Anti Bot Attack 2.1

The most efficient way to Block Bots without having to check them!

    Have you ever wondered how do big servers don’t suffer from bot attacks? Either online or offline?
    Your bungeecord gets overloaded and ram on 100%?
    You search the web for protections but anti-proxy plugins are ineffective and iptables just protects too much?

    This is your best solution! You don’t have to worry more about it because this plugin will use the best method to protect you: ONLINE MODE and still work on offline servers.
    • Lightweight
    • Works for bungeecord AND spigot
    • Detects bot attacks and enables online mode protection (Configurable)
    • Your players won't loose any settings because the server will still log online players as offline (uuid).
    • Non-bot players will still be able to login since the plugin can recognize them.
    • You can change your motd when bots are attacking.
    • No tasks, no mysql, no nothing!
    • During a bot-attack you can choose wether to let only premium players log in
    Just like a vulnerable server owner I was once, people often enjoy downloading spam bot tools and considerate themselves as "supreme hackers". Spamming bots is a skill less attack, and I consider it as an offline minecraft vulnerability. So everyone should be able to get protection to this, without paying for it.

    • Nothing if you are using bungeecord version
    • ProtocolLib (for Spigot version only)
    • Java 8 (recommended)
    • Offline or Mixed Mode Server


    Every server has offline players and premium players. Anti Bot Attack detects patterns of bot-attacks and enables the perfect protection: Online Mode
    What about non-premium players?
    - They will still be able to join :) The plugin will recognize them because they accessed through the Server-List and they will be able to join if the protection is enabled.

    What are the best news? This works for EVERY TYPE OF SERVER - Offline, Mixed-Mode… Without players losing any items!

    Whenever a bot attack is happening the plugin only allows original players in, during a configurable amount of time (or until bot attack ends) and if the server is offline, they will keep their offline UUID.

    This is what the bots will see:
    This is what the players can see:


    Known Incompatibilities:
    There are no other known incompatibilities. It should be compatible to every bungeecord mixed mode authentication plugins.

    # Anti Bot Attack
    # By: imTedzi
    # Configuration Details
    # MAX-LOGINS - Max logins allowed per time defined in "PER-HOW-MUCH-SECONDS"
    # PER-HOW-MUCH-SECONDS - How much seconds should the protection detect max logins
    # ANTIBOT-TIME - How much time will the Antibot Protection kick in and prevent offline logins
    # DEBUG - You won't need to enable this :)
    # UNABLE-TO-LOGIN - Message that is given to the player in case an internal error occours
    # CHANGE-MOTD - In case there's a bot attack happening, do you wish to update the motd to warn the players?
    # MOTD-PROTECTION-ENABLED - To which motd?
    # OFFLINE - If your server is offline, leave this as true. If you have a mixed-mode server,
    # it means you log your online players as in an online server, so put this as false.
    # PING - Another protection method over the default one, if you enable this, players who pinged the server (which
    # means players who saw the server in the Server-List) will also be allowed in when an attack is happening (besides premium).
    # REFRESH-TIME - During a period of time, the plugin will refresh the whitelisted players who saw the server in the
    # Server-List. You can change the time here, case of doubt, leave it as default.
    # CACHE-SIZE - Some massive bot attacks try to fill your BungeeCord RAM. To avoid that, I've set a Max CACHE-SIZE for
    # whitelisted players who saw the server in the Server-List. Increasing = more valid players are allowed during bot attacks
    # Case of doubt, leave it as default.

      It is clearly explained which players the bot blocks and how. It uses the online mode protection to prevent your server from burning. Please consider reading the plugin information.

      Enable ping protection ( = true) in the config and then give me feedback by PM if it solves your problem.
