Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Thanks for the update, I'll take a look at that when I'm finishing up.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Here's an obvious real person. They probe and try to get around it, make a successful post and then try the sig right away. I'm guessing this is a botnet operator trying to get around the system, or maybe a real-life link spammer. They must know the profile leads to deletion because they probe it be...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

To filter the www.ownsite.com without http:// the code does search and replace of http://, then does a second replace of just www.ownsite.com. That would get a bit complex to parse and handle the whitelist domains (check for http, remove if there, double search) in the code as it exists, I'd recomme...

Re: [RC] Disable links for new users & guests

I'll try to finalize any strings today so we can combine this with the other external language file and work it all into the next release.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Another extreme option is to count the URLs and delete accounts with > a defined limit. I mean, what normal user is posting more than 10 links? 50? This would get the (few) spambots I'm still seeing who don't try to do a profile first.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

I'm not seeing any bots hit my domain and start playing about? Have you tested with guest, etc to make sure it logs? It will also tell you if it filters and approves someone. It reports all activity related to filtering, the only thing it doesn't report is when it rejects a 'regular' user for filte...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Anyway, now for the fun part, I'm off to check my logs :lol: Childish of me I know, but I love the thought of the spammers jumping through all the hoops we set up for them, only to delete themselves at the last hurdle, and save us the bother :lol: I'm loving this part :) Are you running extreme? I ...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Thanks to everyone who has been testing, providing support, and generally helping out. Or do i have to read wiki.. As the code monkey for this mod I say yes, you MUST read the wiki. I spent an afternoon documenting and illustrating every feature of this MOD so it was easy to understand. Despite that...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

No worries then. I updated the unicode documentation to hopefully help people out a little more.

I personally don't understand the mysteries of REGEX, so maybe it works either way :)

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

@Philthy - checked your screen shot, it looks like your regex filter might be a little off. REGEX does the chaining of multiple character sets itself, so it's not quite like the search terms and URL elements. PREG_MATCH evaluates the whole statement at one time. For REGEX, you need to include the / ...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Thanks for the update :) I am also in the process of doing new screenshots for the wiki. Is LINKS_FILTER_OPTIONS defined properly in the language file? en/acp/board.php: 'LINKS_FILTER_OPTIONS' => 'spam hammer', It's fine with me to define it in the other place instead though, especially if it isn't ...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

There are two filters for unicode. Please have a glance over the very fine documentation or read the descriptions in the ACP setting.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

It depends on what the script calls to do the post processing. Maybe you could ask the mod author to take a peek at my previous post and tell us how they handle the Jquery data. Usually there is a little custom backend.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Sorry, I didn't understand that you meant an ajax reply box (non phpbb standard) when you reported that bug earlier. No, this mod will not protect that. Sure, it can be applied though. Follow the example the MOD uses to check posts and apply it to the similar code in your other MOD. Find in /posting...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

That means the account is older than the min day, but has 0 posts.
1 - create a new test account
2 - turn 'disable sleeper agents' off in ACP
3 - increase min days in ACP

This and the other settings are thoroughly documented on the wiki.
