CB Antispam released with great protection tools
Great job once again Kyle!
Congratulations to Kyle (krileon) for the great new major release!
Keep up the great work.
Wonderful ans vert useful plugin.
Could you tell us how and where phrases for anti spam can be translated ?
How does it fit with admin tools ? Can both tools be used at the same time for front end login control ?
This plugin seem to be very complete and powerful... I looked on all settings but I'm a bit lost and unfortunately like all Incubator project no documentation are provided.
My goal was to only block user IP after (for example after 5 login attempt) for prevent brute force attack. So if I understand correctly is only required to:
- Go to Configuration plugin
- Go to Tab Login
- Go to Tab Auto-block
- Enable block
Could you confirm if this is right please ?
Delighted to see a plugin to combat SPAM, but what we really need is something that can pattern match against registrations data to provide automatic blocks. We get a lot of robotic registrations with pretty consistent patterns: For example:
Name - Sleegrern SleegrernAZ
Username - Sleegrern
The "lastname" will always end in 2 Upper case characters and first, last, and username all match (except for the 2 uppercase characters) OR we get some where first, last, and username all match exactly. These are and a few other repeating patterns are all generated by SPAM-bots out there. A CB plugin that let use set up rules using REGEX patterns for these three fields and block if the pattern is matched would be HUGELY helpful.
We can not block by IP or email domain as the IPs vary widely and the emails are generally hacked accounts on popular email services like hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc.). The best option would be something to detect the robot generated patterns of name and username and block if the pattern is matched.
Any chance you may add a feature like this to the new anit-spam plugin? Or is there any otther way this could be done with existing CB plugin(s)?
