Hi- We’ve been trying in desperation to stop spambots from registering profiles on our very active bbpress forums, and despite the captcha test we installed, it seems they are circumventing the registration process and creating new accounts all the time. We’re getting around 50 fake profiles a day.
We’re being told by several sources that this is a bug in the current version of bbpress and there is no solution for it. We simply can’t accept this, that bbpress would be open to such severe bugs.
Right now we’re manually deleting profiles and we’re seriously considering abandoning this plattform for a more secure foums solution that works with WordPress.
Do you have any insight into how to stop them from creating bogus profiles? Right now for some reason they are all having their birthday as Feb 2, 2008.
You can see some of the profiles here:
