If it has been "100% confirmed", how come I've not seen any reports from you in either the security tracker or the incident tracker giving the details which confirm it?

This topic is about a spam bot - I have seen nothing to suggest anything more than that, and if you believe that there is you should be submitting it to the appropriate places so that we can review it, not posting unfounded suggestions here.

Besides, if you need any real proof about this guy, I can get you proof from 300 users,
5 admins and the Hosting Company CEO. Proof enough?

Ok, thanks.

I guess the whole idea of a security tracker being posted at the Olympus Dev forum was kind of... confusing in a way.

Funtklakow has registered on my fiances forum, which had user email verification activated, AND also Visual confirmation. I noticed something strange in that the email verification had been changed to user, and the visual confirmation option appears to have been removed :|.

The other strange thing i noticed was that if this is a bot, then its very clever. Its somehow intelligent to change its board style from the site default to something else.

People, if you've had it register through your image confirmation, I highlysuggest you send logs/information to the Security Tracker rather than complaining about it here. That way, something can be done about it (if possible).

Best defence is:

1. Disallow the name "FuntKlakow"

2. Turn on Visual Confirmation

3. (optional) Turn on eMail Confirmation

And use an individual CAPTCHA, done. :)

For example, the "Advanced Visual Confirmation"-mod from amigalink:

Works perfect, create your own CAPTCHA style and no new bots in my board:

The user on phpBB.com doesn't fit with the descriptions of the others.

Most likely it's a human that's registered that one as a joke.
