Yabb 1 Gold SP 1.4 - Spam users/posts issue

Hello folks Smiley

I'm running a old Yabb 1 Gold SP 1.4 forum with about 100 users.
Forum currently has 21000 posts in 2500 subjects.
We used to host the forum at a different domain - but have moved it to my home server, running on the IP, no domain name.
Edit: URL -> h t t p : / / 82.143.239.7/yabb

We have always had quite a bit of spam registrations, but very very few spam-posts from those users.

We moved the site 6 months ago, but the last month the number of spam users and posts have been increasing dramaticly.
The last 2 weeks i have deleted 8-10 users and 4-5 posts every single day.

Here you can see the IP Access log for the last 24 hours:

I know that Yabb 1 Gold is very very old - but all attempts to move the site has failed.
Is there any way to reduce some of these posts/users ?
Any captcha plugin or something ??

It was really terrible that the number of spam registration and span post have increased dramatically from last month onwards. I donít know what exactly the reason behind this increase. Spam registrations and posts are common in all forums. The only way to control this is by adding captcha functionality or any other functionality to check whether it is human or computer trying to register or add post. I think there are captcha plugins available. So try adding some plugin so that it can definitely control a huge amount of spam registrations and posts.
