BlackListPlugin is now going totally "bananas"

[error] [client] loooooooong list of filter URLs seperated by vertical bar cut out - referer: http://merlin.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/edit/Myweb/EditTableTest?t=1167566190 [Sun Dec 31 13:04:08 2006] [error] [client] loooooooong list of filter URLs seperated by vertical bar cut out - at /usr/local/apache2/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/BlackListPlugin.pm line 271., referer: http://merlin.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/edit/Myweb/EditTableTest?t=1167566190


The following entry floods the Apache error logs with very large messages in TWiki installations:

blog\.goo\.ne\.jp\/\maxikon2006\/ # 2006-12-12:WM


Unrecognized escape \m passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in: blog\.goo\.ne\.jp\/\m <-- HERE axikon2006\/

I asked MediaWiki and the spam merge person to fix the faulty regex line upstream.

In the mean time you can remove the faulty line from pub/TWiki/BlackListPlugin/_spam_merge.txt and set the SPAMLISTREFRESH setting to a high value.

We need to make the plugin able to sort out garbage lines.


The merge spam script upstream filters out illegal regexes; MediaWiki is dropped as a source due to quality problems. No action required.
