Forum closed / spam bots still registering

I have my Forum closed, because I hd a massive spam-attack from spam-bots last week.

Just checking my Forum now, there are over 100 new members (spam-bots) registered as new "members" since last week.

How can somebody register at my forum, when in fact my Forum is "closed" and "not active" ???


Appreciate your help!

Closed as in this setting?

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Board Active -> Board is Active

That will prevent registrations unless you have some external registration system in place.
