Admin Adds Content, Cracker Tracker security blocks action

Recently I started a new forum with Integramod 150. Most things work perfect, but at the moment I am being blocked as the admin by the cracker tracker security .script.

I try to change some banners (Styles admin > Banner), but at that moment the security .script blocks me (admin) to do this. I noticed the same thing when changing some forums.
If I change some forum with Forum Admin > Management + > Change de.scription.. Then the same thing happens...

Is there a setting to lower the way cracker tracker respons to my actions?
Or did I do something else wrong?

Thanks for all help!

here is a Knowledge Base article on how to customize CrackerTracker ... ticle&k=22

this thread may also be of assistance ... kertracker

If you follow the Ctracker edit instructions and still get blocked for the same function, change 'MEDIUM' to 'LOW'
I know it is kind of a pain to work with CTracker, but forums without it have a MUCH higher record of being hacked.

If your doing the initial setup for you forum and you dont want to go through the setup of all your files, you can disable it temporarily.
OPEN forum root/common.php
Code: Select all
include($phpbb_root_path . 'ctracker/engines/ct_security.' . $phpEx);

Code: Select all
// include($phpbb_root_path . 'ctracker/engines/ct_security.' . $phpEx);

be sure to remove the comments "//" from the beginning of the line after your site is setup to minimize the chance of ".script kiddies" ruining your site

glad you got it solved. .script kiddies are usually kids who want to hack somebody else's website but they dont know how to do it, so they download a hacking .script that was written by a real hacker and use it against you. Ctracker blocks most of these type of .scripts, bans the ip address of the person using them, and notifies you that they tried.
