Kunena 6.0.8 Released (17 Jan 2023)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.0.8 [K 6.0.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.0 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 6.0.
Question Bots or real humans?
I've already set the user moderation to 2 so they can't actually post. But they can still register and activate.
I've signed up at Project Honey Pot and given that information to "Admin Tools". I'll be looking to see if the Honey Pot can slow them down.
you could look at ochSimpleFirewall . A normal firewall tries to stop spammers while spamming, ochSimpleFirewall stops spammers / abusers / mallware / etc. who are known to spam / abuse and been caught by others (stopforumspam, cleantalk, etc.)
If you would like to test to see if it works for your use case, please let me know.
For me it does miracles, not only on kunena, but also on contact form etc.
sharing = caring
I ended up just requiring all new users to be approved by an Admin. I also see 20 or so registrations per day where the user name ends in two upper case letters. They're easy to delete. The rest require a closer review but I've gotten pretty good at anticipating spamsters.
