Incorrect online user count

Post by Badhon_raj » Sun Oct 28, 2018 3:14 am

After upgrading to latest phpBB v 3.2.3, it is showing huge number of users online (guests).
But I'm certain that there isn't that much visitor active.

What could cause this?
How can I go about finding/debugging the cause?

Please help.

We all get this from time to time when there is a bot attack on a phpBB board. Your server access logs should confirm this.
