  • [Forum] A lot of visitors

    Hi,

    I am recieving some type of atack , a list users online, and there is a lot of visits with the same ip (and servers blocks me, because forum sends a lots of messages), i could ban the ip, but in the nex day, he uses a diferent ip, is any way to mark, only one visit from one ip.

    i have Version 4.1.2 (with patch)

      its just bots scanning your site use htaccess file and robots.txt this will tell them what they can and cant do but it will take a while for them to update to the bot sites

          I'd advise installing vb Bad Behavior, which effectively deals with malicious bots and lowers your server load. You can find it on vbulletin.org:

          Many bots ignore robots.txt

                Please read through the thread on vb.org
                Then make a list of all bots you have online. You will find PaulM's addon to track guest visits very handy. Then see what the good and the bad bots are and add the bad bots to robots.txt and if that doesnt help add them to the BB blacklist.ini file.

                    Whats his user agent? BB allows you to ban that, if its anything out of the ordinary.
                    Seems like a Spanish bot though.

                          he had not user agent, or bb did't detect it

                            You need the 'track guest visits' hack by PaulM to find user agents. See vbulletin.org
