Fake users and spam

Postby ufo » Mon Dec 17, 2012 12:43 pm

Hi.
My forum:
www.tieniaperto.it/forum

Has been attacked with undesired user's registrations and spamming posts!
My board is updated (3.0.11), I changed the phpBB db tables prefix and changed the chaptcha (from Q&A chaptcha to GD chaptcha). I don't know what to do! Any advice?
Thank you!

See Preventing Spam in phpBB3 for extensive discussion. The most effective method is adminstrator-only activations, but it's unpopular because the user has to wait for you to approve their registration.
