Can the Mod's confirm a recent deletion of any Spambots in the last 24-48 hrs?? If not, then that isn't what's causing the problem.


I know of at least one...it's pretty constant, lately.

I got some 'ghost notifications' yesterday and today too. I figured they had to come from deleted spam postings. Nothing wrong with your computer Barry :)

Yeah Kees, I know. :D
Wow, sounds like a major onslaught. Anyone know if the board software is patched and up to date? Often new versions will address these kinds of attacks...until the next wave.

Got a ton more of them today. Twice!
Thanks to the Mods for stomping on 'em. :up:

If these things are able to register automatically then the registration needs to be beefed up to include a Captcha type of confirmation to ensure that it's human who's trying to register and not a ^&#@*($ robot! :x

Here's some background on this technical attack and how to stop it: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1437125
The first step as mentioned before, is to upgrade the forum software to version 3.x
