Where can I download this? I'm sorry I can't find it on JED or the CB Solutions tab.

CB Antispam is one of many add-ons available to Professional / Developer members.

It is not a free (as in beer) download.

In the future, perhaps you could also integrate the free community blocking service provided by StopForumSpam.com? We've used that for over 1.5 years on our vBulletin forums and it works fantastically.

If any person does get through their screening (perhaps a first-time spammer) you can ban them and they get banned across the entire community of users. If you didn't want to use StopForumSpan for that service, you could implement the same type of shared, community service specifically for Joomla users.

My reason for mentioning this is that it works so great that we use our forums as the primary way of having users access our Joomla setup. They are pre-screened and we have NEVER had a spammer make it over to our Joomla system.

All the same, we're going to give CB Antispam a fling and see if it can do the same.

No spam lists will be implemented. The reason for this, if you read the fine print, is they can not be used in commercial products. Meaning we would have to give CB AntiSpam out for free, which is extremely unlikely to ever happen, for us to be allowed to use spam lists. In addition to this they have a very low API call limit. None of them can meet the demands of a moderately active CB site as it would mean several API calls to the spam lists to check an IP and or Email Address against the spam list and if you hit the API call limit too many times they blacklist you.

As long as you're using CB for your login then CB AntiSpam will protect you from spam attempts without having to bother with spam list checking as it can auto block a user if they've too many failed attempts, etc..

You could also use one of the many Joomla extensions (usually System, User, or Authentication plugin) available that act on login triggers to check if a user is on a spam list. These should work with CB as CB does fire normal Joomla login triggers. So you could have the best of both worlds.
