  • Security issue? IP address is either not being selected properly or is being spoofed.

    vB 2.2.8 Who's online currently shows two sessions without IP addresses. While it's obvious they aren't malicious, they certainly aren't IP addresses either:

    In the IP field of the sessions table:
    "googlebot(at)googlebot.com"
    "mailto:[email protected]"

    Why is this happening and how do we fix it? Assuming this is getting IP information the same way the rest of the forum is, how do we fix it? We don't want users posting with an "IP address" of their choice.

    Thanks,
    Paul

      Oh geesh Okay. I thought it slightly odd that no one had reported it before.

      Thanks Scott,
      Paul
