Help! Spammers register new sub blogs like crazy…

WPMU 3.3 + Buddy Press

I have set “Registration is disabled.” in network admin>Registration Settings. But the spammers still keep coming and registering new sub blogs every 20 minutes. Is there any backdoor they can get through even I turn off registration?

How can I stop them?

Thanks for your help in advance :slight_smile:

    If they’ve previously been able to register a user account that will allow them to register new blogs. It’s only new accounts that are disabled by that setting effectively.

    Have you checked the usernames associated to the blogs when they are created? Try deleting the user accounts as well – that should stop ’em for good!
