In your example, [url=something] should trigger a moderation provided you have:

[url

...in the bad words list.

A user typing something.com would not trigger a moderation because you would need:

something.com

...to be in the bad word list exactly written as you'd like to be moderated.

There is no partial match support outside of the [url and [img tags

Chadi 03 Apr 2013 20:53

Yea but the .com for example won't work if it were something.com

Can you update the mod to allow that, or disallow links (with or without url) for certain members / usergroups with less than X forum posts?

Thanks

ForceHSS 03 Apr 2013 22:45

Why not put {.com} in your bad word list then rebuild post cache to update all posts

Chadi 03 Apr 2013 23:23

I only want the list applied to users with 100 posts or less.

Yes I noticed that when I took a quick diff of the two files to see what the difference was.

Another product did not cause this conflict, and the reason you aren't experiencing this problem is because this problem was introduced in a recent release. You probably didn't upload the latest files to the correct directory and inadvertently averted this problem.
After seeing your changes I agree another mod isn't causing the problem, but the reason why my site isn't getting the messages, and likely many others aren't as well, is that my site do not delete accounts instead we simple ban them indefinitely instead.

I have been running this program for a few days now, and it has stopped the posting problems. I have noticed one real interesting thing. I have a spammer which I have deleted at least 4 times with glowhost and he is still coming back! Why would that be? He is using the same I.P.. Why would he not be blocked after one, two, three, + deletions?
I would have thought that after using the Spam-o-matic deletion that I.P. should not be allowed to re register.
He uses the same username and I.P. each time.

I can't believe it! Check the time on these posts! NultAccunny has already re registered!

Bluemax712 05 Apr 2013 04:35

Do you have spam-o-matic ban usernames enabled? I think it's disabled by default because of all the registration problems it causes with false positives.

ie - they can get a new IP faster than you can ban them
enabling ban username should shut it down for this username - but it will be a major hassle for other new users trying to register

Best thing would be to enable all new registrations to be approved by mod for a few days - and wait it out - maybe he'll get bored
and ofc be sure to also install good timer-based-registration mod like Spambot Stopper

Try this to ban his host

If that does not work try this and put @emailhost.com in the email banning section so if he uses hotmail it would be @hotmail.com and @hotmail.co.uk

The use is using the same IP each time! That is what I don't understand, I would have thought the program would have submitted the IP as a spammer and not allowed that IP to be used on my site or any other.

I have the vbulletin email verification on.

I may have to consider another vbulletin plug in to work with this one, but I don't like to have too many plugins installed because I have had problems and I have limited knowledge:(
The nature of my site would allow me to simply ban all IPs from certain countries.

By the way, he's back. He shows as registered, and leaves a signature. If he tries to post, spamomatic stops that.

This program will not ban his ip you need to add his ip to the banned list in options if you add the plugins I posted above they will help he won't be back

You didn't answer the question about which blocking options you have enabled for spam-o-matic. If you are unsure take a screen shot showing the complete options page for spam-o-matic, with any ids for askiment, etc, blacked out.

This might help you. Don't remove the user. If you remove the user then vB can't help prevent the new registration.

Set SOM to:

Moderate post

Ban User

In vB don't allow duplicate e-mail addresses. If the IP is a bad IP then ban it in vB. You can also not allow signatures in vB under usergroup permissions. Then create a forum for banned users and don't delete the user, but move the post to that forum. You may keep the forum hidden in forum permissions if you like.

To upgrade this product I would just overwrite the files in the FTP then allow over write with the xml correct? Also will I still have all my pre-sets saved or will they be gone? Thanks! :)

Sadly this mod also adds a link to "Glowhost" at the bottom and the Spam-O-Matic header links to this thread without saying that anywhere.
Yes I understand this is a free mod, but that doesn't justify infringing people's websites lol. You made yourself look unprofessional and I personally wouldn't use "glow host" web service because of how it's being promoted; maliciously.
My immediate guess is that it's re-seller hosting for a failing web host service with alot of downtime ran by you.
Sorry if this offends you, but this is my honest, constructive, criticizing opinion that could probably help you out.

You can remove the link in the settings if you take the time and look over them then you would of seen this

I really DIDN'T notice that when I posted but I would change it up a bit if I released the mod. I still DO feel it's slightly malicious and that affects the reputation of the service slightly

rcull 08 Apr 2013 15:14

I installed this program earlier this week, and I seem to have new members having a problem with the return key on their keyboard not working when posting. Makes for some long paragraphs!

Where should I look?

StopForumSpam vs Akismet
by robert1848
08 Apr 2013 17:17

I'm just a bit confused about the API key from stopforumspam.com and the one from Akismet. Do they do the same thing? Is one superior to the other?

The following quote makes it seem that both would be good:

Spammers that make it past the StopForumSpam and Auto-Moderation will be checked against the Akismet service.

In other words, are we duplicating a service that might add complexity and increase chance of conflicts? If we use both, are we significantly enhancing our spam barriers?

Thanks.

To answer your question the best way I know how:
Akismet is more for blogs
stopforumspam is for forums

Akismet continues to monitor your site for comments placed on blogs, not really on forums. Stop Forum Spam is a list of spammers IP address, e-mail, and user names. It only works when a member is using registration on your site.

Go back to page 179, look for a posting by vbresults. He has attached an updated glowhostspamomatic.php . Upload it and over wright the old one. I had the same problem, and it worked.

No "Spammers Denied Registration"?
by GerstnerUSA
09 Apr 2013 19:18

Newbie Question - Do you have to register at stopforumspam for the API key to have user IP's and e-mail addresses checked by their database?

I have started a forum with your mod, but i don't have anyone listed for "Spammers Denied Registration".

The GlowHost log on my site shows eveyone that has registered "Passed StopForumSpam checks. Sent to vBulletin Registration System."

I have enabled IP Check andE-mail Check in the GlowHost Settings.

In the short life of my forum, I have had to manually go through the posts that were auto moderated and it has resulted in:

140 Spammers Permanently Banned
332 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated

I compared my setting to another person running a forum, and i can't see any differences. I am running VB 4.2.0 and GlowHost 2.1.0.

Could i have installed only part of the mod correctly to be able to moderate posts, but not have registrations checked?

Thank you for your time.

GerstnerUSA 10 Apr 2013 18:07

Today, I uninstalled and re-installed the mod and I am still getting the same results.

Everyone is being allowed to register, but their posts are being moderated.

I am also running OpenCart on my website, so i know that cURL is running properly.

Should I try "or allow_url_fopen enable in PHP settings"? If so, where would i find the PHP Settings to change this?

Any suggestions?

Ok, I'm back to report my findings. It now works perfectly with no errors!

I download the file from page #179 in Post# 2684

I then replaced the admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php file with this one glowhostspamomatic.php

You need to change the settings in this mod and the default settings for modding posts

I am not sure what settings you are referring to?

I have set the mod to have SFS check IP and check e-mail addresses, but SOM has yet to deny a single registration.

I have had over 40 new registrations since i re-installed the mod today (12 hours ago).
38 Spammers Permanently Banned
26 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated


I just checked one of the moderated posts on my forum and it was posted by:
User Details:
Username: nawfuscuncasy
User ID Number: 451
User E-mail: [email protected]
User Registration IP Address: 168.63.134.90
User IP Address for Selected Post: 168.63.134.90

I did a search on StopForumSpam and it shows:
Found 236 entries for "168.63.134.90"

The first 50 entries on the search show the same e-mail and IP address as the person registered on my forum. I would assume that this user should have been denied registration by SOM, but it wasn't...

Any Suggestions?

Is this the only Mod you have running on your server - have you disabled all others?

GerstnerUSA,
Some of my settings may differ from others, it depends mostly on the amount of security that you need. This is my one and only mod for stopping bad registration. The only other thing that I use is Solve Media but that is to help generate a little revenue! So spammers give it your best shot, I make money every time you try.

This may be long, but maybe it will help others as well. I will not note everything because it is user preference.

First Akismet is for Blogs:

Enabled
Post Count: 5
Enter your key
Easy Cleanup: Yes

Stop Forum Spam IP Check: Enabled
User Name Check: Disabled (This setting may vary from user to user)
Email Check: Enabled
Desired Action: Log and Block Registration

Query Connection Errors: This one may vary from user to user as well. If the SFS database is down or unable to retrieve records you have two options. I Allow registration even if it means I may have to both remove them, block the IP and or E-mail. Always do a search before you block an IP!!

Remote Expiry: Another one that users may have set different. I have mine set to 30 but if you are having consistent a consistent problem you may want to set it higher. Just remember that if you do innocent people could have a problem being issued a dynamic address that a spammer used before them.

SFS Key:

Easy Clean Up: Yes

I used the Newbies Manager group once but I currently have it disabled. It is a good feature to turn on if you are having persistent problems. You may read about it here: http://forums.glowhost.com/programmi...ager-2382.html

I also currently have Auto Moderation Disabled.

The next few I don't even use at the time being. They primarily have to do with the Newbies group. However, there are a few more options that I do have enabled, but the list is pretty long.

See if your current settings are set up similar to mine. Maybe this will fix your issue.

GerstnerUSA 11 Apr 2013 14:22

@Syxguns @apsrfbv4

Thank you for your responses.

I don't have any other Mods installed on the forum. My website does have OpenCart running and a RapidSSL Certificate.

I have checked through my settings>options>glowhost-spam-o-matic and they all were already using the same answers you recommended:

Stop Forum Spam IP Check: Enabled
User Name Check: Disabled
Email Check: Enabled
Desired Action: Log and Block Registration
Query Connection Errors: Allow Registration
Remote Expiry: 30
SFS Key: (I have not applied for one yet, will it check IP's/e-mail's without a key?)
Easy Clean Up: Yes

The only places that i differ from your description are:
I do not have an Akismet Key
I have Auto-Moderation "Enabled"

I have checked my IP address and my e-mail address in the SFS search area, and neither come up with any results. I would assume that they would not be blocking e-mail and IP Checking from my forum.

Could there be a setting that i accidentally changed somewhere in the forum that would not allow it to communicate or receive data from external websites? (ie. not allowing it to check with StopForumSpam..)

Do i need to add the StopForumSpam website somewhere within the settings as a trusted source?

Thank you for your time...

Bluemax712 11 Apr 2013 16:57

On a test 4.2 server I tried registering the user with email [email protected]
and SOM stopped it with a "registration denied" message
It doesn't have a key installed - so it does work/block without one (normally)

One thing to check is the first option for SOM
the GroupProtect IDs is this set for 5,6,7?
Edit: then again if it is still moderating posts but not preventing signups it's probably not this setting - nm


Could that user have registered on your forum before it was added to the SFS database?


You can try doing a test register of a bad email address yourself
-Since you don't want an email sent out for the test you can disable email temporarily on your server by adding this line to includes/config.php

define('DISABLE_MAIL', 1);

- Then pick an email address from the current SFS database and try registering with it to see if it is blocked
- and remember to remove line to re-enable email after done testing :)



Also if you have root on your server?
You could capture a tcpdump during the signup and should see some traffic to www.stopforumspam.com
with a "GET /[email protected]" and a "GET /api?ip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" in it


Or this may be easier to try from shell window on your server (without needing root):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and the reply back from SFS in the response.txt file should contain something like:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

GerstnerUSA 11 Apr 2013 21:50

@apsrfvb4

I checked in the CP--> Maintenance--> View PHP Info:
allow_url_fopen: is showing On On
cURL support: is showing enabled

From your previous post, i checked with my domain host support (explained what i wanted to try) and they said that they don't have a shell window, or root access that i can use to try and test your other suggestions.

I tried to register with an e-mail address (em***[email protected]) that is on the front page of SFS (Top e-mails submitted) and i was able to register on my forum.

I checked the SOM Log Viewer and it shows: "em***[email protected] - Passed StopForumSpam checks. Sent to vBulletin Registration System."

I have my forum set-up as a subdomain (forum.mydomain.com) , and I installed all of the files into a subdirectory (/forum) on my website, not the root directory. Would that make any difference with anything?

Thank you for all of your suggestions. I hate to ask if you have any other ideas...

Bluemax712 11 Apr 2013 22:24

other than try setting up a whole new test installation in something like forum2.mydomain.com
and see if can get it working.

Without shell access it's tuff - might even want to find another provider
especially if they don't have shell access themselves.

GerstnerUSA 11 Apr 2013 23:15

A lot of legitimate users are trying to sign up but they are using the Contact Us link to tell me that they are being caught as spam and consequently unable to signup.

I'm not sure why this is actually happening when they are not spam?

This is most likely due to the fact that you have "Username Check" Enabled. Set that to be Disabled. Only check IP address and e-mail address. Also make sure that "Remote Expiry" is not set to high.

Thanks for that tip. I'll try adjusting those settings and hopefully it no longer blocks the good users.

Hi guys,

Users have been reporting issues with registering and posting.

They get the following error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function SOM_Process() in /[.........]/forums/register.php(338) : eval()'d code on line 11

vbulletin support seems to think it is a plugin causing the issue and I narrowed it down to spam o matic.

Can I fix this?

i have very specific question,
would be possible to ask for feature to check emails against SFS via GHSOM even after registration ? (e.g. users not going thru normal vB registration system)
e.g. for first N posts on the account , or/and accounts younger than X days ?

thanks in advance for help

My glowhostspamomatic_log and glowhostspamomatic_remotecache are taking too much space (75,601 records / 14.7 MB + 39,339 / 2.8). Is there any way to clean this up?

rhody401 18 Apr 2013 19:54

ADCP -> Logs -> Spam-O-Matic -> Prune Logs to __ days

I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that this will do all that you are asking. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

enivid2008 18 Apr 2013 20:45

Thanks! It worked for glowhostspamomatic_log but did nothing to glowhostspamomatic_remotecache.

hinomaru 19 Apr 2013 03:41

hello,

At my moderation tools there's not spam-o-matic menu, how to enable it at the all thread by username moderation tools?

Thx

I am using version 2.0.2 but can't see any list of the version history to know if its worth upgrading to the 2.1 version. Anyone know?

Also, if you are upgrading, what are the steps? It says uninstall if you are upgrading from version 1.x but doesn't mention what to do for 2.x upgrades. e.g. do you set it to Overwrite existing installation? Do you still upload all the files? Or uninstall first?

enivid2008 19 Apr 2013 17:34

Just upload and import with overwrite if you are upgrading from 2.x.

Jon12345 19 Apr 2013 18:01

Thanks for that. All seems to be working ok.

edited for ignorance,.. found the fix in the posts before me,...

thanks

Well so far:

I installed and opened registration (had it closed for months) and in 5 min 20 spammer accounts blocked...lol

Good job!

keromeister 25 Apr 2013 00:17

I'm getting the same thing, seemed to happen shortly after i upgraded to 2.10.

I'm running the latest spam-o-matic 2.10 on vb 4.1.7.

Anyone got any ideas? The only suggestions on the internet is to disable spam-o-matic which isn't a great option. :eek:

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi guys,

Users have been reporting issues with registering and posting.

They get the following error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function SOM_Process() in /[.........]/forums/register.php(338) : eval()'d code on line 11

vbulletin support seems to think it is a plugin causing the issue and I narrowed it down to spam o matic.

Can I fix this?


GlowHost.com 25 Apr 2013 00:23

We have a bug and security fix due out in the next few days. I will take a look at this and see if it is related to what has already been patched.

If there is a problem with the security to or forums do we need to remove this plugin? Can you tell us what it is at least

keromeister 25 Apr 2013 01:09

SOLVED.

The function names are totally different between 2.1.0 and the previous version 2.0.2.

I had installed the xml file for upgrade, but I had accidentally copied the wrong include files from the old version (2.0.2 instead of 2.1.0).

As a result, the hooks were calling the updated function names that did not exist. Once I correctly copied the upload/* files from the correct version into vbulletin all was well.

Hope this helps someone.

It's nothing which has been officially reported as exploited, just to fix some hypothetical problems, optimizations and other known issues.

Yeah, I've had that happen twice... had to reinstall the blogs both times.

vB5 vs. vB4 have a completely different format. I could be wrong but my guess would be that the between the two there will not be any compatibility. Now I could be wrong because I did not bother to update to vB5, as it seems that forums are becoming a thing of the past, which we need to fight against. Within the next couple of days I will post on vB.org, vB.com, my site and a number of other sites a start in ending the charade that social media has brought into our lives.

Someone else with vB5 may have a better answer, but I'm pretty sure it won't work.

There have been a number of errors reported to you, including one by me in this thread, and there was no response from you. Another coder fixed it for me. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...07#post2413407




I know this is free and you have done a great thing for us, but is this supported or not?'

I hope your new fix addresses some of the errors posted here that.

Another product did not cause this conflict, and the reason you aren't experiencing this problem is because this problem was introduced in a recent release. You probably didn't upload the latest files to the correct directory and inadvertently averted this problem.



That foreach statement and it's closing brace -- there was no reason for it to be there, probably set in by accident.

Again, Sir, I want to thank you for solving this for me (and others). It has not occurred since!

Has anyone else noticed a massive amount of false catches with this? One forum I am running this on is getting 3-4 a day emails a day from people saying they have been detected as spam.

secondeye 30 Apr 2013 09:33

Uninstalled it because:

Stop real users to sign in.
Do not stop spammer to avoid making spammy post.

I had configured it that if a post contain any link then moderate it but SOM failed to do it.

This is all my stats area is showing (as you can see it's missing the information).
