  • security issue?

    I have the latest version installed on my forum, but I notice various spam getting through from .ru and addresses, one in particular goes by the name of sagepower and I note that quite a few people have been visited, there is a another new post over at WHT on the issue.

    I have image verification enabled, any idea how they are registering, this sagepower is at far too many forums for it to be a real person.

    What type of image verification are you using? GD with TrueType and ImageMagick are currently secure agasit known bots, however any human can still read these and do the work.

      You should also ban those email domains. Please also see this thread:
