Future Spam Defense Idea.


Recommended Posts

Just like Have I Been Pwned integration with 1Password Blog Post to keep an eye on your security threat level.

It would be nice if there was some kind of way our installations could over time work back thru our member roster and once a hash as been made interrogate a list (IPS or other third party repositories) of known spammers that include metrics such as email / IP address to thwart unwanted registrations.

Many of our sites span decades and have migrated/converted from other solutions and have no doubt many dormant and un-detected known spammers. If one is discovered and if there is a threshold of metrics (# of posts, length of registration, last log in, etc) then quarantine these and slate them for banning)

When I converted a 15 year old forum last year from Xenforo (which was converted from vBulletin), all of the IP history was lost. All of the addresses show up as the loopback address of 127.0.0.1. 

So I’m guessing this would be good only for as long as you have been running IPB. 🙂
