bot registrations

Postby mnp13 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:24 pm

Just an FYI - there is a fix you can add to your forum code to stop the spammer auto-registration. All of the captcha's have been cracked and from your memberlist it looks like you're getting hammered with fake registrations just like my forum was. It's a two line thing that you add to the registration page code, it's on the phpbb site, let me know if you can't find it.

I've switched the site over to reCaptcha, so it should be better now.
