donatinho created the topic: Spam bypass required field and validation rules

Hi,
I have had a lot of problem with mail back because the re-captcha element didn't stop the spammer.
I have tried the Honey spot and the Math Captcha, but nothing changed.
I have noticed the the spammer bypass the required field with a validation library rule.
In particular I have set a field text with a FF_realamount validation rule and I have tried by myself the funcionality, but the spammer bypass it by inserting normal text.

Could the problem solved by the hosting or I need to find the solution in the form?
Thanks

Hello.

Have you tried to strengthen your reCaptcha with its parameters?
This is done at Google from the management of your reCaptcha.

Push the slider into its intermediate or maximum position to improve its efficiency.

Hi,
the security parameter was already set to maximum into the Google Re-Captcha admin console

Hello.

Are you sure that spam is transmitted by a BreezingForms form?
You do not, by chance, have an active contact in your Joomla configuration that would allow you to send these spam messages

Hi,
I have found this message in the "manage records" in the breezingform joomla component. When I explode the record from the component I relize that there are empty field that with validation rule set it is strange.
Anyway where is the configuration of active contact that do you mean?

Hello.

The Honeypot method with PHP test can be extended to each field required in the form.

If bots can bypass javascript, they will not be able to do so with the php test, which is done after clicking the submit button on the form.

Try to extend this check to all your required fields.

For more information, see this post .

Eddy
