[Resolved] Sudden flood of fake registrations. Anyone else?
Just wondering if anyone else has suddenly been receiving a flood of fake user registrations over the past few months… ALL from “@hotmail.com” or “@outlook.com”?
While I have Captcha’s (both visual and math) on my Registration page, I still get about two a day, always in the same format of “FirstnameLastname” with no space and an email address that looks totally randomly generated.
Along with the Captcha’s, I require new Registrations to verify their address by email, yet nothing seems to stop these fake registrations with no apparent way to block them. It would seem Microsoft changed something recently in the way Hotmail/Outlook handles Spambots and has a serious problem on it’s hands.
Anyone else experiencing this recently or does my blog just need tweaking?
