Security concerns (3 posts)

    I'm using this plugin and I was wondering if you could add a security feature to prevent spamming, because as far as I can tell, there's nothing stopping a bot from filling a db with junk. Is a captcha system out of the question?

    On another note, I haven't looked at the code yet, but I'm going to venture a guess and say that the inputs are being sanitized before inserting them on the db, right?

    After thinking about this, an easier way to deal with spam would be the ability to setup a custom security question (like "What's the color of the sky?") that submits the form to db if it is answered correctly.

    I have no plans on adding any security question feature right now.
    But I'll definitely put it on my to-do list.
