This has been going on for two days and nights straight now. Someone is blasting our forum with logins and reads. I changed permissions to make it so that anonymous guests could not read and yet it has not stopped. Is this a person or is there something wrong with the software????????

Sounds like a search engine is indexing your forum, or someone trying to gain access to the forum by trying random user/password combinations.

So far I made changes so that all new memberships have to be approved by administrators and set the permissions so that anonymous guests cannot view or read the forum, yet this has continued all day long.

Whoever it is created a member named ANONYMOUS COWARD so it would look as though it was a guest. We banned that name, and did a BUST A PUNK on it and when that didn't work, we deleted that member.

But still it continues...it's into the second day straight of this, every few seconds.

If it is a search engine you can put robots.txt file in the forum's web root dir to block search engines from indexing the forums.

if this is a hacker trying to compromise someone's account, check your logs and ban their IP.

Edit:
Read your 2nd message just now.

The best way to handle this "user" is to deny them access via firewall or web server settings.

The logs are showing IP address changes every few hours....I've banned them when I see a new one but it doesn't stop the situation.

I'm not a programmer. What is the robots.txt file, where can I find it and how do I 'put it' into the root directory?

Thanks for your help.

Robots.txt file is intended to stop search engines only, it is very easy to write, requiring just 2 lines if you want totaly deny access to search engines.

There is a lot of good information about this file etc... here:

Anoymous Coward is the default anonymous username installed with the forum.

I get this type of traffic every month or so, and believe its a search engine crawling the forum. This was recently confirmed when I installed webalizer and after a few months noticed that an address from the MSN Search domain has a significant about of page hits.

Unless you have some sensitive material in your forums, having a search engine crawl your site is not a bad thing!
