Last night was a busy night for us, spam-bots bypassed the CAPTCHA, and posted obscene images and videos. Apparently, this just didn't happen to us, other forums who use the Invision Forum Software also got attacked. It was a bug in the CAPTCHA system.

A patch has been released and has been installed in the forums. We hope that takes care of it.

As of now, new registered users need to validate their registration via an e-mail they'll receive when they register to the forums

Sorry for the inconvenience and for the content these spammers are posting. Jim said the patch he installed didn't work. He's out right now, but he'll take care of it when he gets home in like an hour to hour and a half.

Bare with until then...should they return again.

Add a custom profile field that is required to register on the forums, that asks a question for example what is 13-11. You then require the answer to be 2. It has worked for me many years on my IPB forum. Bots cannot add or subtract yet...

But it will be easier to make out which are the spam topics over searching in each section.

Yes, loads of it, but not 200...or maybe if it happened, I was already logged off.

It happened to another forum I visit a lot too. How did you fix it if the patch didn't work?
