The Latest Trends
Flaccid Spam Management
- Spambots easily get through basic anti-spam measures such as email verification and captchas, rendering those methods impotent.
- Spambot programmers upgrade against more complex anti-spam measures, making static solutions fleeting.
- Human spammers in low-wage countries bypass anti-spam measures entirely, making such measures a barrier for real visitors attempting to register, but a necessity to minimize spambots.

Protection From Above
You are protected from above with 3-Series, the first cloud vBulletin plugin of it’s type. 3-Series includes a built-in blocklist which keeps track of all spambots caught, a built-in spam firewall which conserves server CPU cycles and bandwidth by serving repeat-offender spammers a blank page, a “honey pot” trap that only robots can stick their hands in, instant DNS blocklist checks in the world’s largest databases, and our proprietary “Hitman” solution.
The most powerful protection against spambots in 3-Series the fact that it is software delivered over the cloud. This allows us to constantly make improvements and not expose the back-end code to reverse engineering by spammers, with no effort on your part. It has as little configuration as 1-Series does, and requires many less manual updates.
How Effective Is It? Ask them
“Spam Hammer 2-Series is without a doubt the most important plugin in my vBulletin system, and the one plugin I simply cannot live without. Before this plugin I was spending 2-3 hours confirming and combating spam registrations. Now, it is a 5-10 minute task at the beginning of the day.
What Spam Hammer manages to accomplish is nothing short of magic. It is a one-stop defense against automated spam registrations. In the month before I started using Spam Hammer I saw 5,500 spam registrations. Last month I saw fewer than 100.
Here’s the thing: most people put their entire stock into free plugins and are offended by the idea that they might actually have to pay for a little bit of security. I am happy to have paid for a quality product and I would happily do so again.”
Here is what people using Spam Hammer 1-Series say:
- JarretC says: Awesome so far! Just installed and have already blocked 2 spammers within 5 minutes of installation.
- CharlieDelta says: What a great mod. Within the first 24 hours I had 50 emails. Works so well I had to turn the emails off. Thank you for sharing!
- The Cat! says: 70 in the first hour. Awesome mod.
- dilbert says: I’ve been using this for two weeks now. 3,052 spammers blocked and I have a very small site. Thank you again.
- John Lester says: I installed this about a week ago before going to bed, woke up the next morning and found 134 emails from blocked registrants Have it set to 9 seconds and most of them had a time difference between 3 and 5 seconds. Love it!
- BGN64 says: Before installing this mod I was getting 10-20 spam registrations per day. After installing I am getting 2 per week. THANK YOU!!!
- da prez says: I have only had 2 spammers try and 2 spammers caught. Nominated. Thanks
- gajinoz says: I saw this mod some time ago but didn’t pay it much attention, I wasn’t getting much in the way of spammers and they were reasonably easily handled. Recently though I started getting swamped with the buggers so I thought I’d give this mod a go. VERY glad I did, in the 12 hours since installing it over 60 bots have been stopped and they’re still coming. EXCELLENT mod, very happy with it. Thanks. (My mod team thanks you too.)
- mrfarb says: Like others, I recently got bombarded by spammers. I installed GlowHost mod, but this one seems so simple it’s a no brainer, and not intrusive at all. I’ve disabled the other mod and left this in place, it’s stopping a bot registration every minute or so! Excellent! Voted for MOTM for sure, thanks.
- bomb192uk says: Excellent mod, simple and effective. Over 300 blocked in 24 hours! (all were spam)
- pete_brady says: 10,100 bots rejected so far nice.
- canadianrodder says: Pete, that’s hug. Installed last night about this time and have received 115 block reports.
- rodajest says: Great mod! 25 blocked on the first 20 min
- msolano says: I have to thank you so much for this. Even though I enabled Akismet service (Anti-Spam Service from vBulletin) and Human Verification Questions/Answers many months ago, the last week I had a lots of bots spamming, my moderators were getting annoying but this saved the day. Send them to Miserable group is a must! My site is a little one but spammers don’t care about the size. Again, thank you so much and I voted for this (MOTM) I set the time in 17 seconds: 10 reports in 30 minutes, most of them < 5 seconds.
- strudinox says: Just wanted to drop in and say thanks x 10000!! I’ve been hammered by spammer registrations the past few months. An hour after installing this mod I had 60 emails about blocked registrations! I’ll turn off the email function for now, but glad there is finally a way to block these bots! Installed + Rated!
- midgetgrimm says: I just want to say thank you for this mod. It is a very efficient mod. In less than 24 hours it has stopped over 80 attempts. Majority from Ukraine/Russia region. So thanks for the inventive, and creative idea and for putting it together for all of us for free. Cheers mate Installed and rated as well.
- Jason Ramsey says: already blocked 33 in about 30 minutes on one of our sites. Spam had gotten so bad, we had resorted to manual registrations on all of our sites. (We still do it for other reasons on one of them, which is also the one that this plugin has denied over 30 spammers in the last 1/2 hour). This could be the single-best mod ever made. Thank you, very much.
- dwkmi says: I was getting bots about every 2 to 4 minutes, so I turned off registration for a few days. Installed this, turned registration back on, and in the past 15 hours it has stopped 74 bots, and a real person registered fine. 100% success rate.
- Neno says: my programmer loaded it today: I turned it on: caught 12 bots in 30 minutes registering in less than 15 sec. LOVE IT, now i can turn registration back on. TY
- Rostor says: 41 bots blocked in 64 min Good very good mod
- patrick91 says: Need to say it works like a charm. After installation few days ago had more than 40 bots that where blocked! Great marked as installed! Using vB4.2 Pl3… It saves me a lot of time to ban and remove those and now have to do nothing at all
- JMocks says: This mod is amazing. And does its job. I haven’t changed ANY of the settings. 13 days since forum launch, has 113 blocks. Thanks again!
- Jim Quinn says: Brilliant Mod! After initial implementation, over 1,600 blocked attempts in less than a 12 hour period.
- wayne.richards@ says: I honestly thought this wouldn’t be much good but its amazing, only installed it half hour ago and 5 dodgy registrations blocked! INSTALL IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- smstoolbox says: Hi, This does exactly what it said it would – after 2 days received over 800 emails, thank you very much for your work…
