I just installed this yesterday on my site and love it so far.

I have it installed in my global.php file as well as the separate archives/global.php file. I installed this specifically because my vbulletin install was apparently being exploited by a Joomla attack? I don't understand how it was working since I don't have Joomla installed on the server, but it appeared to work through archive/index.php.

Anyway -- very powerful script and works great. A little common sense goes a long ways -- seeing the people say how their own IP got blocked shows that reading the manual is too hard for some folks. *facepalm*

We used to use that and it worked well, but it was occasionally banning the ip of people who used search because something in the url was triggering it. It probably could have been fixed easily but I never had the time to look at it so we eventually removed it. That was a few years ago so that problem may have been fixed.

Edit: oops, I missed that we're on page 3 of this thread. Maybe it's been discussed already.

If you're not losing the spam war I suggest you be very wary of installing this, it looks like you will lose legit visitors under the default settings.
Any updates on this one? It would be great if you could code a vBulletin plugin for it. Seems like a good tool and idea if one could tweak it to the most optimal settings.
