I'm wondering about the settings and the "Minimum Threat Level".
In the logs I see that IP 126.96.36.199 was permitted to register in my SMF-forum - if I do an IP-lookuo here, I find it's a thread level of 35. My setting for the Mininum Threat Level is 25. Shouldn't be this visitor on the DENIED-list?
My honeypot itself works, I helped catch harvesters already and I entered a http:/BL code in the settings.
The help-section to the Minumum Threat Level isn't really helping: "Threat Scores are a rough guide to determine the threat a particular IP address may pose to your site. Threat Scores should be treated as a rough measure. Threat Scores range from 0-255, however they follow a logrithmic scale which makes it extremely unlikely that a threat score over 200 will ever be seen."
Can anyone explain why the spammer was permitted with the level of 35?
