      IIRC that is specific issues related to the language table going bad.


      Turn on image and email verification, also turn the time between post up to 30 or 60 seconds.

      This should cut down on your spam.

      Now also go and repair all of the vB Tables

      AdminCP > Import & Maitence > Repair / Optmize tables, check all, continue.

      Repeat untill all tables, except cpsession and session report back ok. (thoughs two tables do not support repair.

          I don't think this is a vB issue if they are attacking the mysqld... you should contact your host...

              Then your first steps will be to install a firewall if you already do not have one, I can suggest APF, and there is an exelent configuration guide for APF on www.webhostgear.com

              Then block the MySQL port for external connections.

                    APF Firewall is installed and port 3306 (Standard MySQL port) is not listed as an open port, therefore its blocked.

                    Also BFD, mod_security and log watch is installed as well as other measures.

                    So they must be getting in another way.
