How to deal with "proxy spammers"
#1
Hi.

So I've been having an issue with this idiot who keeps registering on my forum to spam it. He uses fake emails and of course, fake IP's (hidemyass.com) to do it.

My forum: http://thehockeynation.ca

Is there any way to stop a user from registering through proxies?

I realise one way I could stop him - most likely just slow him down - would be to activate email verification because seeing as how he uses fake emails he wouldn't be able to activate his account but he will still be able to register. I'm also going to be hiring more moderators today, hopefully.

Any ideas? I'd love for a way to ban proxy IP's if possible.

Thank you.

Enter each of the IPs at the follow site as deny rules in cPanel or your .htaccess file, and it should help a little.

Wow that's a lot of them. But I'll try this later tonight, thanks.

I removed some of the duplicates that I can see by glancing through.

But this is only a tiny amount of Proxies/VPNs available out there.

There's also sites like Proxy Heaven:
http://proxy-heaven.blogspot.co.uk/

The task becomes very tedious, constantly having to get updated lists. A lot of them release new lists daily. A lot are the same IP Addresses, but there tend to be new ones too.

I personally wish there was a list of Datacenter ranges out there, so we can just block all Datacenters. It would make life so much easier.

Alternatively, you can use board security plugins like StopForumSpam:
http://mods.mybb.com/view/stopforumspam-com-for-mybb

It contains a huge database of reported spammers that get updated on a daily basis. So if a spammer matches by IP, username, or email, they can get denied.

Of course, use ReCaptcha, and Security Questions:
http://mods.mybb.com/view/registration-s...y-question

Make a list of 10 or so random questions. I advise on keeping to your niche, but simple answers. Over time, you can change up the questions too.

This Limit URL Posting plugin is useful:
http://mods.mybb.com/view/limiturlposting

Because a lot of spammers are trying to post links. This will block their ability to post if they have less than the amount of posts you have it set on. Let's say 10, if they have less than 10, and they're trying to post links, it will block them.

Of course, a human person can still get around it by posting non-clickable links. But it's a nice additional layer, even if it's just to be annoying. And it blocks clickable links, thus no one would accidentally click them.

Good luck, I hope all that's helped.
