Spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam!
Kazuya_UK
I have been doing a bit of a clearout of the spam that has been left on the site, in particular the stuff that's been posted in the comments section. All the viagra ads and WoW gold stuff has been deleted, it took me a while but it should all be gone now. Please let me know here if you spot anything more... I'm trying to stop this from happening, a lot of it is from bots and it's really annoying as there's something that is stopping me deleting the accounts that are posting it.

Currently looking for a way to stop it. As for forum posts, I know we have had spammers here too and the mods have cleared some of that out... thanks guys! I'll be trying to keep an eye on it too, I really want to stop the site getting clogged up with it again! It should be safe to click the "latest comments" link now! LOL I might remove that and replace it with something else though, as the script that it uses seems to be a bit buggy.

Thanks for clearing that out, now about the "Bot" users on site, but nevermind about that, anyway, I'll check around for more "Bots" in and out, and contact when necessary, at least things are a bit situated now, and the registration on the site needs more security. (Like a new ReCaptcha or a Secret Question or something like that.)

Yea I agree, I'll have to see what I can do. The strange thing is we are sometimes getting stuff posted by users who aren't actually registered on the site, which is why I can't delete them... it's like there is a security flaw or something that is letting them post without having an account on the site... but it's only in the comments section.

I had a feeling maybe the really old script I was using for the latest comments thing might be part of the problem (can't find anything that says there's a security flaw in php fusion itself), so I have now replaced that... this new one works better and is less buggy, we'll see if we get any more problems. If I can get a better and more secure registration thing I will add that too.

Definitely! I had to delete another forum poster this morning. Anyways, I found a plugin for Recaptcha as stray suggested, someone has already made one for php fusion so I am gonna install that. Also got something called "botslap" that is supposed to help with the most common spammers that attack php fusion installations. Hopefully both of them will help.
