Question Massive spam bots in Kunena v5

I get massive attacks by spam bots. I use Kunena v5.0.11 .

Once per day, someone registers in my site using spambots and he massively spams Kunena forum.

I use a new registration on the right of my site (Gameworld.gr, top-right Login button).
I also use Kunena registration. So I have 2 registration fields
gameworld.gr/community/register

Any idea on this? If I add a security question is this going to solve my problem? An if yes where can I find a security question module for Kunena or for main site? (or for both).

Please help. Thank you.

From the Kunena Basic Documentation:

"There is no perfect total solution to completely eliminate spam from any discussion forum anywhere. The only truly effective remedy against spam is vigilance. Kunena discourages spam messages appearing in your forum by using CAPTCHA. "

Joomla also offers a built-in CAPTCHA, within its configuration.

I also use Kunena registration.

Kunena has no registration. It's only a redirect to your Joomla registration. You can test this plugin, I have good experience against Spam Bots with it. It works also in conjunction with Google Captcha.

But there also other extensions on JED.

Consider looking at Cleantalk. It is very inexpensive and seriously works at keeping spam at bay.

I am not affiliated with them, just a happy user.
