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.

Do I need to do go to that site and do this SVN thing as well?

Also, what is Trac and is it something that goes with Bad Behavior?

Thanks ... add-on seems to be working very well so far and catches an incredible amount of intrusions on the front end, although it does block IE6 users.

Regards,
Doug

SVN is just a backup of the latest files.
Trac is a Project Tools for this addon.

You can add the issue with BB blocking IE6 here:

because i tested it?

use a search engine spider simulator this google one for example:

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

install the mod and search one of your pages it will return a 403, uninstall/disable the mod and it returns to normal,

anyone using google tools can also submit a sitemap and see the full list of urls returned as error pages

So... you used something that spoofs the User-Agent? http://whois.domaintools.com/66.115.160.58 is the IP that site sent, obviously not owned by Google - the script checks the IP as well.

As for sitemaps, just checked that as well - no problems here, Google was able to access them just fine.

my google sitemap is showing a list of errors on every page and adsense adverts are not displaying as the adsense spider can not access the page either,

if you have view spiders enabled on your forums you should notice that no spiders are showing after installing this

could possibly be a conflict with another mod, i'll do some checking

I have no such issue on my site. What settings do you use?
