Stopping Spambots: A Spambot Trap
Using Linux, Apache, mod_perl, Perl, MySQL, ipchains and Embperl

This document describes my experiences with spambots on my websites, and the
techniques I have developed to stop them dead. I assume the reader has basic
familiarity with Linux, Apache, mod_perl, Perl, MySQL and firewall rules
using ipchains - each of these topics could fill a book, so I won't talk
about installation or basic configuration. I will, however, provide full
scripts and instructions on using these within the context of these tools.
If you'd like some basic pointers on getting set up using these tools, then
you could take a look at my short series of three Linux Network Howto
