5 measures to fight spam in phpBB 3.0-based forums

I finally found some time to translate one of my most popular German blog posts about anti-spam measures for #phpBB 3.0 to English! This post is targeted to forum administrators who suffer from the mass of unsolicited junk posts created by spam bots every day.

phpBB comes with a few anti-spam measures already such as a good Captcha or techniques against mass posting. But due to the popularity of phpBB, spammers put a lot of effort into developing ways to automatically break these measures. The techniques I describe in my blog post have been tested in real life for some years already. Since I implemented them in the Spamihilator forum almost no spammer was able to actually post!

I hope they're useful for you as well!

SPIEGEL ONLINE interviews me about Spam

I recently gave an interview for the German online magazine +SPIEGEL ONLINE. Since I'm the author of the freeware anti-spam tool +Spamihilator, I was asked some questions about Spam and Phishing mails, why these type of mails are being sent and how you can protect yourself against them.

So, if you know German, read the article and have fun!
