In progress Bots registering on forum(or something else)

Post by Camaga on February 19th 2016, 10:49 pm

Hello,

Lately i've noticed weird accounts registering on my forum. Most of them have weird names and .ru domains. None of them have visited the forum.I suspect it's some kind of a bot attack.I have banned all of them.I'm looking forward to a reply as soon as possible.Thanks.

I think you must use wildcard * to ban those e-mails addresses here is an example of banning e-mail addresses *@spamhosterurl.ru by this way you can ban all e-mail addresses from the spam mail hoster. By using this method you will disallow them from fake registration e-mails.

Well, sometimes people will register, but not log in.

Hello,

What SLGray says is true, whenever I get a new account on my forum, even if it sounds looks like it might be a spambot/spammer, I don't ban, I instead let it stay there, if and when it posts, I will know then whether or not it is a spammer/spambot and then ban it. That way I don't rism banning potential new members by mistake. Smile
