Re: New javascript-based captcha for XOOPS

Pure brilliance, culex... :)

I have implimented a renamed function to this great hack to make it work with other javascript frameworks also.

Where can we download it?

BTW - to improve security, it would be nice to have actually a "random captcha", i.e. XOOPS would randomly invoke a standard Captcha, reCaptcha, or sexyCaptcha, or another one.

This way the bots would have more problems in registering on XOOPS sites.

I don't think bots give a damn about the captcha. If you look at your server logs you'll see they bypass it and attack the registration files directly. There's yet another report in this post.

IMHO, Xoops core files need amending to ensure they actually respect a captcha, or use another method to ensure human interaction is involved in the registration process.

Re: New javascript-based captcha for XOOPS

probably it should be adopted as part of Xoops core, considering Peekay's last comment.
