The Spamfruits is 100% effective, and if they figure it out, it's just a question of changing the images and the fruit names.

It's an easy one to install.

Hi binary,

There was no change in the validation image between 2.4 and 2.5, so there's no real need to upgrade unless you really want to. In fact, there are quite a few small bugs in 2.5. It just seems that many bots have cracked YaBB's CAPTCHA.

There are three Mods available which do a pretty good job at stopping spam though, but one or two of them might need minor tweaking to work with 2.4 - see this thread to grab the links to them:

http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1321729071

You're not the only one who has been getting spam recently, if you take a look through the General Usage and Feature Troubleshooting board, you'll find quite a few discussions and information on it.

Hi folks,
My 2.4 forum is working great, normally i work with "not broken, don't fix it" mentality, but lately I've been getting lots and lots of spam bots..
Captcha simply doesn't catch them Sad

Is there an improved mechanism for this, in 2.5 AE?

Or is there perhaps a plugin/module/addon/mod/something I could install to help with the problem?

My validation looks like this:
