Hello there,

Have you tried disabling xallowRatingProducts on the admin ?

Please also make sure that xprotectemailforms is enabled as this will add CAPTCHA verification and will make things a bit more difficult to spam.

If you are still experiencing issues, please submit a ticket to our helpdesk at https://helpdesk.vpasp.com and our support member will assist you.

Thank you.

The spammers my be going direct to the review page.

If you know a site is using VP and you know the formating of the pages then you can go directly to the review page.

Do you have any rewriting capabilities? If you do then you could redirect all review pages to your home page (or the equivalent product page).

Alternatively open up the review write file and change a few things (make a back up first) so that the page is unusable. Or even just rename it.

Hope this helps.
