What is vB Bad Behavior?
This is an integration of the Bad Behavior software with vBulletin.

What is Bad Behavior?
Bad Behavior is a PHP-based solution for blocking link spam and the robots which deliver it. Bad Behavior complements other link spam solutions by acting as a gatekeeper, preventing spammers from ever delivering their junk, and in many cases, from ever reading your site in the first place. This keeps your site's load down, makes your site logs cleaner, and can help prevent denial of service conditions caused by spammers.

Visit http://bad-behavior.ioerror.us/ for more.

Features
For more information on the features of Bad Behavior (and subsequently this mod) please go to Bad Behavior's site:

http://bad-behavior.ioerror.us/documentation/benefits/

For features related to the mod itself, please take a look at the screenshots.

This mod should work with the entire 3.x series (well, beginning with 3.5), but it's only been tested on 3.8.x. I'm not sure if this works on vB 4.x yet, as I've not tested it - but if you try it out, let me know!

Installation
1. Extract the contents of the zip file.
2. Upload the contents of the `upload` folder to your forum root.
3. Enter your AdminCP and go to Plugins & Products > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]
4. Import the product using the `product-vb_badbehavior.xml` file.
5. Configure the mod in AdminCP -> vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> vB Bad Behavior Options

Upgrading

vB Bad Behavior
In many cases, all you'll need to do to upgrade is follow the installation instructions above.

The only difference, will be you'll need to allow the files to overwrite. Also, when re-importing the product file, you'll need to set "Allow Overwrite" to "Yes".

Bad Behavior
Bad Behavior's files are at `/includes/bad-behavior/`. If you wish to update manually go to:

http://bad-behavior.ioerror.us/download/

And download the latest development version. Extract the zip, and upload the contents of `bad-behavior` to `/includes/bad-behavior/` allowing the files to overwrite.

Versions
The current version of Bad Behavior this mod is using is: v2.2.14
The current version of Bad Behavior (development) is: v2.2.14

You have got a point there. What would be the optimal approach to allow legitimate users to use Tapatalk?
BB blocks it by default.

I wish somebody had told me that sooner! Can you send me a log entry to look at, so I can fix the core (or alternately yell at Tapatalk for screwing something up on their end)?

This is defnitely Tapatalk's fault. They didn't send a User-Agent string when POSTing, which almost always indicates malicious behavior. In addition, in my testing with Tapatalk for Android, it sent several different user-agent strings (and one was obviously fake) when performing GET requests. This is something Tapatalk really needs to fix, and should have fixed long ago. It started to make me wonder if maybe spammers wrote Tapatalk...

Until Tapatalk fixes their apps, whitelisting the URL is probably the best you can do.

I tried to install the plugin on 3.6.8 and said I need 3.7 or something. I downloaded the 1.0.9 should I be using a different version for 3.6.8? Thanks for help.

What I was using before didn't go well, so, moved to Git/GitHub. Feel free to create issues there, fork, do whatever!

Thanks for the update. This was in logs, I think prior to the update:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting ')' in /public_html/includes/functions_vb_badbehavior.php on line 284

I have not been able to reproduce this. What is on line 284 for your file? For me, it is the below, which has not changed for quite some time:

When you update for 2.2.11, would you please upload to here as well? Increasing number of spammers lately, hoping this may help!

I meant to say when 2.2.12 is released, which it is now apparently. If you could upload your next update here I would greatly appreciate it, thanks!
