There is no need to create a panic here. There is NO vulnerability here - it is a user who registered and started to post spam. His account has been banned and his posts have been deleted.

The only way to avoid it would be to force approval of every message/comment here, which wouldn't be very productive. Therefore we're willing to deal with this little inconvenience.

Having a Captcha on comments wouldn't change much, because it would affect only bots, but not real users.

In summary - the best way for us is to keep eye on spammers, delete their messages and ban them.

I believe that this spammer is not only here on xoops, but has been banned in several forums

You could always install Xortify 2.50 on XOOPS.ORG this will utilize stop forum spam which is normally aware of spammers before they get to this site.
