    Hi
    on my website http://www.vyperlook.com someone (some bot i think) is registering a new member almost every minute . that is impossible,so it must be automatic. how can i prevent this ? i am already using CAPTCHA,i wonder how is it able to register it automatically ?

    thanks

    I'd disable user registration for a while and it may then go away. If there is a recurring theme in each registration then you can put in validation measures to prevent that.

    Another clever way I've seen done is creating a text box and hiding it in the CSS, and if the bot enters anything in that text box you know it's a bot.

    Take a look here for others:
