Support » Plugin: Fast Secure Contact Form » Spam emails coming through contact form

  • Hi

    Recently I’ve noticed my client websites getting spam emails coming in from the Contact Form. I already have Captcha on the form through your plugin.

    About 10 clients are getting it currently all of a sudden.. Haven’t had this issue previously.

    How can I avoid this through the contact form. I thought Captcha was always good and avoiding these types of emails.

    Urgent if someone has time. Thanks

    Thx

  • Enable the recaptcha on the security tab it is better.

    HI

    Yes I already enabled it on the Security tab choosing “Security Image Recaptcha”

    Maybe that one is NOT as secure as the Recaptcha V2 ?

    Will I change to that instead for all clients ?

    Thx

    I also got hundreds of spam from my installation of si-contact-form on my standard website (most spam from here) and WordPress. That is with CAPTCHA enabled.

    I modified the code to add Recaptcha v2 for my standard website, and zero spam from there now.

    I just enabled Recaptcha v2 for the WordPress si-contact-form, seems good so far.

    Somehow, these robots have “learned” how to to get past the CAPTCHA, which was fine for many years.

    Ok, forget the Captcha feature, use the Recaptcha v2 option instead, zero spam from wordpress fast secure contact form.

    I have version 4.0.56, yet all these Payday Loan spam came in starting the month of April 2018. I guess standard Captcha works, but it was compromised by the one who injected all these spam. (see https://wingrove-services.co.uk/fast-secure-contact-form/)

    At least Recaptcha v2 is still good.

    HI

    Thanks for that, I am updating clients now with V2 instead.
    Getting a few clients getting hit with this.

    So just to explain, what is the main difference, and why have the OPtion 1 in there in the first place if it gets attacked easier ?

    Thanks
