Safeguard update on problematic UserAgents

March 4, 2022

For weeks we have had an increased number of reports about 2 browser user agents. In both cases, they occupy the stream servers for an unnaturally long time. In some cases over several days. At the same time, this often involves much more than one connection.

Fundamentally, such behavior does not necessarily equal wrong. Such listeners may also represent external platforms or other external services that access your radio program.

You can always find more about locks and their explanations here:

Blocking lists are currently regenerated nightly. If the user agents change their IP addresses and continue to occupy your program, these IP addresses will not be present in the blacklists until the next day. For technical reasons, existing listeners cannot be removed. You can fix this by restarting the stream server.
