Post Going to DefCon 2 • Posted: Tue Dec 19, 2006 8:39 pm
Alright guys, sorry I haven't been around lately, but I've been writing exams for the last few days which blows. I won't be able to fully analyze the recent spam bot attacks but I have activated some of the boards higher security functions. These include:

Min Log-in tries has been reduced to 3, after that your account is disabled and must be activated by an admin.

Visual Login Confirmation is now active. Each time you log in, you will have to enter an activation code as well.

Auto-pass expiry as been set to 3 days. Orginally it was unlimited. Now it will expire every 3 days requiring you to retype your password.

Linkisdoomed is now a mod. I need some more "forum fuzz" to help delete any attacks that come through. MBC is here to help out.

These should be good until I can fully address the situation. However that may be as far as January due to no access to site files. If things continue to get worse, I'll move the forum up to DefCon 1 which means no autologin, no more instant registration, and all spam/login limits are lowered.

I've lost count as to how many spambot attacks I've deleted. 3 today. I've been checking the forums at least once everyday, whenever I can find time between school and TP.
