Hi there,

Not too sure if anyone alert this besides the bot user registration, I have found in my website log that someone try to get access to the Edit User module via /?pageno=3&ctl=profile&userId=
















UserAgent:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

DefaultDataProvider:DotNetNuke.Data.SqlDataProvider, DotNetNuke


InnerException:Input string was not in a correct format.







DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.ModuleLoadException: Input string was not in a correct format. ---> System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.
   at System.Number.StringToNumber(String str, NumberStyles options, NumberBuffer& number, NumberFormatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal)
   at System.Number.ParseInt32(String s, NumberStyles style, NumberFormatInfo info)
   at DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules.UserModuleBase.get_UserId()
   at DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules.UserModuleBase.get_User()
   at DotNetNuke.Modules.Admin.Users.EditUser.BindData()
   at DotNetNuke.Modules.Admin.Users.EditUser.OnLoad(EventArgs e)
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---


Although no user settings have been modified at the moment I just wonder if it is a bug or something that we can fix as it keeps logging this error into the event log?


Many Thanks

I would imagine this is just another bot trying to find holes in DNN based websites. I haven't seen that path myself, but I Haven't gone through most of my event logs lately.

this is not calling edit profile but display profile - maybe to check for options to spam

I have the exact same problem as Tomoyo.
Does anyone found a solution?

We were hit last night with a bunch of the same postings. You might be able to put something into your firewall to help block the post.  We had around 650 in a few hours.
