    Thanks.  Seems like just harmless nuisances.

    Does anyone know what these  in complete registrations by bots are designed to accomplish?  They all have non-existent email addresses and don't get validated.  Is there any possible malware intent?

    Interesting and good to know, Aiwa.

    Right.  Just wondering what the heck the point of the exercise was.  Maybe just a kid fooling around.

    That is his ID, not mine.  Mine is a low number.
     
    I can see that if he got my email address and a random password, he could go somewhere and register as me?  I don't know what the consequences of that would be.

    Since IPB seems to reliably catch the Failed Admin Logins, I resist adding safeguards...
     
    And yes, a lost password email was also sent. Purpose is clearer now.  Fortunately I didn't click the link in that.  But what would have happened if I did? 
     
     
     
    4.  I've now changed 7 days to 1 day.
    5.  It was already set to 'Email random password'.

    pereba,
    This email has been sent from http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php

    Thanks AndyF!  You are always helpful!  I'm glad the requirement hasn't changed.
     
    I edited the member profile to remove my email address from it so I can't do your test.  However it looked right - colymoore - which doesn't lend itself to extra pixels.
     
    Still curious how he did it.  Genuine forum mail, all header content exactly as expected except that the mail greets pereba instead of me
       
    How did he get that to come to my gmail Inbox??
  9. cnmoore added a post in a topic: New members registering with my email address?   

    This had nothing to do with my account.  Pareba just stole my email address for his account.  This would identify him as me at sites that use email as login name but I can't think of anything else it would accomplish for him, since IPB no longer has send email from the board as an option in member profiles.
     
    I really just wanted reassurance that IPB still requires a unique email address during registration.
  10. cnmoore added a post in a topic: New members registering with my email address?   

    It was just one member, who evidently spoofed one of our validation emails.  If I had clicked the link in it, he would have validated a change of his email address to mine.  This same member tried to log in to ACP.
  11. cnmoore added a post in a topic: New members registering with my email address?   

    Suddenly several members have registered using my email address.  I though the software prevented  people using an email address that was already in use.  Has this been changed?
     
    (Naturally their validation fails since the validation email comes to me.)
  12. cnmoore added a post in a topic: How to not include post text in notifications?   

    There used to be an option to include post content in the notifications of new topics or replies.  I can't find the setting in 3.4.  I want to not include the content.
     
    The trouble with including the text is that people post asking for help with malware, and the posted log  often contains obvious malware or evil links.  This can cause Google to block the mail.
  13. cnmoore added a post in a topic: Display spaces?   

    For spaces at the beginning of a line, the INDENT works well.
  14. cnmoore added a post in a topic: Does upgrade involve FTP from Invision?   

    That was it, Aiwa.  I'd forgotten I have it on file.  Thanks! 
  15. cnmoore added a record in IP.Board   

    Upgrade shouldn't overwrite favicon
    I think when IPB is upgraded, as from 3.4.5 to 3.4.6,  the favicon should be preserved and not overwritten.  In other words, the upgrade package shouldn't include the /favicon.ico and the /admin/favicon.ico.
     
    I have come to expect the overwrite and just upload our saved favicon after the installation so this is not at all a big deal.  Also I could avoid uploading  the one from the package if I remembered.
     
    But it is a minor nuisance and it does seem illogical to  have the favicon in the upgrade.
