ipChecker – Check If A IP Is From Tor Or Is A Malicious Proxy


Tool to check if a given IP is a node tor or an open proxy.


Sometimes all your throttles are not enough to stop brute force attacks or any kind of massive attacks, so it can help you to drop, some attackers who use tor or open proxies.

How it works

The ipChecker has some plugins which scrap proxies ips from public sites, all this ip’s are stored in a database where you can make consults using the provided API.

Basically, when you run the command make run it will start docker swarm create one service for the API which can be escalated and starts with 4 containers, another service for the updater which is the script responsible to run all the plugins that grab all the proxies and tor nodes,this service starts with only one container, and at last one container for the mongodb where all data are stored.

The containers communicate through a docker network called ipchecker-network, and only the port 8080 is exposed where you consume the API.

To avoid a lot of false positive, the api only returns ip’s from the current day, because almost proxies servers and tor nodes, are dynamic ip’s.
