IPs arent necessarily country specific but you don't even need to do that.
You just need a good non-searchable Q&A in your antispam and it'll stop straight away.
Please visit Preventing Spam in phpBB3
for various options for fighting spam in phpBB.
How to configure Q&A
- Administration Control Panel (ACP) > Spambot countermeasures> Installed plugins > click the dropdown box and select Q&A (it will be greyed out)
- Click the configure button then click add
- Add your question and answer (you need a Q&A for each language you have installed) click submit
- Click "back to previous page" then click "back"
- Select Q&A from the dropdown box (again)
- Click submit at the bottom of the page.
