  • [Forum] Under attack of spambots

    Hello

    My forum littlebignetwork.com has been lately under attack of spambots with signature links.

    I have read the thread about spam, and i have recaptcha and Q&A working on my forum. Still i get like 200 bots a day!! I did not have this problem 1 month ago, it just started out of nowhere..

    Need really urgently help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Choose another Q&A and watch at vb.org for spam protection addons.

        there are addons in vb.org that stop new user "with zero posts" from adding links to there "post / signature" ..
        i think this is the best solution... for now!

          And still accepting hundreds of spam registrations? That's not a real solution.

          Any feedback from vB?

            Then you haven't done it right!
            Search on vb.org for "stopforumspam", this hack alone prevents on 4 sites I own spam bot registrations. Additional there's an addon sending registrations from specific countries into moderation queue. Only thing you have to do is doing it by yourself. There are a lot of addons available.
            An official answer will be "use Q&A".
            And b.t.w. if you add the word "spam" into the search box above you'll get thousands of similar threads with thousand (un)official replies how to prevent your site from being spammed.
