my website using Legenda theme started to be spammed by bot users about 3 weeks ago. Single spam users registered before too, but now bots are registering sometimes a few new users in an hour or two users in a single minute. I delete these spam users and block IPs with Wordfence, but it is not a good strategy for a long time.
I think that there is a problem with your captcha (bots have learned to solve it). I know that this topic appeared on August 2016 raised by mleihs (#122128). You told him, that you will forward it to your developers and add an updated captcha in one of an update. I just want to say: it is not just him, it is me too 🙂 and ask you, when are you going to come out with a solution (preferably something like Google reCaptcha).
I will be grateful for any action, because the current state is very cumbersome and may encourage spammers to further activities. Thank you.
here is the link to this topic: https://www.8theme.com/topic/registration-captcha/
a client reported that since last night there are about 2-3 spam registrations / hour.
I removed the /register page (see trashcan, I added access the login data below) but that doesn’t help. Is there an updated captcha available that I can integrate in the linked version of the theme?
My client is worried and this issue should be resolved quite quickly since it’s disturbing his business routine.
just for your record: I am being still attacked with average of 20-30 registrations a day. It definetely disturbs my business routine. Today I received an email from Google that says social engineering content was reported on my login page. Just as I mentioned on the top of this thread, lack of action encourages spammers to further activities. I am considering Weebly or Shopify instead of running my own website with such problems.
that’s not very helpful. Fix the cause… don’t fight the symptom.
I reported the problem a year (!) ago and you promised me and BlankM that this would be fixed.
Now… a year later it’s still a problem. So … please … just do as you promised and push the bug-fix into the upcoming WooCommerce 3.0 update. Spam protection is not a nice-to-have, it’s a basic feature.
