    Hi

    Trying to login to my wordpress and getting this above the username and pass fields every time I try to login:

    ERROR: Possible spam bot

    I haven't changed anything except update a few plugins a few days ago.

    How can I login or get in?

    I would deactivate that plugin manually via FTP.

    Can follow these steps.

    I think that message is coming from captcha

    Renamed:
    /public_html/mysite.com/wp-content/plugins

    To

    /public_html/mysite.com/wp-content/plugins.hold

    Logged in without issue, renamed plugin.hold back to plugin, logged out and failed on log back in. Done the same again but Updated captcha plugin this time and tried logging in and it worked.

    Must have been a problem with captcha
