I recently got my account back after not playing for several years, and losing the account to a bot network, and upon coming back I was astounded by the number of mining bots I was seeing.

Entering my bank pin gave me an idea though - much like the old school random events, how about a random popup window with a generated number prompt that provides a certain amount of time for the player to respond before automatically sending a bot report? For instance, a popup window that prompts the player "Enter the numbers 1234" much like you would for entering your bank pin. Perhaps making it so that this prompt only appears after the player has been idle, or doing the same action for a long period of time. Another possible feature would be to interrupt the character from what they were doing (such as mining), until the prompt is completed.
