    Can you restict sending of private messages only to trusted groups. You can make a group promotion based on message count and other criterias and then allow members to send messages in private if they belong to that group. Is there any reason btw, why you are using an older version of xenforo? For security reasons one must always use the latest version.

    How exactly is he 'stealing' passwords with these links?

    Why haven't you just banned his account & IP address?

    I assume that you banned that user 's account? Have you used the censorship option to censor that link?

    You need to tell your users not to click any untrusted links, they should know this anyway, I'd also advise updating your install to the latest version.

    Nobody can answer that until you clarify how he/she is "stealing passwords" by having users click on a link.

    Agreed. Being a third-point version or two behind is one thing, but being two second-point versions behind is another.

    I know of at least one site that still uses 1.1 or something like that.

    The actual URL in the first post should be edited so no one opens it.

    No, there's nothing on that link that has anything to do with fishing
