Inappropriate spam in my forums... security?

i have been having a HUGE influx of spam in my phpBB forums. is there a way to raise security?

New innovations in spam-bot technology have left all forums getting slammed by spam. The best thing to do is to make it harder for a machine to register on your forum. There's not much that can be done about it other than that.

Please check out http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=393503&highlight=bots for help for phpBB boards. You basically have to change something from the default registration and it will stop most - if not all - bots.

I hate spam so much... Obviously the people that do this don't have a life Evil or Very Mad . The topic that Bondings linked to looks quite helpful Smile.
For anyone using SMF, I'd suggest the Advanced Visual Verification mod, as well as my own Akismet mod.
