PHPbb Security


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how I can boost the security of the sign-up form in PHPbb - I am using the most up-to-date stable version of it and I have enabled the security image but that does not appear to be enough, I am still getting at least 5 sign ups a day caused by robots etc. and it makes it annoying as then I have to manually approve the genuine people.

The spam bots are very annoying...and smart - the phpbb captcha doesn't even slow them down.  While waiting for the phpbb authors to change the captcha (I have no idea if they plan to do this), you may want to employ some of the options suggested here: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=427852
