Michael Hampton has been busy updating Bad Behavior, blocking new spambots and fixing the occasional false positive. Since the Geeklog version of Bad Behavior was a few revisions behind, I've made a new package to update the Geeklog plugin to the latest version 2.0.23.

You can download Bad Behavior 2.0.23 for Geeklog from the download area. For the release notes, please see the Bad Behavior homepage.

  • Authored by:Dirk on Thursday, June 11 2009 @ 03:24 AM EDT

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.28.

Btw, one of the changes in this release was: A particularly nasty trackback spammer advertising various drugs has been blocked in this release.

I'd like to point out that Geeklog's built-in spam check for Trackbacks already took care of this particular spam. BB2 will only block it a bit earlier now.

On the Geeklog side of things, this update now also adds proper support for the new search in Geeklog 1.6.x (but continues to work with older versions).

  • Bad Behavior 2.0.34
  • Authored by:Dirk on Sunday, December 06 2009 @ 01:33 PM EST

  • Authored by:Dirk on Monday, December 21 2009 @ 02:22 PM EST

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.36.

This version is labelled a security release, but from what I understand, the security issue only affects the WordPress binding, not the Geeklog plugin. Also, the 2.1.x versions mentioned in the article are development versions and not intended for general use.

  • Authored by:Dirk on Thursday, January 06 2011 @ 10:08 AM EST

This update also fixes a Geeklog-specific SQL error in the search (only affected users in the Bad Behavior2 Admin group).

  • Bad Behavior 2.0.40
  • Authored by:Dirk on Tuesday, January 25 2011 @ 01:52 PM EST

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.40.

This release is considered a security update for Bad Behavior (details on Michael's site), so upgrading is strongly recommended!

  • Bad Behavior 2.0.41
  • Authored by:Dirk on Friday, January 28 2011 @ 02:26 PM EST

And here's the next update already: The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.41.

  • Bad Behavior 2.0.43
  • Authored by:Dirk on Monday, April 25 2011 @ 06:37 AM EDT

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.43.

  • Google Rich Snippets Testing Tool blocked
  • Authored by:Dirk on Sunday, July 24 2011 @ 03:28 AM EDT

I was playing around with Google's Rich Snippets Testing Tool and was getting frustrated with it always reporting an "empty page". Until I realized that it was being blocked by Bad Behavior. Looks like the requests for this tool come from an IP address range that Bad Behavior does not know about yet.

I've reported this to Michael Hampton. In the meantime, here's a patch if you need it.

  • Bad Behavior 2

This is being blocked again with the latest BB2 plugin.
  • Bad Behavior 2
  • Authored by:Laugh on Friday, April 19 2013 @ 09:46 AM EDT
It looks like BB2 is blocking some msn bots. I did a few checks on one I noticed and the reason BB2 said it blocked it was "User-Agent claimed to be msnbot, claim appears to be false ".

When I checked the IP it is registered with Microsoft though.
  • Bad Behavior 2.0.46
  • Authored by:Dirk on Sunday, May 06 2012 @ 04:35 AM EDT

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.46.

  • Bad Behavior 2.0.49
  • Authored by:Dirk on Saturday, December 22 2012 @ 04:42 AM EST

The archive has been updated to Bad Behavior 2.0.49. There was only one very small change since 2.0.46 - all the others changes only affected the Wordpress plugin.

Note: Support for Bad Behavior 2.0 ends June 30, 2013. There is a new version 2.2 out, but I haven't had the time to look into porting it to Geeklog yet. If anyone else wants to tackle this, feel free ...
