spam eggs bacon and spam?
« on: December 10, 2011, 12:56:43 pm »


With this MOD you can Block the Registry of Spammers in your Forum.

When registering a user, it will compare their data (nickname, IP and mail) with the
"Stop Forum Spam" DB. If it match any data, then the user is leaved inactive 'Waiting for Approval'.
Admin > Members > Awaiting Approval

You can leave the 'Inmediate Registration' enabled for all users (so you don't disturb them),
but if a Spammer is detected it will apply 'Register Approval' automatically.

Also you can check all data of many members (already registred) automatically with
a simple click, selecting them in the list...
Admin > Members > View All Members

And report new Spammers and increase the DB, with a simple click.

It keeps a record of the number of all Spammers Blocked to date,
you can enable and disable this MOD and more

Thanks to 'Stop Forum Spam' for your DB and APIs.

something to help... maybe?

Got that already - stopping approx. 100 users per day, 37884 Spammers blocked up until today in total as of right now.
That won't help with spammers posting as guests in those sectios that are open for them.

We also got a mod that only allows the posting of links to registered members with more than 3 posts (number is adjustable).

Besides that every guest post requires verification bty captcha.

we also got a banlist for spammers IP's with hits  in the hundreds per day.

Anymore ideas?

Update 3:

So I’ve figured out how spam bots have been getting in, and I haven’t had a single new spam bot in 2 days after changing a single character in Register.php.  Near the bottom of the Register() function, it generates the code to appear in the captcha and saves it in the session data on the server.  If you have it generate ANYthing different from what it would by default, the spam bots can’t get in.  You could do this by switching the order of characters in $character_range, adding/removing characters in it, making the captcha a different length, or any combination thereof, plus some other stuff if you really wanted.  Piece of cake, but again, I’d like a plugin to do this automatically.

--edit; afterthought--

i noticed the spam posts have an icon of a cellphone next to them... does the 'wap2' mode have a captcha? or does it even allow guest posts?

I had a feeling the cellphone image was added to already reported posts? maybe I'm wrong  :)
