Double links appear in the logs
« on: November 08, 2019, 02:41:11 PM »
Hi,

I noticed in the logs that a double link appears. A double link appears in the logs of the banned user and in the logs from Tapatalk. It looks like a mistake.

This has been seen before as a Tapatalk bug.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

yup....    tapatalk bypasses standard SMF stuff and uses their own -- this is bad because 1- several times, we have made security patches that never made it into Tapatalk and 2- they force the double load of some functions which would be better served by using SMF's standard, internal functions.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

I understand, I will report this issue to Tapatalk. And what about displaying a double link in the log from banned users? This double link is not from Tapatalk.

It's not 'displaying a double link', that's the link the user actually used. Some bad bots can't get this fairly simple concept correct.

Some spambots have been banned in the forum, so it's these spambots enter the wrong address, right?

Yes. But it can also happen with Tapatalk.
