anyone downloading or uploading or viewing/playing any files related to illegal stuffs.

7. Add php function(s)*in the proxy script*to block uploads. That should prevent anyone uploading any files related to illegal stuffs.



QUESTIONS

Q1. So, what is that*php function that blocks downloads*? That should prevent anyone downloading malware/viruses, etc. using my proxy ?

Q2. And, what is that*php function that blocks audio/video streaming (downloading) ? That should prevent anyone viewing video streams using my proxy ?

Q3. And, what is that*php function that blocks uploads*? That should prevent anyone uploading malware/viruses, etc. using my proxy.

Q4. And, what is that*php function that blocks audio/video streaming (uploading) ? That should prevent anyone uploading viruses infected video files, etc. using my proxy.

Q5. And, what is that php function that prevents the user's browser from playing any audio/video files on a website ? Eg. Prevent playing youtube vids, vimeo vids, metacafe vids, clickbank vids,*etc. ?

Q6. And,*what is that php function that records bandwidth usage (uploads & downloads and audio/video streaming) ? I might aswell give each account just enough data limit for them to browse text pages but not enough limit to view or listen to audio/video pages (like youtube vid pages).

Q7. Any other features to add to prevent anyone abusing my public proxy service ? If so, which php functions should I use to add them ?


Thanks!

A1. There is no such function.
A2. There is no such function.
A3. There is no such function.
A4. There is no such function.
A5. There is no such function.
A6. There is no such function.
A7. Publicizing who uses your proxy and what pages they view will be a very effective way of reducing the number of people who (ab)use it.
