Topic: mail.ru members
I'm seeing a rather odd and somewhat disturbing trend during the past week. Just about every day I get one or two people register at my punBB board with a mail.ru email address. I have email confirmation on for registration, so the addresses must be valid. The user IP's trace (as far as I can tell) to Russia and China. Looking at my Apache logs I see each of these new members does exactly the same thing: (a) register, (b) visit the board's first forum, and (c) go away without viewing any posts -- not to be seen again. Are these 'sleepers', with some nafarious schemes up their sleeves? Or am I just paranoid
Anyone see a pattern like this before?
