    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>During the last few days a bot using a name FuntKlakow, has been
    registering to at least hundreds (maybe thousands) of phpBB forums.

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=com&...ow&btnG=Hae&me ta=

    Bot is also capable for posting to forums:
    http://forum.uebimiau.org/search.php...thor=FuntKlako w
    http://www.alternativ.ro/forum/searc...ch_author=Funt Klakow

    But most on most forums the bot keeps silent.

    Ok, what is a danger?
    Next time the phpBB announces a critical vulnerability, the bot would
    have everything ready (just a post click away) from attacking
    thousands of sites/forums.

    Best defence against these kinds of bot-members, might be setting up
    honeypot-forums, which the search engines can find but to which there
    are no permanent links from the web. When new bot-members are
    detected, such would be listed at each particular forum makers
    homepage.

    When a bot would then try to register to a forum, the forum program
    would check the user/bot inputted user-name (or other characteristics)
    and if those would match to those catched by a honeypot-forums,
    registerin such user detais would be eliminated ( and possible IP
    banned for some time)</div>

    HOLY SHIT!!

    GIMPY OR FOX..please set up secrutiy measures!! We could lose this forum!

    Ill try to get to the bots program code and disable it..

    We aren't on phpBB though... so this forum isn't vulnerable to this particular attack.

    phpbb is free coding what do you expect..... you pay for good stuff. vB works on all bugs and security patches.... as of now I haven't seen a vBulletin 3.5 series hacked yet, unless someone was using beta....... which in that case can happen it's beta however now it has a full release so we are okay. Don't worry guys vB is very safe and strong. :)

    Gaming.word seems to be a phpbb forum, so make sure they take precautions over this Zayne.
