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.

These are two different things. SFS blocks registration, while BB blocks useragents. I use both stopforumspam and badbehavior together and that works really well.

Please be aware that Spam-O-Matic advertises forum hosting to your moderating team, but does not display this to admins.

Thanks for taking the time to update the VB plugin as well.

BTW, can we assume no new options/settings if nothing is mentioned in the changelog?

That is correct. At this point only Bad Behavior itself has been updated. The product file only changed to reference the new version number.

I recently fell on hard times and just now getting back on my feet. I plan to work on all of my mods soon, with this one as a priority. Basically: I'm still around.
