    Have you banned the IP yet?

    How did you do it?

    I've banned the IP from my server therefore all my customers with Xenforo don't have to do a thing :D


    Adding to csf.deny and iptables DROP...
    DROP all opt -- in !lo out * ->

    We get a few spammers here and there but most are posting links to drugs or promoting an affilaite site.
    I haven't seen much if any xxx type spam that we saw here, on my forums.
    Maybe we've already banned that range of ip's as well in past bannings, I don't really pay much attention to it..lmao

    ofcourse.. they could all be attacked to my vb5 install so they skip the xenforo one :p

    Probably lol

    But I don't think they'd target vb5, since they flooded this forum saying it was rubbish.

    Happened on the 4th October, I saw it via twitter. It was really annoying but Jake and Kier came to the rescue :D

    Looks like #XenForo needs some more moderators who are up at odd times of the night.

    I am seeing a LOT of spammers use the new IPv6 addresses and there seems to be no way to IP ban IPv6 addresses? Or is there?

    should be able to via IPTables.

    Already can be done via .htaccess:
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from 2001:db8::a00:20ff:fea7:ccea
    Deny from 2001:db8::a00:20ff:fea7:ccea/10
    Allow from all

    What if this spammer was paid by Internet Brands to hit xenForo where they can't solve problems? :D

    xF Ltd. should countersue iB and hit them hard.

    banning one IP is not really a long term solution!

    Good luck, IP address are easily came by and can be changed out in a matter of minutes usually. It's only a matter of time before they come back.

    Might want to try to build some stronger anti-spam measures in to the software.

    I guess that's what I get for saying I didn't ban that ip yet
    just got on and had over 1,000 accounts setup, all "kierxxxx" ones, most where Kiersucks or something
    anyways, removed the threads and deleted the accounts in the database and now did in fact ban that ip
    what else can we do, I was literally away from my forum 2 hours max, and had 1000's of new threads and users on the forum
