Title: Stop Spammers
Post by: batu544 on April 24, 2010, 05:40:18 PM
Hi,
        Whenever I login into my ACP, I can see a lot of users usually browsing my website.. but actually most of them are spammers. I started blocking the spammers by their IPs.. but is this the only way to stop the spammers.. ??   

  Is there any better way to stop the spammers to visiting one website ?

Thanks,
batu544

hi,

you will never have a chance to stop spammers. as they using proxies.. look another softwares.. like forums...
nothing is secure... captcha, reCaptcha.. there is nothing what you can do in my opinion. you banned one ip... they got another one.. you are again banning... new ip... again, again, again...
spammers are everywhere..

only one thing you can do which are you doing already... delete comments... ban user... ban ip (even you are maybe for later banning good users).... as you would maybe on a forum.

that is it.
hard work..

I have captcha on and I still get some spam in my comments.

If you get spam in your comments, one possible way that I am trying is to put the name of the URL that the spammer is posting
in my badword list. Spammers are trying to build up their Google search rankings with their URL on thousands of sites, I'm thinking
if the URL doesn't work, then the spammers or spambots will leave you alone.

Does anyone know how to include badwords to change words in the 'name' and 'website' fields of the comments section?
At the moment it only works in the 'comments' section

all die captcha systeme die es gibt funktionieren nur bei spam bots, sobald eine natürliche person dahinter ist, ist der spam schutz sinnlos.
das einzige was du machen kannst die diversen spam text phrasen in eine DB speichern, und sobald ein user einen dieser text kombinationen verwendet wird er gebannt.
nur befürchte ich das erstens innerhalb kürzester zeit dir die DB um die ohren fliegt, zweitens müßte bei einen jeden comment die DB zusätzlich abgefragt werden.

versuch doch das mal:

Maybe you will have a look at: http://www.botscout.com ?


I want to include BotScout in my 4images registration page. Instructions ask me to add this code:
1
2
3
4
////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// BotScout.com "BotBuster" check
include('/path/to/your/forum/Sources/BotScout.php');
////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Can anyone tell me what file to add this to and where to include it?

@ Comicart paste the following code into your .htaccess.

1
2
3
4
<RequireAll>
Require all granted
Require not ip 188.92.75.244
</ RequireAll>

The IP you have to replace with where the spams come from.
The above is Latvia.

Thanks but that's just one IP!
I integrated Botscout on the register.php page here:

10
11
12
13
14
  if (!empty($additional_user_fields)) {
      foreach ($additional_user_fields as $key => $val) {
        if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS[$key]) && intval($val[2]) == 1 && trim($HTTP_POST_VARS[$key]) == "") {
          $error = 1;
          $field_error = preg_replace("/".$site_template->start."field_name".$site_template->end."/siU", str_replace(":", "", $val[0]), $lang['field_required']);
          $msg .= (($msg != "") ? "<br />" : "").$field_error;
        }
        ////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// BotScout.com "BotBuster" check
include(ROOT_PATH.'BotScout.php');
////////////////////////////////////////////////////
      }
    }
  } // end if

I'm waiting to see how affective it really is.
