An explanation for the problem:

All users should update to Bad Behavior 2.0.11 immediately to prevent being blocked from your own site.

Within the past two days users have found themselves blocked from their own sites while using recent versions of Bad Behavior. A third party blacklist which Bad Behavior queries recently began sending false positives for any IP address queried, causing everyone using Bad Behavior to be blocked. This issue is fixed in Bad Behavior 2.0.11.

Download Bad Behavior 2.0.11 now!

P.S. Yes, Bad Behavior is still in development. More news coming soon.

Update: Some people have asked for more details on what exactly happened. In brief, yesterday I moved all of my sites to a new dedicated server. In the process, I decommissioned an old blacklist I was running which I thought wasn’t being used, not realizing that Bad Behavior was still set to use it. Shortly afterward, I found myself locked out of my own blog, just as you all did. So therefore, this release.

Nothing to see here, move along….

…I’m still retired, you know. 😉

    OH, darn. I wrote a scintillating response to a post in Unthreaded #26 yesterday which bounced. You expect me to remember what I wrote? Ha!

    Never, ever, be bleeding edge just a little behind. Who would notice 24 hrs or a week later.

    Oh wait 1 week 5537 spams, yikes!

    As a good friend of mine stated after retiring. “I don’t know where I found the time to go to work !!!”
