AkoBook was one of the first guestbook solutions for Joomla/Mambo. It comes with a lot of features like: support for user votes, locations and all major pagers. It has been translated into many different languages and is currently the most used guestbook for Joomla/Mambo.
i've enhanced the first version of AkoBook to support the major antispam solutions:

  • Securityimages: captcha (user interaction needed)
  • Hashcash: cryptographic challenges (transparent for the user)
  • Akismet: webservices oracle osrting out spams from relevant entries (transparent for the user)

Only work for securityimages > 4.x
  • NEW integration of Akismet: a webservices for dealing with spams.
  • BUG register global off patch -> better for security
  • BUG: possible SQL injection in some SQL queries
  • BUG: check update URL descriptions up to date
Recommended security update for existing users and new users!
