  • Attacked!

    I had my first attack today. I deleted his account and blocked his ip address. I changed the post interval from 30 to 120 seconds as well. Is there anything else I can do?

    I mass pruned is 82 posts and deleted his account but he still shows up as the last person to have posted in a forum. Is there a way to remove the reference to him as the last poster? Thanks in advance.

      Ok, I thought I had done this one, but I guess I was wrong. Thanks a bunch.

      Are there any other ways to protect the board without resorting to moderating every post? Thanks.

        Is this the Porm script attack? The best way to combat this is to upgrade to 2.3.0.

          Really? It's happened to me yesterday, and I'm running 2.3.0 RC3.

            Are you running the new registration image option?

              Yep.

              UPDATE: So far, I've been lucky, the "porn link posters" have all had only one IP. It's been banned.

                Then you are the first person I've heard of that has this feature enabled and it didn't stop the Porm bot. What's the URL to your forums?

                  Don't worry about it. It's not happening anymore. BTW, this makes me fell stupid, but it turns out that I wasn't running the Image Verification system. I have turned it on now.

                    That would do it.

                        To answer your question, yes it is the porn bot and no I'm not running 2.3.0. I did find the post that deals with the porn bot so I feel a little bit better knowing it's not just me. I want to upgrade but I'm not sure I like the way the layout is. I have a LOT of older people on my forum who have a hard time figuring out 2.2.9. Will it change the layout of the board very much? I have a lot of modified templates. I might give it a try on my home system first. That’s where I test all of my changes first anyway. Thanks for the input.

                        You might want to check the Porn Bot thread again because there is a lot more than just one IP. Here is the link to the thread that is compiling the IP addresses and email address for these pesky little creeps.

                          Jake, the only visual change from 2.2.9 to 2.3.0 is the image verification system during registration.

                            oops, had my versions confused. I thought we were talking 3.0. Now I see it's still in beta.
