Has the NRU group been on all of the time through this? Did the accounts that posted actually register before that group was activated?
Are there any other ways to register on the site? A homepage or through facebook?

In standard phpBB, what you are describing CANNOT happen, so some extension or modification is the issue.

NRU is active all the time. All the spam accounts were registered after NRU was enabled. In the same time period some spam accounts got created and their posts we're awaiting approval, so it is not a consistent behavior.

I can't think of any other way to register account on this board.

Is the Permission for Can post without approval for the NRU group set to No or Never?

In addition to that, is the NRU group permission set on the forums where you saw posts?

That was probably it - I checked all the permissions and "never" was set only on some forums, while not on others. I have set it to all the forums. Let's see if that solves the issues.

Thanks for the suggestions :)
