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 vB 4.x, it was tested on 4.1.2/4.1.3. Screenshots are from vB 3.x, but it should still look relatively the same with vB4.

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 -> Settings -> 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.

The current version of Bad Behavior this mod is using is: v2.2.14

I was running out of room for attachments here on vB.org - Also, to lower the size of the download... removed the screenshots from the zip files.

Yes, you could. Malicious bots can result in part of that load, if not most of it - with Bad Behavior blocking them, most folks do see a decrease in load.

Thanks for the update ...

This mod seems to block a LOT of things ....

Some of them seem pretty nasty. For example ..

When I click on an item in the log under the key "dfd9b1ad", it says on a pop screen ...

HTTP Response: 403
Explanation: You do not have permission to access this server.
Log Message: Request contained a malicious JavaScript or SQL injection attack
I assume this something trying to do something bad to our site?

Also, I've been to project honeypot site and I can't find anywhere to register for an API key?

Regards,
Doug

looking good so far, its already flagged up a couple of accounts which we had previously banned for being spam bots. If it performs as well on previously unseen spammers, this could be a motm.
