           Summary: Block open proxy edits to wikis using the DroneBL
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: REL1_22 branch
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: TorBlock
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Due to the large amount of vandalism from zombie proxies and other compromised
machines, it would be helpful to automatically block said machines anon-only
with account creation blocked to prevent the creation of vandalism-only
accounts and sock puppets.

To prevent this, the DroneBL blacklist (see can be used to
automatically prevent edits from known open proxies.

Obviously, this won't stop all open proxy-based vandalism, but it will greatly
cut down on the quantity of the abuse, and it will increase the time it takes
for the vandals to find unblocked open proxies.
