HOPM (Hybrid Open Proxy Monitor) is an open-proxy monitoring bot designed to monitor an individual server (all servers on the network have to run their own bot if the IRCD does not support `farconnect` user mode) with a local operator {} block and monitor connections. When a client connects to a server, HOPM will scan the connection for insecure proxies. Insecure proxies are determined by attempting to connect the proxy back to another host (usually the IRC server in question).

HOPM is written ground-up in C language and it is an improved fork of BOPM (blitzed open proxy monitor), which is a concept derived from wgmon. It improves on wgmon with HTTP support, faster scanning (it can scan clients simultaneously), better layout (scalability) and DNSBL support.
