[Resolved] Increase in spam

Recommended Posts

HI All,

I have suddenly started to get a lot of spam product reviews. I have new recaptcha activated and this works fine on the contact form but does not appear at all on the product review page. CC6.08 Galaxy skin (but still the same with foundation skin)

Any advice would be appreciated.

Dave

Please be aware that once a reCaptcha has been solved anywhere, the "session" remembers this and does not challenge the visitor anymore for the duration of that "session".

A session will eventually time out, and is based on cookies.

So, just to make sure you have a fresh session, kill the cookies to your site.

But are you actually getting an increase in spam? The session cookies situation just explains why people who have already proved they are human do not have to do it again during that session.
