Re: German spammers? In reply to
Update: 2 days have passed and I have tested this fix against their site, my site is now safe from the German spammers at http://www.searchup.de/promo-ten/maschinen.html

Here are the 2 steps that at least presently, will keep the German spam machine from getting to you.

1)In ADD.CGI, under the sub process_form,

replace:
# Check the referer.
if (@db_referers and $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'}) {

with:
# Check the referrer.
if (@db_referers) {

2) In LINKS.CFG at the Referers area
Add your domain, with single quotes as shown below. This will tell links2.0 to only accept submissions from your domain, ie. the add.cgi at your site:

# Referers -- which hosts are allowed to add to your database.
@db_referers = ('ezfriend.com','www.ezfriend.com','64.176.68.173');


------------------------

These two fixes I found in the forum and have worked for me, so hopefully they will work for your sites too.

Good luck,

Tim
