Re: STOP SPAMMERS NOW

Rheas, reCAPTCHA can't be hacked. Once their current CAPTCHA is bypassed, they simply update their algorityhm. Because it is a service, they can do that. You don't install their system on your PC, you simply embed their service.

That's why reCAPTCHA's change over time: now they use black spots on their captcha's. They also warp captcha's over time.
So generally, reCAPTCHA is a good system, but like any system they can be bypassed, but reCAPTCHA does a really good job. But like any CAPTCHA, they haven't got a 100% succes rate.

Do you need help with hosting, installing or customizing your XOOPS website? I also develop modules and themes for XOOPS.

Re: STOP SPAMMERS NOW

All you have to do is install profile 1.70 and Xortify 2.5.1 to stop spam, it stops it dead in its tracks.

Re: STOP SPAMMERS NOW

Is XO running Xortify?

Re: STOP SPAMMERS NOW

Peekay: I set xoops.org up a username, just waiting for someone to install spiders and xortify to prevent harvesting and spam. I suggest you all update to 2.5.1 of Xortify as the older versions had latencies issues and would slow down the site.

It is compatible with 2.4 and 2.5
