Hello...

I have Joomla 1.7-2 and I have had a plug-in called osolCaptcha.

Now in this I have set everything like this...

Use in mod_login? = No
Auto add in Contact Us form? = Yes
Auto add in Login form(component page)? = Yes
Auto add in (joomla default)Registration ? = Yes
Auto add in Reset Password? = Yes
Auto add in Remind Username? = Yes
Enable second level security for Core forms? = Yes
BotScout Protection = Stop Execution and Mail
Botscout API key = (The API that botScout gave me)
Report -ve results from botsout ip verification = dan@risingsunuk.com
Redirect users from suspected IPs to = http://www.google.com/


I did all of this and still I get loads of bots signing up. How do I stop this?

When you say "loads of bots", how many are we talking? 10 a day, 50 a day...?

As for the specifics on configuring the plugin, what's shown looks reasonable to us but we don't know if it's working correctly or not. We'd suggest that you contact the author of the plugin to see if it's working right or not.

It's remotely possible that you're getting waves of never-before-seen bots. In that case you'd likely need to take additional measures, like an industrial strength CAPTCHA.

Well I have 48 spam bots now since 3 days ago. Not bad but still not grate.

Everyone elses seems to work fine apparently... sound it be down to the fact my site is off a folder called /site2/ and not off the root?

eg...  http://www.risingsunuk.com/site2/

and not...

http://www.risingsunuk.com/


Host did this.... i think its stupid.

I don't think that's an issue.

It looks as though the mod is working. But the CAPTCHA it uses has most likely been cracked.

You could try some stuff with hidden "stumble" fields, time-gating, and a better CAPTCHA (like recaptcha, perhaps).

Might try BotBuster for Joomla
Never used it, but it seems to be much more robust in it's detecting and blocking.
