Default Didn't Marc Upgrade Security?


I still see atleast like 5 bots a day signing up with adverts in their signatures... I wonder what exactly he did? Haven't noticed one bit of difference lol EXCEPT they dont post as often... AS OFTEN.

There isnt even image verification, that would bea good start...

Ya I dunno. He said report 'em and he would take care of 'em.
So if u see a bot post, just report it as bot spam or something,

Actually there aren't any security issues.
The accounts get made by a human, the bots operate once the account has been set up. Can't prevent that, can only ban the user.

Marc's security is tight, trust me, I've been furiously testing it.

no use no matter what he owns the vBul and will just cancel it worst case.
alot of the bots are sutomated from the start now arent they? they just look for specific fields like signatur or "advertisements" and job, occupation etc. but yeah I guess alot of them are humans too atleast at first.
I think img. verification would help atleast a bit.
best of luck to ya dusty, hack that shit.

btw ive always been wondering what is that guy saying in ur avvy adn who is he? he loks like he means bzns

mah site has plenty of bots visit daily but none of them successfully make accounts uz we have image verification. he should try adding that but he wont. so its okey.
