    I'm having a few problems with my sites.

    Site A: spam content (credit reports links and bingo links, etc) is being inserted into the database, even though we have CAPTCHA implemented on every single form.

    Site B: files are getting created in writable folders on the server that are spamming other websites. These writable folders have to be there for SMARTY (http://smarty.php.net/) to work. But, I have no idea how those files got there.

    The only solution that I have been able to come up with is to implement mysql_real_escape_string function from php.

    If anyone can give me more information or tell me if I'm totally of my mark... its greatly appreciated.

    Not so much a prevention than a screening of content. For one of my projects, I login to an admin panel and I have to verify comments before they go live on the website.

    Try using http://uk3.php.net/strip_tags

    If someone is creating files via PHP then that should stop.

    Another idea would be to ask real life questions, I know these are text based however if the answer is not in the page source code (retrieved from some file) then the bots should not break that.
