Default Where would I post this question? PHPBB

I am helping a friend out with their forum... I am having an issue with PHPBB 3.0.8 security issues, where they are getting a lot of spammers...

Thanks Shane

@JCB is what is a free forum that is better then PHPBB?

I think that one of the main issues, is that email confirmation is not set, I am really not sure... I just use common sense, I don't know squat about running a website, or forum... I am just going by my common sense...
