Spam Login Filter v1.7.1

Release Notes

  • Integration with service. Visit to get a API KEY. The process is manual, so be kind in the request.
  • Fassim service inspect top spammers domains, top spammers ISPs, anonymous proxies and blocks by country and region (Blocking by region works only in Canada and United States)
  • E-Mail Notification now explains the blocking reason.
  • @Ray J: I have upgraded to v1.7.2b so will continue posting in that forum (also now using v1.2a of Tracker plugin). To answer your first question - yes I realise your plugin only affects users trying to register and not already registered users, the list of 'Users online now' in Admin/Stats shows users mostly without IP addresses (example from previous posting below):

    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info
    IP: | Info

  • @cj: I will check, with tracker creator, what we can do. But you are suffering from a ip spoofing or a apache problem. I will do a "google" and check what can be done. The users above are real users? Real user do not try spoof your site. Check this, so we can isolate the problem.

  • No those users are not real users.

    I will check with our admin re. the apache problem.


  • everyone who signed up on my site were listed as spammers and their IP in block list. Next time they login - what a surprise - message saying that fassim thinks they're spammers. I wouldn't know that but I experienced it as admin. Tried making test user and what I see my own IP is in block list after I created test - user. Next time login as test - I see that IP and email is banned. Very funny fassim. elgg 1.8.6
