Math captcha locked me out of my own site!

  • I installed match captcha for my blog because of spam and now I can’t even login because its asking for my username, password and a captcha but there is no field to fill in the captcha equation. I went to my cpanel and deleted the entire plugin but still nothing happened.

    Here is the query that I’m getting:

    A username and password are being requested by http://my-site-adress.com. The site says:
    “wordpress attack protection CAPTCHA. Enter username: w25sou password: The result of math 15+3”

    Username: Text box field
    Passowrd: Text box field

    Please help me out.
    Thanks

    There is no such message in whole our plugin, so it is not the right place to look for solution. You must have had installed something that coused this issue.

    Please report if you find what and why.

    Agreed. The plugin works fine, I just tested with login form and it works.

    If it were this plugin, removing the wp-content/plugin/wp-math-captcha files would fix it.

    Please try renaming other plugins to disable them.

    It turned out that I was wrong about the plugin.
    My hosting partner installed a login form for extra security without telling me, so I confronted them and they told me why they had to do it.

    So, I re-installed the math captcha again and everything is now fine 🙂
