Solved Spam through 'Contact the forum'

Post by Tonight September 9th 2020, 5:13 pm

Hello

For a while now there have been a lot of spam messages sent to my forum's administrators through 'Contact the forum' form (located at the bottom of the page).
For example, in September I have so far received 14 spam messages, in August 16 messages.
There seems to be a problem that they are bypassing reCAPTCHA, maybe it should be updated? Does anyone else have that issue?

Example:

I have not had any problems on my 3 forums.

My advice is to remove it on your forum for a short time this sometimes works.
Or you could make a new Email address and make your own Contact us link at the bottom of your forum linked to your new Email address.

I never use the same one as the forum founder account as it's not safe to do this.
