FYI- I've had several suspicious registrations come in to our forum. The error log has shown numerous attempts that botscout has blocked in the last 2 days but some are getting through. The hint seems to be a birthdate of 2014 and a generic occupation filled in.

As I look at the new registrations here on this forum, I see them here as well.

Good thing is they haven't confirmed their email so the system might take care of this. I run a small forum and I had 6 new registrations in the last 24 hours. I'm lucky if I get 6 in one month. Definitely something new has surfaced in the bot world.
