In the past 4 years, the Gemini CDS has created quite the debate about malicious Second Life™ software and resident privacy. It has been analyzed many times over the years and found as very secure and effective. There have been no cases of misuse, breach of privacy or security breaches of the system in any form.

First off, we would like to emphasize that the Gemini Client Detection System should not be seen as some kind of silver bullet to defeat any malicious, SL related software. It will not give you 100% protection, yet it is fairly efficient at identifying and getting rid of people running viewers with copybot/griefing functionality, spam bots, beggar bots, grid crawling bots who don't identify themselves, known sim crashers and such.

The project has been proven serious and very effective, it has been in place grid-wide for over 4 years now, employed by most of the big brands in SL, shopping regions, rental estates and clubs, while comparable systems and their creators have been removed from the grid over serious TOS offenses.

With a simple menu system and 1-click installation process, the CDS is an orb-like device, rezzable on your land. If an avatar entering your land is detected and identified as harmful, it can be teleported home and banned from the parcel automatically (Estatebans can be done via included Opensource script). Avatars will stay in the database forever and treated as potentially harmful, even after returning to a harmless viewer. CDS is a networked system, banlists are automatically shared so CDS users benefit from each other. All the heavy-lifting and calculations are processed outside of the grid leaving CDS lag-free and secure.

Detection is done in various ways, reliable with no chance for false positives. It works region-wide without utilizing channel listeners, probe-rezzing, sensors, !quit spamming or other inferior techniques. In accordance to the Second Life TOS there is no way for users to see any sensitive information or even add people to our database, it is completely automated.

Automatic banning and kicking is disabled by default, you have to enable that explicitely. This item is NO COPY and license based, at the end of your licensing period, the device will deactivate and you will have to replace it with a new one.

CDS is currently under new management and is undergoing some transitional changes. CDS is now provided free of charge, however feel free to donate to help with the server costs.

Unreliable and ridiculous! DON'T USE!

This thing goes wild and ejects and BANS too many people at random. About a fourth of my visitors get banned permanently. It cost me more money than it could ever save me. DO NOT USE THIS THING!!

This system unfairly bans people

Posted November 23, 2020 by StarletSky Magic 1 star

I don't know what this system is based on but it is not 100% reliable. I visited a store recently (that I've been to on several occasions), and now I'm banned there due to this system. In fact, this is the only store that I am banned from. I do not own or use any malicious software/viewer, so I'm not sure what could have triggered this thing to ban me. I tried contacting the creator to see if they could assist me, and have yet to hear from them.
