Description:

Spam Prevention Strategy
Bad Behavior is completely different from any other anti-spam solution out there, in that it doesnít specifically target spam itself. Rather, it targets the methods by which the spam is delivered. While a somewhat similar solution called mod_security exists, it has a rather different purpose, doesnít target spam, and regular people canít install mod_security on their shared web hosting accounts. Bad Behavior blocks spam as well as other malicious activity and can be installed by anyone

In this way Bad Behavior saves you time and frustration and gives you peace of mind by turning spam from a colossal nightmare into, well, not much at all.

Project Honeypot Integration
To participate in Project Honey Pot, webmasters need only install the Project Honey Pot software somewhere on their website. We handle the rest ó automatically distributing addresses and receiving the mail they generate. As a result, we anticipate installing Project Honey Pot should not increase the traffic or load to your website

we have already made this possible for you, all you need to do is signup with www.projecthoneypot.org


Information Update please read:

as we have started a new forum and have and are hiring new Modders to join our team, there are some great benefits for those who do
We are looking for some experienced developers to remod our products
please visit our website for more details


Version 5 will see some great functions, but require our team to remod this product

In lieu of modifying forums.php and content.php, you can create a single plugin with a hook location of global_start. This is how I implemented this. Here is the plugin code I use:

I was able to successfully test that it worked but I don't know how you implemented the files in the attachments and I'm only noting that the calls to the BL can be accomplished through a hook rather than template edits.

Sorry, but you are not the first one to do this as your description says.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=230921

And it involves no manual template edits.

This works by ip address only the one you posted works by username/ip/email. But it is two different databases.

I have them both installed.


update to the mod creator.

Instead of adding any

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Copy the code in the projecthp.php and place it in the plugin you created.
just do not include the <? ?>

This is what I did so there are no files to upload you just import the xml file.

If you wanted to get fancy you could add a option in the adminCP to add the api key so they only have to edit the option and activate the plugin.

I would be willing to help with this if you like.

Simon,

I know you don't need the header template as it did the same for me when I was using it.

The way to check if your implementation is working is found in this tutorial:

http://www.computer-juice.com/forums...http-bl-22790/

How do I test this?

Apart from getting your IP blacklisted on the Project Honey Pots spamlist there doesn't seem to be much in the way of testing this. As there are a few jumps to get to the httpbl.php file I did the following to make sure the final code (step 4) is being called.

Open httpbl.php, find.

$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']

Replace with.

123.44.66.99

Re-upload the file, then test your site. If the file is being called correct you will get a white screen as the code called in the final stage is now broken. It's a crude way but it works. Undo the changes to the file and re-upload again.
You seem to have skipped the creation of an additional PHP file as in the implementation example cited.

Are you sure this is working because the test cited above doesn't seem to create the blank white page the way it used to.

Ok I checked your new version. It is still not what I meant. Your new version actually does not work at all.

I really like this mod as it really helps with fighting spam on our websites. So I decided to rewrite this for you. The XML is attached and the install instructions are below.


Install Instructions:
1) Register an account at www.projecthoneypot.org
- request your api key here http://www.projecthoneypot.org/httpbl_configure.php

2) Import the product (product-t4u_honeypotvb4.xml)
Plugins & Product -> Manage Products -> Add / Import Product

3) Change settings and activate.
Settings -> Options -> Project HoneyPot
Put in your API key you received in step 1.
Set active to yes.

_________________________________________________
Tested and verified working by BBR-APBT.
If you would like to test this for your self.

Edit the plugin (Project HoneyPot) and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I advise you not to perform the above test on a live site.
Attached Files
File Type: xml product-t4u_honeypotvb4.xml (5.6 KB, 11 views)

upload this to your includes/xml folder.
File Name: cpnav_honeypot.xml

I really suggest to not add this or the extra page. That just files to upload.

Good work. Appreciate the mod that allows this to be installed with no file uploads.

Now that it is installed, I'm sad to say that a problem that I had previously with this Script is re-appearing. I had hoped it was as a result of my own implementation.

I cannot create a New Article. I've narrowed it down to this add-on and I'm not certain why but attempting to create a New Article produces an HTTP 500 error.

Are either of you experiencing the same?

It's not on the list. As I said, the software works fine except when I try to create a New Article.

Go to your CMS Home Page and click New Article or try to promote a post to an article to see if you can duplicate the problem. It doesn't give the "Your IP is blocked message" but simply produces a white screen and an HTTP 500 error unlike a blocked IP issue where a message appears allowing you to continue.

As I said, it was the same problem I experienced with the other implementation. My board was working fine as I have only created 3 articles on the CMS since moving the vBulletin Publishing Suite but then one day I went to create an article and I kept getting a white screen. As soon as I disabled my former implementation of the plugin I could create an article again. I've experienced the same problem from military IP's and Starbuck's IP's, and Verizon IP's. It's not a blacklist issue.

I had initially thought that your implementation fixed a coding issue that was in the tutorial I had found but once you released the latest version the problem re-appeared. I actually am not sure that, until this latest release, that the HoneyPot was even functioning because I was testing it with a blacklisted IP and it wasn't working. As soon as the code was updated, the message was popping up for the blacklist IP test but the problem of creating New Articles also re-appeared.

I will try to reproduce this bug when I get back home in a hour or two.


When you turn this mod off the problem goes away right?
