The site was upgraded to the latest version of the forum software this morning. All seems to have gone well. Smile

The original anti spam techniques have been removed and a new one is now installed. Hopefully this will remove (or at least cut down) the number of spam messages that were finding there way to the forum in the past few days. Twisted Evil

Looks like we have won the battle for the time being! after installing the new spam fighting tool there have been no more issues. All spam bots have been shut down, from 10 to 20 spam posts per day to none. Smile

Here is a link to the PHPBB solution that I am using just incase anyone is wondering.
