Now, suddenly many threads were indexed at Google. Wow, what happened? Guests are not allowed to access the content, and all bots are "deactivated". And this is, as I mentioned, a private forum. And now it's all in Google.
If I open the indexed threads in Google Cache, you can clearly see, that the bot was logged in.
It says "Your last visit was ..." at the top, and it offers to show "New Posts" and "Own posts". And at "Who's online" it says: John Doe and 0 guests. Holy shit? John Doe is a registered user at this forum.
And this John Doe was online very often online in the last days/weeks, even at night - and even when the "real" John Doe was sleeping and his PC off. Now, I clicked at this account at "Who's online" (while the real John Doe was not logged in at his PC), and it says:
And if I click at "Whois":IP: 22.214.171.124 » Whois

Oh great, the Googlebot is using an users board account to index threads? Hello? How could this be possible?OrgName: Google Inc.

Now, I (admin) deactivated the account and changed the password, and the real John Doe logged in again (this time with Firefox, before with Google Chrome). It worked. He logged out again. And some minutes later, the "fake" John Doe (= googlebot?) came again. Wow, why could he still login? (session or something?) However, I cleared the forums cache, changed the password again - and then the bot was logged out (and he became a guest). I banned 184.108.40.206 at admin panel.
Now, maybe John Does PC is infected. But how could it be, that the googlebot (is this the real googlebot, btw?) uses his account to index our board?! I mean, if it would be some kind of spyware/trojan, okay, but how does it come to Googlebot?
Might this be a "function" (wow, what a feature ...?) of Google Chrome?
