What is the AntiBot Minimum Score option and how does it work?
The Antibot Minimum Score option is a part of the AntiBot Detection Engine. You can use it to set the antibot minimum score (percentage):
AntiBot detection scoring improvements
- Improved Bot Scoring Logic
We’ve adjusted a lot of scoring logic to help ensure legitimate users don’t get flagged as bots.
We’ve also improved the NotBot system’s ability to pick-up on past user sessions, which help improve NotBot scores for administrators.
- No More Cookies
Shield would drop a cookie to assist in tracking which clients had completed the NotBot tests. With a bit of code restructuring, we no longer need to use these cookies
- Faster NotBot Execution
With it being in the footer, there were instances where an admin would try login but the NotBot hadn’t executed in-time, causing the admin to appear to be a bot.
To address this, we’ve put the NotBot AJAX in the <head> section and it executes immediately.
- Better Bot Score Reset
Sometimes it was necessary to reset a bot score through the Shield interface. Previously, when you reset the score it would immediately look to the Block List and pick-up negative signals for the IP and you’d be back to square 1. Not any longer – when you reset the bot score, it’ll also remove the IP from the Block List if it’s there.
Note: You can use the IP Management and Analyse tool to see all information pertaining to an IP address in 1 place. Here, you can also reset Bot score for that IP address.
