T50 wrote:First let me just say this, this mod DOES NOT make bots visit your forum, this mod onlys adds about 100 bots to your current list of bots, so if they visit your forum they will get the proper permissions.

with that said, now for your questions, generally bots index your site, and some other things bots do,
they are good to have installed if your getting a bunch of bot like visits, this mod is to help those that don't have time to track down alot of bots to add individually in the ACP, some boards want guests to be able to see certain parts of their forum that they don't wants bots to be able to and vice-versa if the bot isn't added to your bot list it will be a guest and will give them the wrong permissions

I was hoping T50 would make the changes but since it's been a couple of months since I posted the fix, I thought it would be helpful to just let people download it from me. That's the joy of open source. ;)

oh the joys of working.. haven't been on here at all for the past few months. and now with no more work(until anotehr job comes, better be soon) I guess I'll pick up the work on this old mod...

hmm I guess i deleted the notif for the reply long ago, since i haven't gotten any notifs for a long time about this.

Hope to get back to work on it soon. just need to dust off the old stuff and get cracking on it

****EDIT*****
Seems like my computer crashed since the last time I worked on this mod, and my files are gone.

I'll have to redo my files and relearn what is all going on here. oh the joys of restores.. should just have to redownload a few "hidden" sources of some newer and current versions on this mod and merge in the fixes you all have been so graciously supplied me with.

Hi...

couple of days before someone has posted a subject in my forum in the section that restricted to the moderators only he/she said can even close the forum down, and i tried to find out which hole has used to intrude it.. i find the only way possible is the boot agent as i allowed them to surf all the forum....
my question is can the bot agent be used by the hackers ? knowing that the version of my forum is 3.0.5

Thanks for the help

Bots shouldn't have write permissions to any of your forums.

This sounds like it should probably be reported to the phpBB Security Tracker. They can probably investigate and advise on any security holes you may have.
