What file types do we don't support that you would like us to add?

Making an official thread to keep on top of this better. Most of these are relatively easy to add.

I'm not quite sure why LynxChan has a filter on these. It maybe easy to start a list of what we don't want.


Here's the current list:

EDIT: This is now the /pol/ containment thread

Hi dear site owners,

We have a problem with /pol/. One of our newly appointed mods is apparently the "nigger spammer" who is using Tor to bump old threads. I am suspecting the BO and the mod to be either one and the same person using different VPN mod accounts or BO has hi-jacked the board to crash it by employing his friends or family members.

Right now i was banned for exposing the new mod to be the spammer himself in the board own meta thread. As you may understand /pol/ is a NS board which is targeted by so many groups of people.
While the new mod is creating dozens of "honey pot" threads old popular threads were slid and /pol/ is dying.
The board is dying and I don't know what we suppose to do.
Some posts and threads are deleted, I myself was banned in the meta thread. The mods are creating a chaos and they they use it to ban random people and lock and delete unwanted threads.

The BO himself has developed the tactic to let the mods do the job for him so he keeps his clean image. Once a mod has messed up the board far enough he simply replaces him (likely with the same guy by deleting the old mod account and creating a new one. Ocolette is owning the board for approximately 5 months now and it has become same bs as 8/pol/ were people are getting banned unfairly and for ridiculous reasons.

I have taken screenshots and archived all evidence. I'm ready to upload it if required.
People are now leaving /pol/ in big numbers and I ask you to help to save the board from Ocolette and his moderation.

Well, he is the nigger spammer. That's OPs game. Attack a board and then claim it's moderation. He has since fucked off to 8chan to attack all of endchan, and Odilitime showed up to defend. Lets hope OP stays there.

PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

I had a development server breached that I had an old development copy of the Endchan database (without media).

All users are advised to change their passwords ASAP.

Development server was breached used an redis/ssh exploit. Redis was installed and usually ran as a user but recently doing some development work, I accidentally started it up as root to look something up and left it running. Redis then can write to your ssh keys and insert unwanted keys and allow root access. All files in /root and /home were removed and a note was left:

>Hi, please view here: http://pastebin.com/raw/vadfLyDS for information on how to obtain your files!

Luckily I have bandwidth logs on that box and I can see there was nothing transferred out of the box. So my guess is they just deleted the files. The nature in which they left the machine leads me to believe this was an automated attack (plenty of other meaningful data directories were left alone).

The copy of Endchan's data is left untouched on this development server. However the dump that was used to transfer the copy was still likely in the /root directory that was deleted. I will get the date of the data copy as soon as I can do some data recovery on that machine, I estimated the copy to be an early 2016 Q2 dump. This server is now offline.

At Endchan, we want to be as transparent as we possibly can and even though we do not believe anything was leaked, we cannot rule out nothing happen with 100%. And even if we could be certain that nothing was at risk, we still want to report anything of this nature to our users.

I fucked up, I'm sorry for any troubles this may and has caused any of you.

Please let us know any questions you may have.

LynxChan just completed it's third year and I must say, this project's past year was pretty good. More and more sites running it, including 2 more that migrated and have a considerable amount of traffic. 1.9 and 2.0 fixed it's oldest woes, eliminating slow build times entirely and making the cache much more robust.

Moving forward, I have realized that user-owned boards just didn't caught on. To this day, endchan is still the only LynxChan with relevant traffic that allows it. While I don't think it's worth doing a 180 on how settings and features work to change the focus of the engine, I am going to focus on improving features that benefit sites without user-owned boards. For this, I really encourage chan owners to bring me suggestions of areas that can use improvement for these sites.

I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who contributed this past year. Megamilk, for giving 1.8 and later versions a proper real-world testing. Odilitime for taking his time to test 2.0, which revealed a serious bug. And fapchan for giving a proper migration to be performed, it really helped to pave the way for future migrations.

I'd also like to remember past contributors such as lleaff for giving valuable insight on the very early stages of development, dunecoon for his work with front-ends and doke for designing the face of the project.

I use a private VPN service so I can still access this fine without a need for Tor. Many private VPN services are pretty cheap if you purchase the yearly deal. Cost averages around $50 per year, and you can routinely change IPs anytime you please.

I messed up during the migration. While waiting for the final database copy, I thought I'd upgrade/patch some servers, unfortunately I upgraded the box I was copying from. And I rebooted it without thinking about it. Now I manage around 20 servers that run hundreds of containers, so keeping track of everything isn't as easy as if I just had a couple. Also in my day job I get paid to professional move websites all the time. I make good money doing it, so I'm not a complete newb but I have no accounting for how I made such egregious error. I had a plan and just made a mistake.

Last year when we got the dedicated server, we built state of the art encryption into it. To the normal internet it looks like a website (unlike anything like Endchan) but with a special certificate our frontend server have, it runs the Endchan site. We split the drive into 3 sections, the camouflage (fake site / web server and relay), the app (lynxchan, megud, other site utilities), and the database. Then we encrypted the app and data drives. I held the keys to app, and Balrog the keys to data. We did have the foresight to give a back up of these password to other people just incase one of us got hit by a bus. Well Balrog and his backup StephenLynx both failed to find the correct password from a year ago.

So the two events combined means we can't access the latest copy of the Endchan data. So where does that leave us, well we had a full copy from 4/19 that we were syncing with the live data during the migration time. When it stop copying, it left the database in an inconsistent state. The mongo repair tool has done a great job recovering what you see;

we have most of posts but are missing a lot of database files (a great example of why you never store images in a database; we should only be missing the new files from last week on).

I fucked up, Balrog fucked up, and StephenLynx doesn't even remember us giving him the password. If just one of 4 events had gone another direction, we would not have been here.

I proposed throwing in the towel. My recent battles with pedospammers has not been fun but Balrog put it well: "we're still one of the only imageboards worth a damn and people need us goddamn it"

I considering just running the board with no content, even thought about switch imageboard software. Balrog said we should take it to a vote and let you guys decide. But to be honest we recovered more than I was expecting and the lynxchan repair process (rebuilding HTML files) is still running (going to take a long time on these older servers).

To be clear why we migrated, our donations levels were so low, we could no longer afford that server. Our previous server was awesome, a full year of uptime (Another reason why we never needed these passwords because the machine never went down).

In retrospect our set up was probably more complex than needed but it was just an attempt to help secure you're guys data the best we could. Our new drives are no longer encrypted.

I hate it too and I'm sure a lot of users are turned away by it.
The worst part is that the error is cached in your browser and stays there until you clear your cache or perform a hard refresh which most users don't know how to. Odil should add a no-cache header to that error page.

Also, sometimes this happens to a specific javascript or json file and while the website looks fine if you try it perform an action. For instance it happened to upload.js yesterday and I couldn't upload anything. I had to open the browser console, open upload.js, and do a hard refresh pn that file.
