Is Bot: Registration Time Check
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by calorie (Coder) calorie is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (66 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 726
Released: 30 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3427
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This mod calculates the time it takes to go between these two pages:
  • /forum/register.php?do=register
  • /forum/register.php?do=addmember
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.

This one didn't get by, it was blocked but the time factor of 13 seconds on this one concerns me. I wonder what a good time from would be to bump it from 15 seconds to 20 seconds?

The following user name with email address was blocked by the Is Bot mod: WebDocMan - webpharmastoreman@cashette.com (13 seconds transpired)

I haven't seen any spambot attempts the last few days (I had over 50 attempts the first two weeks) so I wonder if they are re-grouping and coming with a new attack.

This is a great idea.
What about also putting some sort of javascript timer in the registration agreement that generates a phrase that says something like "Unless you are Evelyn Wood, you could not possibly have read that agreement in such a short time! Please go back and read the registration terms before proceeding further"

Thanks for the thanks and nominations.

Maybe I'll add more info to the webmasteremail if I have the time. Anyway, just a tip... If you get a lot of the same domains showing up, go to vB Options -> User Banning Options and add the email there, if you want an added layer of protection from users/bots coming from those domains, just in case this mod doesn't stop them.

If you want to edit the seconds after import, just go to the Plugin Manager and edit the Is Bot plugin located at the register_addmember_process hook. There's no need to reimport each time. As for JavaScript, the bots probably ignore it so it'd have no effect on them.

Well I hate to tell you but the vb options are BS... I have all the above email Addy's in there, 3 fold, before I installed your program and they got by. So far your mod seem to work the best.

I don't know what I've done without this mod. It seem as though they don't bother one of my sites anymore but now their attacking one of my other sites.....good thing I have this mod installed there as well.
