I wish there was a way to collect just the IP addresses everyone has been posting up with out going through the hole post. This way I can drop them in my ban list.
Even though I have some 267,495 IP banned already mostly from China, venezuela, and the Russian federation just from using the stop forum spam list. If I get a spammer or a hacker report from a member I ban the address range by the C string. 111.222.333.*** Then I use the stop forum spam db to see all the nearby addresses and drop them in just for fun. I haven't had any spammers or hackers get through in months since I started doing that.

That would be an incredible waste of time... These are likely mostly dynamic IPs, in a few days they won't even belong to the people they belong to now.

Also- your vBulletin banned IP list isn't designed to handle hundreds (or thousands) on entries. Each IP is loaded on every page load- keep your banned IP list short. Ban IPs from your server if you have to.

When you 'forget your password?' vb.org sends you a new password that consists only of numbers.

Just ignore them. The system is behaving exactly as it should, by denying access.

china trying to access accounts

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 221.141.1.222
The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 61.158.173.188


Make sure your passwords are up to standards.


If it was me I'd ban all china IP's from the server but that's just me.

So if vB.org was to block all China ip's how would legitimate users from China come here for support and get mods?
