new accont spamming

  • Guys,

    My forum is being spammed heavily by someone or script. News accounts are being created with bogus accounts. Is there anyway to solve this issue?

    Thanks,

    Gio

    The best way to combat this is at the network or firewall level. You could also try the “human test” plugin by _ck_ which may discourage them for a while.

    The spammers figured out how to defeat the old Human Test so I updated it:

    http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/human-test/

    and I will be updating it again later this month to make it even harder

    I’m forcing all registrations through my blog; will this plugin work in WP?

    Yep same here, big increase in spam regos this week. Thanks _ck_ for the update, I have installed the new one and will keep my eye out for the newer version still.

    Cheers!

    @mzimmers – no, it will not work with WordPress; it’s a bbPress plugin. There are other plugins available for WordPress, but only this one for bbPress as far as I know.
