This forum and other scripts carry a brand and this is harvested via the source code.

The larger and more popular scripts all suffer from the same sort of attacks.

I'm just testing the latest version that includes a "Honeypot" to trap SpamBots, I uploaded to my main test forum this morning and have caught these so far.

Well, all seems good, not had one spam registration since installing the Honeypot, logs say I have caught 255 bots.

Anyone want to do some testing before I publish the mod?

Would be a good idea to read through the related threads... would answer some of your questions already, quicker than waiting for a reply

Martin is no longer present in this forum, so little point in directing questions.

I have described most of the install here, and there is other info in this thread:
