Blocking Entire Countries

Postby DrSpooky » Sun Feb 14, 2010 9:04 am

Hi,

Over the past couple of weeks, there has been a large increase in the number of spam account registration attempts. It was getting to the point where we were getting multiple attempts within an hour from the same IP address. Spooky has to do some due diligence on every account registration to make sure it is not a junk account for porn, drugs, or WoW gold. For this onslaught, 99% of these addresses are inside China or the Philippines. Over the past few days, Spooky and I have implemented a ban on all IP addresses in those two countries.

Just letting you all know.
