Multiple Account Registration Prevention

Released: 19 Sep 2006 Last Update: 01 Oct 2006 Downloads: 1739
Not Supported Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

*Note* This requires the Multiple Account Login Detector (AE Detector) in order to function. Big thanks to MPDev for the AE Detector hack, I have used/modified his code for use in parts of this mod (with permission).

*Note 2* My forum's servers are driving me nuts right now, big load times, etc and I'm about to cut myself from waiting for a page to load - so I haven't thoroughly tested all the new goodies I've added. If you find that something doesn't work please let me know.

Description
When an user registers, this plugin checks for the cookie that the AE Detector sets, if it exists, then this plugin will move the user to a specified usergroup (default is to the (COPPA) Users Awaiting Moderation usergroup). This will now check the user's IP address upon registration, and if it matches any others, it will place them in the Multiple Account (MA) usergroup . Also you have the option to ban the new account if the old account was banned.

You can turn the new features on/off accordingly in the settings area.


Install / Upgrade
Download the attached XML file, and import it at
Admin Control Panel > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product

I just needed to post...we have a troll who just won't go away (he registered his 10th account a few minutes ago) and this add-on to the original mod has been wonderful. He is using AOL proxies about half the time to register and this mod catches him if he happens to use the same one he's used before (yes some legit users are coming up on the list when he registers, and yes some innocent new members may get caught, but I'm willing to take that risk; at least the accounts are frozen until I can get online and investigate. The guy is very easy to spot by his email addies and often his usernames).

So anyways, this mod is great. Although as stated before, the guy isn't being put in the banned group, he's always going into the users awaiting moderation group. I can live with that and all, but as is the option to move them to the banned group is basically useless.

Found a bug:
if your includes/config.php has its db type set to mysqli, it breaks registration, e.g:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To fix it, you need to update the register_addmember_process under Manage Products to the following:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

it is changing "mysql_num_rows($multip)" to "$vbulletin->db->num_rows($multip)"

Hi I installed the hack in 3.7

If I have a user that has logged in and then he is making a new registration then the hack it's catching him.

But ……..

One user has registered into my forum at 16:00 (let’s say) from IP address 11.111.111.111 (of course it is not the real IP). After 30 minutes he is registering again with different username/mail but from the same IP. Shouldn’t be captured by the hack ??

Thanks,

John B.
