Spam attacks log
Service CleanTalk (this plugin is a client application for CleanTalk anti-spam service) records all filtered comments, registration and other spam attacks in the "Log of spam attacks" and stores the data in the log up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and no false/positive filtering.

Spam FireWall
CleanTalk has got an advanced option "Spam FireWall", this option allows blocking the most active spam bots before they get access to a website. It prevents loading of pages of the website by spam bots, so your web server doesn't need to perform all scripts on these pages. Also, it prevents scanning of pages of the website spam bots. Therefore Spam FireWall significantly can reduce the load on your web server.

Spam FireWall also makes CleanTalk the two-step protection from spam bots. Spam FireWall is the first step and it blocks the most active spam bots, CleanTalk Anti-Spam is the second step and it checks all other requests on the website in the moment before submitting comments/registers and etc.

Private blacklists:
Personal blacklists are very flexible and powerful tool, you can block or allow IP address, email address or mask e-mail (*@mail.com - will block/allow every address ending on @mail.com)

  • Anti-Spam service
    Automatically block comments and registrations from your private black IP/email address list. This option helps to strengthen the protection from a manual spam or block unwanted comments from users. You can add not only the certain IP addresses but also a separate subnet to your personal black list.

  • SpamFireWall
    It allows you to add individual IP addresses and subnets to SpamFireWall. It blocks the attacks from IP addresses which are not included in the SFW base yet. This option can help to block HTTP/HTTPS DDoS, SQL, brute force attacks and any others that made it through the HTTP/HTTPS. You can add not only the certain IP addresses, but also a separate subnet to your personal black list.

Check existing comments and users for spam. Bulk removal

With the help of anti-spam by CleanTalk, you can inspect through existing comments and users to find and quickly delete spam comments/users at once. To use this function, go to plugin settings: Extensions -> Plugin Manager -> Anti-spam by CleanTalk then click the button “Check spam users” or “Check Spam comments”.

How it works: the plugin takes the data of each comment (IP/email and date), by the comment date or the user registration date, it is checked what the IP/email status in the CleanTalk blacklist database was for that date. Based on this data a list of deletions is generated, which you can edit.

Blocking users by country
Automatically block comments and registrations from the countries you have set a ban for. This option is useful in cases of manual spam protection and for protection enhancement. If your site is not intended for an international audience and you do not expect comments/users from other countries.

Blocking comments by "stop words"
You can block comments which contain "stop words" to enhance spam filtering and messages with obscene words blocking. You can add particular words or phrases.

How Spam FireWall works?
The visitor enters to your website.
HTTP request data is checked of the nearly 5,8 million of certain IP spam bots.
If it is an active spam bot, it gets a blank page, if it is a visitor then it gets a site page. This is completely transparent to the visitors.
All the CleanTalk Spam FireWall activity is being logged in the process of filtering.

Spam FireWall DDoS Protection (Experimentally option)
Spam FireWall can mitigate HTTP/HTTPS DDoS attacks. When an intruder makes GET requests to attack your website. Spam FireWall blocks all requests from bad IP addresses. Your website gives infringer a special page with a description of DDoS rejection instead of the website pages. Therefore Spam FireWall can help to reduce CPU usage on your server.

How to protect sites from spam bots without CAPTCHA?
The most popular method is CAPTCHA -- the annoying picture with curved and sloping symbols, which are offered to the visitor to fill in. It is supposed that spam bots won't discern these CAPTCHA, but a visitor will. CAPTCHA provokes great irritation, but if one wants to speak out, he has to fill in these symbols time after time, making mistakes and starting once again. Sometimes CAPTCHA reminds doodle 2x year old child. For users with vision problems captcha is just an insurmountable obstacle. Users hate captcha. Captcha for users means "hate". Unreadable CAPTCHA stops about 80% of site visitors. After 2 failed attempts to bring it up to 95% reject further attempts. At the sight of CAPTCHA and after input errors, many visitors leave the resource. Thus, CAPTCHA helps to protect the resource both from bots and visitors. CAPTCHA is not a panacea from spam. Doubts Concerning the Need for CAPTCHA?

Spam FireWall

Cleantalk предоставляет свои пользователям дополнительную опцию - Spam FireWall, эта опция блокирует наиболее активные спамботы до того как они получат доступ к Вашему сайту. Таким образом уменьшается нагрузка на сервер и экономятся его ресурсы. Кроме того предотвращается сканирование Вашего сайта веб спам ботами.

Как работает Spam FireWall?

• Посетитель вводит адрес сайта в браузере.
• Данные HTTP запроса проверяются по базе из примерно 5,8 миллионов спам активных IP адресов.
• Если IP посетителя находится в базе то выдаётся пустая страница, иначе - страница сайта. Весь процесс абсолютно незаметен для пользователя.
Весь процесс фильтрации с помощью Spam FireWall записывается в лог.

Spam FireWall DDos защита
SpamFireWall предупреждает HTTP/HTTPS/DDoS атаки. Все GET запросы от атакующего блокируются - в случае если IP находится в базе. Посетителю выдаётся страница с предупреждением вместо страницы сайта - благодаря этому также уменьшается нагрузка на веб-сервер.

**Защита от XML-RPC брутфорса **
SpamFireWall предупреждает XML-RPC брутфорс атаки путем блокировки спам активных IP адресов.

Как защитить сайт от спам ботов ?

Самым распространенным методом является CAPTCHA-это раздражающая картинка с кривыми , косыми символами, которые и предлагается ввести посетителю. Предполагается, что спам боты не смогут распознать эти символы, а посетитель сможет. Для посетителя капча вызывает огромное раздражение, но если хочется высказаться, то приходится раз за разом вводить символы, ошибаясь и начиная заново. Иногда капча напоминает каракули 2х летнего ребенка. Для пользователей с проблемами зрения это может стать непреодолимым препятствием. Люди ненавидят Captcha это для них значит "ненависть". Считается что Captcha останавливате до 80% посетителей сайта. После 2х неудачных попыток ввести капчу, до 95% посетителей прекращают дальнейшие попытки. При виде капчи и после ошибок ввода многие посетители покидают ресурс. Таким образом Captcha помогает защитить ресурс и от пользователей. Captcha это не панацея от спам ботов. До сих пор сомнения относительно необходимости Captcha?

Within 1 week since I installed this to my Kunena forum, it has blocked 130 Spam Bots from registration.

Ease of use

Easy. After installing the extension, purchased at the website for the activation code, input the code in the extension and it works.


So far I haven't need to use yet. I hope it will be good.


I didn't refer to any document yet, just followed the simple steps.

Value for money

It is worth it. Really worth it. Plus you can get bonus subscription for the service.

I used this to: My Kunena forum in a website powered by Joomla.
Owner's reply: Thank you!
We hope spam won't bother you ever again.


Cleantalk saved us from a major DOS Attack on our website just over a year ago, by implementing it to stop known spammers etc to register.

Ease of use

Installation was super easy and there is really nothing else to do... CleanTalk takes care of the rest for you.


Everything was so easy that I did not even need any help from their support, which I'm sure would be wonderful if I needed it.


Everything is straight forward and very well explained.

Value for money

CleanTalk is definitely the BEST value for your money. It's actually a steal, considering the amount of spam it keeps off your site.

I used this to: We now use CleanTalk on all of our websites and will definitely NOT let them expire. We will be using this for life. CleanTalk has saved our website from a major DOS Attack and ever since the installation, we never had another again and its blocking off spammers every day!


Свою функцию защиты от спаммеров выполняет отлично. Статистика и журнал не до конца понятны. Настроек - минимум.

Ease of use

Установить и настроить проще некуда. Настроек минимум, установил - и работает.

Got almost 0 spam in 2 years site was up. Suddenly and mysteriously i got flooded with spam from 25 different countries in the same day...

Ease of use

Either they were just exploited or they work with spammers world-wide. It would be impossible for this scenario to happen out of the blue


It really strikes me as suspicious when every spam was geo ip traced to a different country AND was listed in their database


No db is that complete after only being in business after 1yr. Nor do i think spammers in 25 countries are that organized working togther

Value for money

I would suggest everyone file a complaint to the Department of Justice and their ISP as I have

I used this to: Very shady marketing technique. Save your logs folks. As i said above it would be impossible to recreate the situation described above and you are just paying a spammer to leave you alone and possibly gather information by installing this plugin. BUYERS BEWARE.
Owner's reply: Hello !

Could you please let me know which one anti-spam plugin did you used before CleanTalk? Perhaps you didn't know how much you have on the site received spam attacks because you didn't have such statistics.
We give you an open and detailed statistics for all messages, comment and etc! You can see your log on the CleanTalk Control Panel.

CleanTalk has no relation to your assumptions. "I have never beaten my wife".

Loaded question or complex question fallacy is a question that contains a controversial or unjustified assumption (e.g., a presumption of guilt).
