    Spam-O-Matic's plugin is good, which you can get from the vBulletin customer area, and changing your DNS over to Cloudflare will help tremendously!

    Just a quick note if you do use CloudFlare for your Vbulletin forums...

    Make sure you do a quick Vbulletin modification so original visitor IP is reported back to your server logs.

    I use a combination of spam-o-matic and badbehavior. It works really well!
