Spam abuse in Comments

Post by R0CKY » Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:35 pm

Look at this FAQ entry.

It is full of spam, but as you can see - there is no comment entry box - comments is OFF. Also, CAPTCHA is ON.

How are spam comments getting posted when the config has comments off?

It might be that these are old comments from a previous version number. I will delete all the spam and see if any new ones appear.

Also, I do not use the NEWS feature at all, however there are many many spam comments in the news section, that can be seen from the Admin Centre.

Hi,

okay, looks like there's a way to comment spam...

I'll work on a fix for this issue.
