Automated forum registrations?
I just noticed that my newly installed BBpress board has now around 20 members (launched it around 2 weeks ago). Of these 20 only 4 have posted a message. Moreover, when looking at my logs showing real traffic I do not see evidence of so many registrations (my logs show real traffic only). Also, some of these new users have provided a spammy website URL (porn, gaming etc).
My question: can some of these new users be automated bots that somehow exploit the register form? If so what shoud I do/expect? How would they want to harm my website?
