[phpBB3 3.0.8 MOD] Avoid spambot attack

Messaggio da Rombo di Tuono » 28 feb 2011, 13:55


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In these days, it seems there is a big attack against phpBB forums.

Many fake users register, and no protection seems to work: neither captcha, nor GD's image, nor re-captcha.

I've no time to format my own solution, like an "official" MOD, but I want to share it with other people.

Anyone is welcome if able to contribute.

Name of the MOD: StopForumSpam MOD
Author: Rombo di Tuono

Description of the MOD: "StopForumSpam" Mod DISALLOWS registration to anyone with e-mail, IP, or username inserted in http://www.stopforumspam.com's blacklists
Version of the MOD: 1.0 RC1

Requirements: phpBB 3.0.x

Features:
How it works:
MOD checks for e-mail, IP and username on registration, and returns an error message if one out of three elements is in blackists, more: it adds a post in administrator's log.

MOD is based upon the one made by http://www.alexdoolittle.com, who owns the whole credit

I've made just some modifications, because it was generating some errors.

Now it's stable, but I suggest to add a PCA interface, and to format MOD according to standards

Here is the code with instructions for the MOD

I prefer to have a check for the frequency, i.e. the number of times the element is in the blacklist, just to avoid false positives, anyway, I've set it up to THREE.

Codice: Seleziona tutto

Since there are STILL tons of spammer, probably your administrator's log will fill in a matter of days...

When you are sure all is working, check for the three lines that begin with :"add_log('admin', 'SFS_BLOCK_" and COMMENT THEM [put "//" before "add"]

this way:
// add_log('admin', 'SFS_BLOCK_.....

Since we were under "attack," are we at risk, and would this be a good time to change our passwords, if we havent in awhile? Or does it matter?
