It was a modified php BB, I don't know if it was a standard add-on or a script written by the site founder, for example you would take a common script in the title such as" COINBASE Email support?" and replace it with "Warning this is spam", it was only a short term measure as they would eventually change the wording, but it did cut us a little time,and stop the members opening a possible infested postBrian, do you remember what forum software they used
It might not help stop the attack but it could slow the attacker down and discourage them.I stand to be corrected but the way the spam was coming onto the site last night [at 15 to 25 min intervals] in each forum it looked like a human attack to me, so Capatch would not help
How did they get through the "spam filters" so effectively?
What in hell do these imbeciles actually achieve?
