5-character validation not deterring spammers


Recommended Posts

Hi -

We've been using the standard 5-char validation on our signup form since using WHMCS - about two years - and it's been pretty much fine. But in the last week we've had a number of spam signups. I'm wondering if the default is no longer good enough, and the spammers have worked out how to automatically read them.

I've changed to reCAPTHCHA now; I was wondering if anyone else has seen this?
