  • Serious problem with potential hacker?

    Okay my forum gets very little posting but over the past 2 months, I keep getting new user notifications and it is clear that one guy is signing up under different emails. I can only assume it's the same person because he uses the same birthdate for every registration. He rarely posts and when he has it's been spam. I've deleted each one and banned him by his user name.

    The odd thing is that he is constantly signing up but rarely posting and then today I noticed that even after I've received a "new user" notification, he is not listed as a member. I check in my control panel and it shows as "user awaiting email confirmation".
    I assumed if I get the new user notice, he would be registered.


    Can anyone offer any insight? Is there a way to ban someone other than email address? He is using a different ip each time.

        It is. And there's another as well in Jan 1980 but yes 3/28/83 is 90% of them.
        Suggestions?

            Well I can't bellieve that of all the vbulletin forums out there, you and I are the only two people who have this situation. As of now I don't know what I'm going to do. I do know this: Most of the email addresses are russian in origin. What that matters I don't know. For now I'm just monitoring things and keeping up on any postings.
