Members don't notice the words written as case sensitve because they become confirmation blind ! i guess you are talking about this mod: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t...

maybe you get it working with the standard fonts if you change this line in usercp_confirm.php: if (function_exists(imagettftext) && count($fonts) > 0) { to if (1==2 && function_exists(imagettftext) && count($fonts) > 0) { then it uses the built-in fonts anyway. this will not...

the reason it fails is because spammers are using humans to do their dirty work now. so what do you think about my solution against manually entered spam ? i also created a mod with an alternate phpBBimage, that includes the host-domain of the server it is supposed to be shown on so this version wo...

Nice, but could do w/o the "spacetrace" info, unless there is some sort of legal reason for doing this... :P what you see is not a spacetrace version! it is the host that is in $_SERVER[HTTP_HOST] what you see. if you install it elsewhere, there is another text visible. this insures, that...

i have a solution against manually entered spam: if a user is registered new and makes his first post in the forum, there could be a check, if in the post he is making, there is an URL included - if so, then this user is deleted immediately, (or better after a timeout of a few minutes, so the user d...

captchas are extremely easily defeated these links show, that you can get humans to read the words on the captcha if you offer them something to win or free pix if they do... this works if you have the possibility to recognize the same word. but if you use skibberish words on your captcha, and put ...

the spambot won't be able to figure it out even if it can read the captcha. nice idea, but for the beginning it would be enough to create a new captha image-genarator that is harder to read. i programmed one here: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=362561 cause if someone makes the efford t...

And even then I STILL get spam because the stupid porn peddlers, travel agencies in Uruguay, etc. have my site on a list of sites to spam! you could log the useragent and HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE of the spammers and if the language is something like korean or so , then just show them a white page: if (...

i think this mod is a bit outdated cause modern bots simulate a real user, including session and waiting a few seconds before posting a better solution is the captha-validation-image where you have to type some letters from an image in the registration process. it is included in phpBB since some ver...

They found a way around it.... i guess the bots this time just read every page and use the form they really get there and then use the submitbutton on that page :( I think that the only solution to the spam problem is a robust death penalty. that would be nice ;) i found a mod somewhere that allows...
