Removed the spam for advertising this morning, the odd one gets through the anti spam set up, the members list are names that are joined via a spammer software programe but thankfully they are unable to post.....

Graham needs to tweak the software a little more..

Hehe, not half!

I actually removed several hundred spam registrations last weekend, looks like there are some more to do!

The problem, for those interested, is that the non-standard CAPTCHA (the random letters and numbers you have to type in when you register) I installed on the forum, which has actually served us really well since January 2007, has now been defeated by the most popular forum spamming software. Fortunately, the secondary defences in place mean that the majority of the spam registrations are unable to post.

There are a number of potential solutions and ideas which I can't go into now - as soon as I have the time I'll explore some further modifications.

FACT OF THE DAY - The spam attempt log, which logs every prevented spam attack, is now up to 91 pages, each page having 200 distinct entries. I make that about 18,000 prevented attacks! Shocked



Cheers all,

Graham
