Version 2.1.2 - Fixed MySQLi bug - Introduced GOLD/Premium Version
Version 2.1 - Added BBCode to Banned Users and Post Count Options, better debug info
Version 2.0 - Added report for Registration (User) IP Address Checking

Check out the GOLD Version for these additional features:
  • Run reports directly from the Admin CP anytime you want
  • Post daily report as a "New Post" into an existing thread rather than a "New Thread" each night
  • Access to another Gold Mod- Recent Registration Check- will block spammers and scammers trying to register multiple accounts from the same IP address

This mod will run a nightly scan of your "post" and/or "user" table. It will report if it finds any users sharing the same IP address. You choose in the options how many days back you want to look. (Max of 5000 days, but please use more reasonable limits.)

If any "duplicate use" is found the IP addresses, usernames and optionally the posts themselves will be reported.

See a real report: Report Demo at Qapla.com

The report takes the form of a new thread posted to the forum of the Admin's choosing (A private forum for mods or admins is strongly recommended.)

There are options for whitelisting (ignoring) specific IP Addresses and/or userids so if you or your mods post as other users you can prevent that from being reported. If you use the Zoints Anonymous Posting mod you will want to put that userid on the whitelist else the report will out whoever posted "Anonymously."

NOTE: There are PERFECTLY valid reasons 2 or more users may share the same IP address. This report in and of itself is not proof of malicious activity. Users that connect by mobile devices, work in same offices, or go to the same schools for example would likely share the same IP address on some posts. So would too any users connecting from the same home or public Wi-Fi network.

As of version 2.0 there is a report for both the "post" and "user" table. The "user" table will find when 2 or more users register with the same IP address.

Tested and working on VB 3.8.7 and VB 4.1.12/4.2.0 and should work on all 3.7 / 3.8 / 4.x versions.


Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this. :)
Donations always appreciated. :up:
Nominate MOTM if you LOVE it! ;)

thx a lot for MOD my friend

Prorockz 06 May 2012 21:47

it looks great.
is there any kind of PHP error?
i am just confirming:)

BirdOPrey5 06 May 2012 21:51

No errors that i know of, If I knew of any php errors I would have fixed it before releasing.

BirdOPrey5 07 May 2012 20:52

Version 2.0 Released- Now will check the User table too (For Registration IP Check.)

The first time I ran this report I saw one IP being used by 18 people I hadn't noticed. They had never made a post but when I checked their profile they had all spammed their own visitor messages with links.

Without this mod no telling how long they may have lasted.

You will need to do a full install - that is upload the new php file AND import the product xml file, overwriting each, if upgrading.

Ok I installed with no problems and runs great thanks for this release

BirdOPrey5 09 May 2012 13:24

Are you sure you loaded the file to the correct location?

Does it have any other message besides "failed" ?

oshrizak 09 May 2012 13:25

Sorry I found the problem I forgot to put in a valid user id to post to the forum I selected.

oshrizak 09 May 2012 13:34

Is there a way to automate this to run like once a week don't see it in the settings or I am missing it.

BirdOPrey5 09 May 2012 14:00

It is set to run once every night when you install it. You can go to Scheduled tasks and edit how often it runs there.

BirdOPrey5 18 May 2012 13:52

Updated to version 2.1

Added option to apply custom bbcode to banned users in reports.
Added option to show post counts in reports.
