Bad Behavior 2.0.5

Make a Donation.

Bad Behavior 2.0.5 has been released to provide small bug fixes.

New in this release (since 2.0.4):

  • A bug affecting MediaWiki and ExpressionEngine users, and possibly others, caused database errors to be thrown when a POST request was received. This has been fixed. (I thought I’d fixed this previously, but apparently not. This one should fix it for real.)
  • A couple of additional spambots have been identified and blocked.
