Topic: Registration spamming? (Read 1334 times)
July 23, 2004, 02:01:54 am »
Someone has recently tried (on two occasions) to register 20-45 new user accounts at the same time. If I hadn't noticed the activity on the mail server they'd probably have succeeded. I've taken a few new security steps to try and prevent this from happening in the future, but I'm left to wonder: why? What could they have hoped to achieve, especially with a forum that lets unregistered members post?

Hmm, I registered my name 3 times lol ^_^ because I kept f.ucking up the registration

Maybe they were automated regs?

Well it was certainly automated, but why?
Unconfirmed regs are turfed after a few hours, so if you don't get your email and sign up, you won't be clogging up the system with half-done apps, no worries.
