Do we need some sort of multifactor authentication to stop the madness?
sorry about that, should be gone now.
There is, but some do sneak through.
Umm. Looks like you need to enforce 2FA for everybody. This hack is bad news.
Wasn't a hack. Just spammers getting past the spam filters. Why would you think this was a hack and how would 2 step verification help stop a spammer that registers and posts spam?
Exactly, and also a pretty boring hack if it were
But wow that shit was prolific hitting every page.
Some of the spammers had close to 2000 posts! Amazing how fast they can automate these spammers posts!
If you force a 2fa they can't automate the bot. Maybe a future approach?
So you want me to setup a 2 step verification and set it up to have members go through that verification process before every post, or every log in? I'd lose members pretty fast.
All I did is now put all new registered members in a moderation que, and will approve them now, until this all dies down, which it will.
Maybe limit then post rate or challenge with 2FA after x number of post per sec/min? That might kill the bots
