Hi,

We activated captcha for our "register" for an account after it was being spammed.

That worked for about 2 months. The bots appear to have got around this as we are now being flooded with automated registrations again.

Is there a fix for this?

Thank you for any help!

OC version.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

No problem re OC version - but it is required 9/10 questions - so .. maybe just add it to your footer :)

Re spam: Well personally I would use the capabilities of the big internet corporation and enforce their removal by law - but as yet the powers that be just can’t seem to get a grasp on how dangerous the internet actually is - so as it stands - no matter what you do eventually these people find a way around it.

The problem is that what ever is used is “general” i.e. easy to get around - get around one - and they post it online - have competitions - do it for fun - want to become government operatives - the list is endless ..

So here is your solution - these are recommended developers :
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... on_id=4773
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=38244
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=36312
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=37705

Be aware of which pages each works on ..

and here you can try to find one yourself
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... %20blocker

If you search google for opencart forum stop spam you will get a few solutions with ips, but I do not recommend that method.

The built-in OpenCart captchas, as well as some of the 3rd party captcha extensions, are easily bypassed by the modern spambots. Hence captchas won't offer much of a protection anymore. Our Spambot Buster uses a different approach with an invisible honeypot trap field, and checking for required mouse/touch/keyboard events.
