Stop Spam -Part 2

Bad Behavior is a set of PHP scripts which prevents spambots from accessing your site by analyzing their actual HTTP requests and comparing them to profiles from known spambots. It goes far beyond User-Agent and Referer, however. Bad Behavior is available for several PHP-based software packages, and also can be integrated in seconds into any PHP script.

Download: bad-behavior-1.2.4.zip


Bad Behavior installs like any other multi-file WordPress plugin. Unzip the bad-behavior.zip file, and you will have a bad-behavior folder containing all the Bad Behavior files.

Before uploading, edit the bad-behavior/bad-behavior-wordpress.php file and customize the configuration variables there. When logging is on, all blocked requests will be logged. When verbose logging is on, all requests – successful or not – will be logged. And the logging duration specifies how many days worth of logs will be stored in the database. I recommend not using verbose logging without a really good reason, as your database will fill up fast.
