I've been using guestbook.pl for a small non-commercial site for some
Recently, somehow it's being hit by repeated spam postings from porn
I believe the postings are automated. =20
I already removed all links to the guestbook in an effort to eliminate
someone harvesting its address from a google search. I'm *still*
getting porn posts, though. They're all the same, with a line or two
and a link.
Any hints on approaches to eliminate spam? I was thinking that
modifying the perl code to simply silently swallow postings that
contained the word "http:" might be effective.=20
Although I'm a programmer of several decades, I wasn't able to figure
out how to hack the perl code to accomplish this or, perhaps, just add a
password field that posters would have to fill in...
