    i have user registration off, but someone, or a bot, was able to register a username.

    Do you have any add-ons installed? Any that deal with registration or user accounts.

    Exact same thing just happened on my other site. Same username too.

    Yes, but not on my other site. On the-boneyard I have registration enabled, but each registration must be manually approved. This username got through, but was not manually approved.

    Are the Tapatalk files still in place perhaps?

    Open library library\XenForo\ControllerPublic\Register.php
    protected function _assertRegistrationActive()
    // bunch of code here
    Replace the last curly brace with
    Create new account via this url yourdomain.com/register. logout and login to ACP, there should be a error message logged. Send it to me via PM or post it here :)

    Tapatalk is still active here:

    As long as that PHP file is there, the Tapatalk app can use it to bypass Xenforo's registration as its API has direct access to your database.

    There will only be an error logged if debug mode is enabled, which is unlikely.
