        • Nuno is right - the vB3 and vB2 systems are practically identical. The vB3 code is a little more adventurous though, as we have more time to test that version.

              Just out of curosity Kier but is there a non-GD version of the image registration in the to-do list?

              I saw another codehack here (forgot who's) but had a Javascript write out a code to confuse the bot.

                There are currently no plans to support a non gd version at this time.

                    I actually installed my test server offline.

                        Why can't you do that? It took only several minutes to make. I haven't been hit by the 3rd and 4th waves of the porn bots.

                        • I'm getting really confused here...(and it doesn't take much!)

                          Would somebody, preferably a vB developer or Mod please answer briefly in this post what steps we should be taking. I'm getting conflicting signals and if I'm reading this correctly different hacks. I have vB 2.2.9 and have blocked these IPS:

                          200.206
                          210.220
                          211.28.96

                          these email domains:

                          bonBon.net
                          hotpop.com
                          gamebox.net

                          The last attempt by billy could not get past the email verification because i have blocked gamebox.net. I switched the porn users to awaiting COPPA registration. (because a couple of weeks ago, one of the vB developers said to do that when you need to ban)

                          I haven't updated to 2.2.9 because frankly I'm new at this and I'm scared that I'll screw things up. I was planning to wait for the release of 3.x.

                          I don't understand what else needs to be changed in the admin panel. I'm sure that I'm not the only newbie who is lost - so please somebody explain in one post all the steps that should be taken.

                          Thanks

                          • well, it seems that you have done good work till now

                            upgrading would help you more of course, but if you don't want to, it looks good so far what you've done..

                              • Hate to tell you guys "I told you so", but a year ago I posted a question about the exact same thing and nobody paid any attention to me:

                                http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...ght=bots+image

                                Just goes to show how legitimate security concerns are neglected until theory becomes reality.
