    XRumer can not currently bypass our captcha if you set it to true type / GD (not simple fonts) and enable random slant. Enable random shapes or, better yet, upload your own fonts and it has 0% success.

    I know this because I've tested it, I've logged what it guesses and compared it to the actual answer.

    No. As soon as you add it by default the spammers will crack it.

    Although Xrumer claims to be able to get around vBulletin forums that is only partly true in that it is limited to older outdated versions of vBulletin. As of yet on the many vBulletin boards im a member on and/or staff on I havnt seen many spam registrations and when I have its usually human registrations or a lot of human interaction which for most spammers just isnt viable and useful for spamming in that it takes too much of their time. Immagine having to register on say 100 (fictional number that has no relevence to the ACTUAL number of vBulletin forums) forums yourself, at about 2 mins per registration, another 1-5 mins if email activation is also required and then another 1-2 mins to post Thats 15 hours just for 100 forums. Would you then want to spend that ammount of time just to spam 100 forums?

    You can already do that without an add-on:

    The NoSpam! plugin should be integrated to Vbulletin, where the admin can put a question such: 3+3 equals ? and the user types in the answer, since we put that on our boards, no more spam.

    Captcha is not a solution anymore.

    Xrumer is like 2 years old. And it has not cracked vBulletin 3.6's advanced Captcha.

    I never heard of this before, but it sure looks tailor-made for spamming.

    From their website at botmaster,net:

    "# Exclusive feature! Automatic account registration on cashette,com has been added (besides autoregistration on mail.ru) "

    Better spam control?

    Hi I heard of a new virus called Xrumer that targets forums.

    Its designed to bypass security measures like captchas and stuff.

    It can publish comments on sites created by phpBB, PHP-Nuke (with
    some modification), yaBB, VBulletin, Invision Power Board, IconBoard,
    UltimateBB, exBB, and phorum.org.

    Is this possible? Can it really bypass vbulletin spam control? If it can will spam control be updated in version 3.7?
