Where did you upload that? Would you mind giving instructions? As I said many people have been interested in that.

I uploaded it to the Hacks section but I don't see it there yet. It's called Simple GL Captcha

You can download it here until Dirk approves it on the site. Instructions included.

I was slightly irritated that it's 3 MB. Approved now.

bye, Dirk

Wow, that was *easy*! Nice job!

Maybe the instructions should say to put the .js files in the public_html dir instead of the root of GL...?

Yeah your right, Public_html would have been the right choice of words. Not the root of GL but the Root of your site. I'll put that in comments.

Sorry about the 3mb Dirk I gues those JS files are bigger than I thought.

No, the MBs come from the pictures.

I don't see it said anywhere in the CATCHPA files (but I am not a great reader), but I think that in order for the script to provide security against someone that has access to that (public) set of pictures and associated MD5s, one needs to remake the pictures and put in the new associated MD5s in the script.

Hmmm...There is a nicer PHP script for CATCHPA called QuickCAPCHTPA. It uses GDlib to generate the image dynamically. Would be a better implementation. Will take a look at it next weekend.

I was recently hacked by those folks. At least I believe so they logged in using an r57shell script that hides under common file names in your directory most of them however start with a . which most FTP programs can't see.

I found them using SmartFTP.

I removed those two accts as well and banned the IP via my cPanel at my host.

I am getting this error after installing the Captcha:

document.xfrm.uword' is null or not an object


Any idea?

killerbee80@mail.ru added to the list. I think this person is simply signing up at various web sites and forums and posting a link back to another site with adult content with hopes of earning refferal credit. Not sure if that's really setting up for spamming or hacking but it's annoying just the same.

(I deleted the same account from two unrelated geeklog sites I run)

I'd like to bump this, as I get the same problem, but as I said in the comments, it works on the sign up page, no error , but not any other page on the website where the sign up page isn't on.

I have been getting the same problem and finally dove into the problem with a bit of luck. Okay first remove the body onload statement line from the index.thtml file and save it off.
PHP Formatted Code

Current code used in Professional theme
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>{page_title}</title>
<!-- link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="{site_url}/favicon.ico" -->
<!--
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
-->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{css_url}" title="{theme}">
</head>
<body onload="document.xfrm.uword.focus();">

{feed_url}
{plg_headercode}
{advanced_editor}

<script type="text/javascript">
    function delconfirm()
    {
 

 


Then goto your /layout/theme/custom directory where your memberdetail.thtml file is located and change it to whats list below. Notice the change for the body onload statement and placement of it.

PHP Formatted Code

<!-- This is an example template file for the Custom User Registration Feature -->
<!-- To be located under theme/custom directory - Example XSilver/custom/memberdetail.thtml -->
<body onload="document.xfrm.uword.focus();">
{startblock}
{message}

<div align="center">
<form action="{post_url}" method="post" name="xfrm" onsubmit="return jcap();">
  <table width=500 border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
        <tr>


 


This change will work and got rid of the script error messages on the bottom of the IE web browser or other browsers that display such messages.

I was hacked and don't know how to fix it. I am sure it is a simple fix, but with my 11 month old son teething I just can't seem to get a quiet moment to get my head around it.
How can I fix it?

Well Jo...would you enlighten us as to what your problem is and what makes you think that you got hacked? Please elaborate as to what happened and include any log portions that maybe relevent to this. We can't help if we don't know what happened.

I went to your site and it looked normal. The only thing I noticed was the script error message that I had previously had a fix for on my last posting. Follow that and your error script message should go away.

I'm not getting them anymore, but then again, I've only had a few spammers, attempt to create an account on my site. But since captcha was installed, there's been no false signups at all.

unfortuatly they are increasing in numbers again, and using a more varied range of email addresses.

chilso:

An easier way to do this is to simply block any signups from mail.ru. Go to system/lib-custom.php and add [or modify] the function custom_usercheck().

Something like this does the trick:

PHP Formatted Code
function custom_usercheck ($username, $email)
{
    $msg = '';

        if ( stristr( $email, '@mail.ru' ) )
        {
                $msg = 'Due to the number of spam accounts created using this domain, we don't accept registration from <b>mail.ru</b>.  If you would still like to sign up, either use a different email address or contact us.  We apologise for any inconvenience.';
        }

    return $msg;
}
