in the last days a few idiots got banned for any illegal action with or in my guestbook.
In all cases they wanted to leave something behind about casino's.
it seems that phpnuke is maybe the new target in these bot trying to auto fill your forms.
This is done for a long time to people who have wordpress running.
I know cause i had one running as a blog and had about 10 visits of a bot a day trying to enter something as news,and they were are related to casino's.

Maybe tha spammer is your old friend the "big fish". I forgot his name. How spammers work is always the same. But today I heard about spam through PM and this really awful. I ´ve deinstalled my guestbook.

Maybe, but I don´t wanna give spammers PR through my guestbook. Thats the other reason, why I deinstalled the guestbook.

A guestbook only for registered members is really not interesting, if some of our members post in her language, I couldn´t read their spam-message. Belive me, I´m happy without guestbook. Smile

susann your to protective... Smile
The bots they create for this are dumb but they know that the web is full with nuke sites that run on 6.0 or higher or lower versions.
And because guestbooks have mostly the same forms so its not so difficult for them to create something.
We always call it guestbook...right?
Thats why its so easy for them...
but if you need to be registered to sign then your safe..
and if you have sentinel then your safe as well...
