    Bad Behavior

    Add to List

    Welcome to a whole new way of keeping your blog, forum, guestbook, wiki or
    content management system free of link spam. Bad Behavior is a PHP-based
    solution for blocking link spam and the robots which deliver it.

    Thousands of sites large and small, like SourceForge, GNOME, the U.S.
    Department of Education, and many more, trust Bad Behavior to help reduce
    incoming link spam and malicious activity.

    Bad Behavior complements other link spam solutions by acting as a gatekeeper,
    preventing spammers from ever delivering their junk, and in many cases, from
    ever reading your site in the first place. This keeps your site’s load down,
    makes your site logs cleaner, and can help prevent denial of service
    conditions caused by spammers.

    Bad Behavior also transcends other link spam solutions by working in a
    completely different, unique way. Instead of merely looking at the content of
    potential spam, Bad Behavior analyzes the delivery method as well as the
    software the spammer is using. In this way, Bad Behavior can stop spam attacks
    even when nobody has ever seen the particular spam before.

    Bad Behavior is designed to work alongside existing spam prevention services
    to increase their effectiveness and efficiency. Whenever possible, you should
    run it in combination with a more traditional spam prevention service.

    Bad Behavior works on, or can be adapted to, virtually any PHP-based Web
    software package. Bad Behavior is available natively for WordPress, MediaWiki,
    Drupal, ExpressionEngine, and LifeType, and people have successfully made it
    work with Movable Type, phpBB, and many other packages.

    Installing and configuring Bad Behavior on most platforms is simple and takes
    only a few minutes. In most cases, no configuration at all is needed. Simply
    turn it on and stop worrying about spam!

    The core of Bad Behavior is free software released under the GNU Lesser General
    Public License, version 3, or at your option, any later version.

    Release Notes

      settings. See the documentation for further details.

    • Bad Behavior is unable to protect internally cached pages on MediaWiki.
      Only form submissions will be protected.

    • When upgrading from version 2.0.19 or prior on MediaWiki and WordPress,

      warnings when Spam Karma 2 displays its internally generated CAPTCHA. This
      is a design problem in Spam Karma 2. Contact the author of Spam Karma 2 for
      a fix.
