Is there a way to quickly and easily report previously registered spammers which we've moved the posts into a "spambox" private thread and banned them?

This is probably a stupid question but where is the report button? - I had a spammer register on my forum although the account hasn't been activated and I wanted to report it to the database as a google search flags the IP as a known spammer (only ever posts asking for a program to break captcha)

Oh and in the images on the mod page you have details to show spammers that have been blocked with graphic bars etc. - I get nothing like that on my site - just the option to deny them access

No problem.

Have you installed the last version? :)

Yes I have :D

EDIT: sorted out the images problem LOL - silly me forgot to unpack the update and copy the gif files across

Great Mod. Nice and simple to install and use...

Hi,
Just uploaded this mod to the forum. I think it's working?! Is there supposed to be some kind of interface or something? I see it in my packages installed but can't "get to it" or see it anywhere. Are there any settings or anything? or did I not install it right and there should be a screen or something to work with.

Thanks!

Great Mod!

I referred back to the database to pick up any strays and found one. Instantly banned the user and within hours my site was hacked. This user was the last one to access my forum before it was hacked.

Can I post his info here to warn others and is it possible to get him on some sort of hacker database?

If the mods or M-DVD do not approve then please remove this - but I am seriously ... annoyed yeah that's a safe word. This was not just a malicious files hack but a database hack!!

No, only looking this user from:
Admin > Members > View All Members

Or use

Admin > Members > Search For Members

And you can use (eg) the memebergroup (banned) in case exist this memebergroup.

You can see the FAQ, and look the interface, how to use, etc.

Also, you can test registering spammers (via action=register; don't via ACP) from this web

There is currently no way to do it.

Remains in red to maintain this "data", but (if it is necesary) I could add the feature to "clean out" a user. (snoopy_virtual time ago suggested me this case)

Up until now I think he's only on the serious spammer list - bit my error logs show only this IP attempting access before the hack - I have no proof other than error logs and a gut feeling.

The main files were left untouched but once loaded the pages redirected to a site that had been totally hacked by BL4cK 3Y3D

It was this - http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1599405 - that pointed me in the right direction of where to find it and how to fix it after spending days checking all the forum files.

I only hope this can be helpful for others

Thanks OriginalP, zcuba. I have uploaded your translations :D

Great MOD and I bet it is getting even more attention now :)

Well I think I know the answer to this but I will ask anyway. Since I have a dating site I have a modified upload avatar on registration option. I am assuming that this is a problem even if I use the Stop Spammer Mod, correct? I mean once the file is uploaded I am toast most likely, you think?

As far as I know, the hole is only exploitable if the user has access to "something" that shouldn't have access if it is blocked with this MOD.

Until now, all the hackers/spammers involved in recent attacks have been in the DB of SFS, Still, it doesn't mean not there is a "new spammers" that isn't in the DB.

The best is disable this option to upload avatar until the patch is available.

Filipina

thanks M-DVD. Even though leaving this avatar upload off is having a negative effect on my site i guess I will leave it off. Better to be safe than sorry  :)
