Title: Gahh. Spam attacks
Post by: DaveGilbert on January 28, 2016, 12:07:30 PM
So it's no secret that this forum has been plagued with spam of late. I zap them and ban them whenever I see them. I've increased the security of the registration form. Nothing seems to be enough. I know this forum isn't exactly hopping, and the spam attacks are probably the reason why. I know this has been an issue for a long long time. I'm getting some outside help to look into it. Thank you for your patience. :)

So I directed to download and install a patch that supposedly will fix some security loopholes. Crossing fingers it works!

OK so the folks still spamming the forum are accounts that have been registered in the last week. I went in and deleted all the accounts that were registered in the last MONTH but haven't made any posts yet. Hopefully that along with the new update will cut down on the majority of it.

Gah. Spammers are back.  >:( :( >:(

Been dutifully zapping them as I see them. Sorry about this. Looks like we have to update the security again.

Once in a while the spambots come in full force. They are coming again. I zap 'em as I see em. Sorry about that. It always dies down eventually. :)
