  • I’m having the same problem the last few days on two different sites.

    Any suggestions?

    Spammers have been able to bypass my CAPTCHA, what can I do?

    First check this: make sure the only other security plugins you have are Akismet or WP-spamFree. Akismet and WP-spamFree are the only other anti-spam plugins approved for use with SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam, others can simply break the CAPTCHA validation so that the CAPTCHA is never checked. If another security plugin is combined(not Akismet or WP-spamFree), the captcha may not block invalid code! Be sure to always test all the CAPTCHA forms after installing or updating themes or plugins.

    Sometimes your site becomes targeted by a spammer that uses a combination of a bot and human captcha solver. See this help forum for a solution

    Try enabling the setting “Enable honeypot spambot trap” on the plugin settings page.

    Try allowing only Registered users to post, and or moderating comments. Read more about Combating Comment Spam
