htmlobserver is a program that downloads a Web page at regular intervals, and searches it for regular expressions. All HTML tags are removed, and the remaining text is searched for regular expressions, which can be defined in a list. Matching rows are displayed in a panel, and different alarms may be triggered. The alarms are repeated when the result set changes.
I'm sorry but this project is completly useless, if you use an automated update tool. Indicated is, when the project was last updated - not run.
Re: open protocol vs. open host for spamming
smtp is an open protocol, but isn't the mail sent from winboxes, where trojan malware and rootkits took control for spamming?
Did we hear from Linux-clients which use smtp too, that sent spam?
