    Increase in Spam from old accounts

    Hello everyone, I've noticed an increase in spam from old accounts over the past few days. These are accounts that haven't posted on the forum for many years. All the spam is advertising "Top-notch Casual Dating". After analyzing other forums, I've noticed the same thing happening there too...

    New'ish type of spam I'm seeing

    Something I haven't seen until recently is new members signing up and after a few normal looking posts, start replying to discussions and adding link code in the quoted part of their responses. It's also setup so that it's not visible without viewing the code. So something to consider. Not sure...

    Mas ban accounts based on IP

    Trying to ban all members that signed up on a single IP. Sadly our spam prevention stopped working and over 1000 accounts signed up using a single IP over a few weeks and now spam the forum like crazy. Is there any way to mass ban based on IP? Any plugins? Thanks Jack

    How do you deal with SMART Russian bots? Any tips? Banning Russian IPs didn't do anything, because they learned how to use VPNs from European and US.

    Yes, my forum requires Email Verification before Guests are able to post on my forum. I don't want to do Manual Approval for every new user, because I get hundreds of new Russian/Turkish spammer registrants per day. I don't want to deal with shifting through this to find legit users to...

    XF 2.2 Users can still submit new threads if already in the moderation queue, allowing to bypass spam-detection/cleaner limits

    Hi, We configured "Maximum messages to check for spam" to 15, as with that amount of valid messages (i.e., not hanging in the approval queue) its highly unlikely that a user starts spamming, so the "Spam cleaner user criteria" setting was also set to 15 for similar reasons and because we...

    XF 2.2 Spam regex not working

    Hi guys, I'm getting a bunch of spam posts by new users. Some of these messages include links so I decided to give the spam regex admin.php?options/groups/spam/ a try so that users with less than X posts can't use links. With no success. At all. The last thing I've tried is @Mike 's regex...

    Fixed Restrict password request rate for registered users who currently have no password set.

    Currently (XF2.2.2), when a user doesn't have a password set for their account and requests a password via the "Password and security" page, they can send any number of requests without any restrictions. Of course, they can only flood their own email account in such a way, but this also...

    Spammers in Approval Queue, what to do?

    We switched over from VB to XenForo. I'm now sure how VB dealed with this, but there barely was a spam problem under VB and no manual action had to be taken against individual spammers. Now with Xenforo, there are a lot of new account registrations that XenForo detects because of matches against...
