ACP -> Permissions -> Groups forum permissions -> Guests -> Forums -> Role: Read-only Access
You have not disabled all guest access as http://forum.exambazar.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=378&p=1500#p1500 posted ok when it should not have allowed posting if guest permissions were disabled. You should go through all forum and user permissions to make sure that guests can’t post anywhere. On the post form there is one field where you enter a username when posting when not logged in, it isn’t checking to see if the username provided matches a registered member name
