Who ever spams like that seriously has far too much time on their hands. Another forum i regularly use is always being spammed, so much they even made an entire forum for casual spamming. It has the most posts out of all the forums on the site.

My forum recently got hacked and luckily I was transfering sites and had my MySQL database backed up on my HDD Very Happy. Didnt loose anything but 50-100 posts. I was happy ass hell! But does anyone know if there is software that you can add to your phpBB board like firewall to help keep spammers blocked?

Thanks.

Google

- phpBB Security
or
- CrackerTracker (this one is a dutch site (i think) but the proggie is in english)

Install it as a phpBB Mod.

And, keeping your MODifications you installed on your forum up to date, and keeping your phpBB installing up to date is also important to prevent yourself from being hacked.
