Unknown users connect to the server all the time and leave immediately

Unknown users connect to the server all the time and leave immediately. I think it’s bots, what can you do about it?

Original excerpt from the TS chat:
<20:35:07> “Unknown” loggte sich in Channel “[cspacer]⬥ E I N G A N G S H A L L E ⬥” ein
<20:35:07> “Unknown1” loggte sich in Channel “[cspacer]⬥ E I N G A N G S H A L L E ⬥” ein
<20:35:07> “Unknown2” loggte sich in Channel “[cspacer]⬥ E I N G A N G S H A L L E ⬥” ein
<20:35:07> Die Verbindung von “Unknown1” wurde unterbrochen (connection lost)
<20:35:07> Die Verbindung von “Unknown” wurde unterbrochen (connection lost)
<20:35:07> Die Verbindung von “Unknown2” wurde unterbrochen (connection lost)

Aren’t those query clients?

As you say, it’s probably bots mate.
Usually these are bots from sites like gametracker and ts3index just to check your server status and the online clients. This can’t harm your server at all. Only make your server more “popular” by listing it in different sites and people see it and join (in case your server is public).
Else if you want to disable it. you can remove tthe guest query login access from the Guest Query Group.
