I've used SMF for about 3 years now and I do prefer it over the other forums out there, the only downside is hearing about and experiencing the amount of spam/bots that the 1.1.11 SMF forums gets hit with. Currently I administrate two SMF boards and both were getting around 1 spam bot a day sign up, even with admin approval set up it becomes tiresome quickly. I have tried other mods like 'Are you Human?' and if I'm honest, it didn't make any difference to the levels of spam at all. It had progressed and gotten to the point where I had to banned the IPs for all the ISPs in 4 different countries via that .htaccess file!

I will admit I was a bit dubious about setting up this mod at first as I had only taken a quick glance at it while I was at work. I like many others were just looking for a quick fix and didn't really want to go through all the hassle of setting up accounts on sites and uploading files. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! After 12 hours of having it installed I have not had any spam accounts sign up and even seen that there have been 6 bots or suspicious IPs that have been denied access to the forums. Now that I have set it up once doing it for the other forum should be quick and simple. I am going to see how it runs for the next few days and if all is well, I might be able to unblock those 4 countries. (Russia, Germany, Korea & China .... Not that I expect any of them will visit my site... but you never know).

I don't normally write reviews and such but... thank you for this Mod, It has made my life easier! ;)

Thanks for your kind words Kakers.

As I also administer a few forums and had the same problems with spam (that's the reason why I did this mod in the first place) I'm going to give you a couple of advises:

If you are installing the mod in a few different forums, you can use the same API key for all of them, so you don't need to register another account with "Project Honey Pot", but the mod works a little faster if the honey pot is installed in the same domain as the forum, so it's better if you install a different honey pot inside each forum. It's just a little more work, but it's worth the hassle.

I will recommend you as well to install in every forum my other mod StopSpammer:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1547

Both mods are complementary and you will see a big difference when using both at the same time.

Each one uses a different database to see if they are spammers and uses a completely different method to check it.

Also mod StopSpammer is a lot easier to install than mod httpBL  ;D

Thanks for the advice, I will also try that mod.

I currently have the honeypot sat in the root '/' of my html directory where our wordpress blog sits. (I have now installed Bad Behaviour on our WP blog to use the honey pot!)  ;D The SMF forums are in a sub-directory '/forums/' The site normally gets about 6k hits a day, 1k unqiue hits. The forums get visited less then that however and having installed the WP and SMF mods I haven't noticed any decrease in speed. For this site I own the domain name but not the hosting.

The other forums are hosted on my domain/hosting so I will be creating a seperate hot pot for that one which will sit in the '/forums/' directory purely because the main page is html  ::)

Something strange. I was contacted by a member who is blocked by httpBL. But his IP is not in the projecthonepot database. In my logs I can see his IP with S - Low Threat.
I chek and found others IP in the same configuration, blocked but not referenced on the database.

It looks like an error somewhere.

Can you tell me one of the IPs and all the info you can see in your log about it (including the "extra info")?

I would like to investigate the issue.

I don't really know how the web site in "Project Honey Pot" works. All I know is what I have read on their site and what I have seen while using their API to create this mod, so most of what I am going to tell you here is just guessing, but anyway I think it's a good guess.

As far as I know, the database with all the spammers information (the database used by the mod to check if an IP is spammer) is a dynamic one, changing every hour with all the information received from all the Honey Pots around the world. It's also a very big database and it has a lot of information. Not only about "Harvesters" and "Comment Spammers" but also about a lot of other "Suspicious" behaviours which the program cannot identify just now.

If you read their API manual: http://www.projecthoneypot.org/httpbl_api.php you can see they are working on it and in they have reserved some other values of the response from the database for future use, but I think they will identify only really dangerous behaviour and will leave as just "Suspicious" any kind of behaviour not too dangerous.

As I said this database is dynamic. All the process is fully automatic and it's hosted in a few mirror servers, so it's always on-line. (At least I have never seen this database off-line in the last 2 years).

As you can see, when the mod checked the IP 84.97.153.127 inside this database it got the response 127.29.3.1

The first number (127) just means that the response is correct.

The next number (29) is the number of days since this IP was last seen doing something wrong.

The next number (3) is the threat level of this IP. A very low number really. In Honey Pot's site they say a few times any IP with a threat level less than 10 is not really dangerous at all.

The last number (1) means this IP has not been seen doing "Harvesting" or "Commenting" work yet, and it's only "Suspicious".

You can also see that when, whoever was trying to see your site from this IP, was redirected to your "warning" page didn't give any answers to the captcha questions.

That means that either it was a trojan robot working inside the computer with that IP (one who doesn't know how to answer captcha questions) or it was a human who was very scared when he read he may have a virus and just closed the web page because he didn't know what else he should do.



On the other hand, when you check an IP inside Honey Pot's site you are using a completely different database. You are using the database which keeps Honey Pot's web site on.

This is not a fully automatic database and the information it has is very different from the first database. It doesn't get all the input automatically from the Honey Pots around the world, but also from comments the site users leave about different IPs.

Some things anyway come from the Honey Pots automatically. Mainly the actions done by "Harvesters", "Comment Spammers", etc, but here it has different information than the first database. Instead of just "numbers" about how many times an IP did something wrong, how many days ago, etc it has "text" information. For example from a "Comment Spammer" it tells you what kind of posts it writes in the forums, what links to malicious sites, etc

But a big difference is that this database only has "Proven facts", not just "Suspicious actions", so when you check the IP 84.97.153.127 here and you get nothing, it means that IP has been doing only something suspicious, but nothing really dangerous that can prove it is a spammer.

That is why it has only a 3 in the threat level.



As I said at the beginning all this is only guessing. It would be better if we ask this question in their own forum:

http://www.projecthoneypot.org/board/

The problem is that forum has very few movement. I have asked a few questions myself there and only a couple of them have been answered.

Ok, I understand. It's frustrating for me not to speak better English to respond.

You can also see that when, whoever was trying to see your site from this IP, was redirected to your "warning" page didn't give any answers to the captcha questions.

I have an explanation:

In my sign you can see the link to "Cine-Passion". A free service that I host and used by different media center solutions. (thousands users every days)  So these are the machines and programs that connect to this service, this explains why there are no answers to the captcha.

It is a real problem for me to continue to use httpBL.
In fact I've never had problems with spam. I installed several anti-spam mods and although my sections are mostly accessible to guests in more than two years, only one spammer has managed to post spam, Xrumor the famous, and he could not save links in the message.

I also installed StopSpammer just before httpBL. I scanned my base member, only one spamer was registered, the email address left no doubt he is a spammer.
To conclude, I installed httpBL because I found it's a very great system, beautiful, but because of the nature the service that my site offers, I do not think I can continue to use it.

I hope you anderstand my answer :)

Don't worry about your English. I understand you very well.  ;)

So, your problem is a lot of your visitors are robots coming from different media centre solutions, but these robots are not spammers.

Well, the httpBL system normally recognizes this kind of robots and let them pass.

The problem is they haven't got inside their database all the "legal" robots in the world. Only the more important ones.

At least, the robots from the main software companies (Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, etc) are always recognized, because the owners of these robots have told everybody about them so we know what they do and how to recognize them.

But if a robot is not recognized (because it's not in the database) it will always get a very low threat level (less than 10) if it's not doing something really bad.

For example, as you can see, this 2 you got only have a threat level of 3.

I can assure you, if an IP get a threat level of 40 or more, it is for sure a very dangerous spammer. Remember the threat level is not a linear scale, but a logarithmic one.

What I think you should do is to check your logs to see what is the threat level of all the IPs stopped by the mod with only "Suspicious" on, with no "Harvesters" or "Comment Spammers", and change your configuration to let pass all this robots and stop only the really dangerous.

A good configuration (good for almost everybody) will be to put the "Threat level considered bad" up to 10 and the "Threat level considered VERY bad" to 30.

This way everybody with a threat level less than 10 will pass.
With a treat level between 10 and 30 will see the captcha.
More than 30 will be stopped.

But as I say, it's up to you to see your logs to decide the best numbers for your site.

These numbers cannot be always the same for every web site. That's the reason why I put in the last version all this log system and all these different numbers in the configuration that were not there in earlier versions.

But yes, it is the solution !

I looked at my logs and only one service user has a score of 14 is the maximum. I can see its user agent and its activity that tell me that it's software.


( We ask the developers that their software return a user agent with requests )

All others have a score between 3 and 4
So here, I just have to adjust accordingly.
Again merci Monsieur.   :)

I should have talked about this already inside the tutorial, so anybody trying to translate this mod will have it a little easier, but it seems I never find the right time to do it.

OK, I will try to give a quick explanation here and I will put it more clear in the tutorial whenever I can:

To translate this mod completely there are actually 2 different things which need to be translated:

  • The sentences inside the mod's configuration (which only admins can see)
  • The sentences inside the warning page (which everybody with a bad IP will see)

What you (Saint_Frater) have translated just now is the first part. The sentences inside the /Themes/default/languages/Modifications.whatever_language_it_is.php which control all the sentences inside the "Admin" => "MOD httpBL" => "Configuration", "Logs", etc.

As I said, only admins can see this, so it will help any French admin who want to configurate properly this mod but doesn't speak good english, and no, it wasn't translated yet to French, so thanks a lot for the contribution.

The second part, the sentences inside the warning page, had already been translated to French by shaitanfr (see here: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=366399.msg2690621#msg2690621 ) so actually French is the first language this mod has been fully translated already.

Thanks again to both of you (shaitanfr and Saint_Frater).

Keep the good work.  ;)

I have a member who wants to login to our forum from work at Yankee Stadium but HoneyPot keeps blocking him.  He can login from from home.  I've read through everything I can find and went to PHP site and tried to find info there about how I can wither whitelist his work IP on there or just for my website but I can't find the answer.  The IP address is:  12.71.69.114

How do I "white list" him?

Hey,

First off, great mod.  Blocked a couple of spammers already.  but i have a problem with the warning page.  This shows up at the top of the warning page when viewed

Code: [Select]
array( 'tag' => 'random', 'type' => 'unparsed_content', 'content' => '$1', 'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', ' $data = strtr($data, array(\'
\' => \'\')); $data = random_bbcode($data); '), ), array( 'tag' => 'random', 'type' => 'unparsed_equals_content', 'content' => '$1', 'disallow_children' => array('email', 'ftp', 'url', 'iurl'), 'disabled_after' => ' ($1)', 'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', ' $data[1] = strtr($data[1], array(\'
\' => \'\')); $data[0] = random_bbcode($data); '), ),

How can i fix this?

Hi Trishah,

To white list an IP you need to log into http://www.projecthoneypot.org with your username there and tell them.

Unfortunately, they don't have an automated button to do that (unless you are logging exactly from the same IP you want to white-list) so you will have to enter their "contact us" section http://www.projecthoneypot.org/contact_us.php and send them an email explaining the situation.

Normally, every time I need to send them an email, they answer me pretty soon.

Anyway, if you check exactly why this IP is black listed (see here: http://www.projecthoneypot.org/ip_12.71.69.114 ) you will see that somebody has been sending emails selling viagra from that IP, so if this is the address of your friend's work, I will suggest it would be better to inform the guy in charge of computer security there.

I suppose, if that's the IP of Yankee Stadium, they must have somebody responsible for computer security.

It looks like either one of the computers inside the stadium is infected with a trojan sending that emails or one of the workers is using one of the computers to make some extra money.

Hi mjmfighter,

There is nothing inside the warning page I did with any connexion with that array there.

Have you modified the original warning page somehow?

What version of SMF and what version of the mod are you using?

Can you give me a link to your warning page so I can look at it myself?

here is the link to my warning page http://cnkgaming.com/site/warning.php

I think I have found the problem.

When I tried to see your warning page I saw the error message you said, but you didn't gave me the full message.

Apart from those lines about arrays you were talking about, there is another line more, with the real error message:

Code: [Select]
<b>Notice</b>:  SSI.php was unable to load a session!
This may cause problems with logout and other functions - please make sure SSI.php is included before
*anything* else in all your scripts! in
<b>/usr/www/*****/public/site/SSI.php</b> on line <b>172</b>

This means your warning page cannot work properly because it cannot find the file SSI.php or because you have a SSI file corrupted.

The file SSI.php is an important part of SMF and it has to be always in the same folder as the index.php of your forum (in your case the folder /usr/www/*****/public/site/ ) and without this file this mod is not going to work properly.

Please make sure you uploaded to your server that file to the proper folder when you were installing SMF. If you didn't (or just in case you uploaded a corrupted one) take a fresh copy of SMF 2.0 RC3 from here: http://download.simplemachines.org/

You will find inside the file SSI.php you need and you will be able to check if you have any other important files missing.

After you do that, check if you can see now your warning page properly and if the mod is working and tell us.

You can check if the mod is working just activating it, waiting a few hours and checking the mod logs. Depending on how many visitors you have, in some forums the mod stop one spammer every 24 hours, but in most forums the mod normally stop one spammer every hour or even every few minutes.
