Re: Major spamming problem HELP!!

Thanks...

We had this problem with our phpbb2 forums after we upgraded, I kept phpbb2 forums under a hidden address, nobody know but myself.

After 1 month, had 100,000 spammed posts full of porn. I had to delete each one, as something went wrong with our forum and had to re upgrade.
