Imlinks-report broken and spam

On iCMS 1.1.2 and imLInks 1.02 (Protector 3.32) I read everyday emails reporting broken links. They are only spam.
In Protector logs I see spam attack against smartsection, liaise, etc. But spammers are not blocked for imlinks
Is there a trick or preference option for Protector for get it works for imLinks?

Re: Imlinks-report broken and spam

Best is to turn off notifications with imLinks.
Instead it's better to use Gijoe's Waiting module. The plugin comes with imLinks.

I am using the following settings with Protector 3.40:

Temporary disabled: No
Logging level: full
BannedIP suspension time: 259200
Protected IP bits for the session: 24
Groups disallowed IP moving in a session: Webmasters
Sanitizing null-bytes: Yes
Exit if bad files are uploaded: Yes
Action if a contamination is found: Blank screen
Action if an isolated comment-in is found: Sanitizing
Action if a UNION is found: Sanitizing
Force intval to variables like id: Yes
Protection from Directroy Traversals: Yes
Anti Brute Force: 10
Bandwidth limitation: 0
Watch time for high loadings (sec): 60
Bad counts for F5 Attack: 10
Action against F5 Attack: Blank screen
Groups never registered as Bad IP: Webmasters
Disable dangerous features in XOOPS: None
Enable DB Layer trapping anti-SQL-Injection: Yes
Never checking _SERVER for anti-SQL-Injection: No
enable anti-XSS (BigUmbrella): Yes
anti-SPAM: URLs for normal users: 0
anti-SPAM: URLs for guests: 0

Further I've the following filters enabled:


For the filter postcommon_post_deny_by_httpbl.php you need to register with Project Honeypot.

This is my current list of bad ip's. Maybe you can add these to your list.

I would like know what was the trick: your IP list or Protector config...
