Friend with a phpBB board needs help.

It might be a bit out of date and he is being hit with spammers and spambots big time.

Does anyone have the time to offer some tips or do some clean-up? He's probably good for great BBQ feast in return! Or more!

Thanks!

If he's using phpbb2 he might try going to www.phpbb.com and searching the mod database for "security question". I had the problem once upon a time and that solved it.

You could also upgrade to phpbb3 which is supposed to have better spam protection.

I highly recommend upgrading to phpBB3. I had a huge problem with spammers on PGHDance.com with phpBB2. After I upgraded to phpBB3 I didn't have any spammers sign-up at all and I have been running it since one of the Release Candidates (we're at the final release now).
