Spambots

@site admin:

If you wanna get rid of them, rename your register.php and all occurences of register.php in the rest of the vbulletin code and templates to something random.

best regards,

psycho

Re: Spambots

i'll make sure this is passed along in the mod's room, if we can't fend the attack off otherwise it may help. Thanks!

And to all just to confirm; we're aware. Me and Stercogburn have cleared some out, best thing to do is report it when you see it to make sure we get a notification. You don't have to report EVERY post by a spam user, one or two is fine.

okay

If you dont trust me on this, just reverse engineer the behavior of these spambots in the server logs.

They all initially access the register.php not by searching the landing page of the site, looking for the register link, but by directly trying to access a [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
assuming that every board or blog software has one.
