TorBlock is a standard [[Plug-ins|plug-in]] that is shipped with the [[BZFlag Source]] code. It automatically bans any user that joins the game who uses the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tor_%28anonymity_network%29 TOR anonymity network].

TorBlock was added in to the [[BZFlag 2.0.9|2.0.9]] CVS source code on 12/20/06, and will be released as part of [[BZFlag 3.0]] when it is released.

==Usage==
+
When loaded TorBlock loads up the TOR master IP list from [http://moria.seul.org:9032/tor/status/authority http://moria.seul.org:9032/tor/status/authority], and will from then on disconnect all users from any of those IP addresses. The TOR network is not intended for game play use and is generally only used in BZFlag for [[Server Spamming]] or other disruptive effects. TorBlock will automatically update its ban list every hour with new IPs. TorBlock works independently of the built in [[Banfile]] capability of [[BZFS]] so it will automatically allow users from blocked IPs as soon as they are removed from the TOR master list.

+
==History==
+
TorBlock was the first plug-in to do a dynamic ban feature that pulled from a central web repository. It was made in response to a Tor Based attack on the popular game servers.
